Wisdom Teeth, Sedation Dentistry
by Dr. Michael Popp on Aug 27, 2019

*Effective December 2019, Marlborough Dental Centre will be offering Oral Sedation Only.


Wisdom teeth typically appear between the ages of 17 and 21 and while some patients may not experience any problems, at times wisdom teeth are ‘impacted’ and cannot emerge from the gums and develop normally. Here are 4 signs that you may require wisdom teeth removal. 

Typically the last teeth to erupt, wisdom teeth are the molars found at the very back of your mouth and will emerge during your late teens or early twenties. If your wisdom teeth are impacted or growing at a wrong angle due to crowding, having them removed will: 

  • Prevent damage to neighboring teeth 
  • Lower your risk of cavities, plaque buildup, and periodontal disease
  • Protect the natural alignment of your other teeth 
  • Prevent any associated pain or discomfort

4 Signs You Require Wisdom Tooth Removal 

Did you know that almost 85% of all adults have to undergo a wisdom tooth removal procedure to protect their oral health? If you have wisdom teeth, here are 4 sure-fire signs that your dentist may suggest you remove them: 

1. You have oral pain. The most common sign that you require wisdom tooth removal is a pain at the back of your mouth. If you experience any discomfort while cleaning your teeth, eating, or just generally, you should visit your dentist. 

2. You suffer from jaw stiffness. As your wisdom teeth grow, they will shift your other teeth and your jaw. This means that often you’ll experience pain and discomfort in your jaw,  or you may be unable to open your mouth as wide as normal. 

3. You have problems with your sinuses. What many people are unaware of is that wisdom teeth can have a huge impact on your sinuses and may lead to pain, congestion, and pressure. 

4. Your gums are inflamed. Sometimes, when wisdom teeth start emerging, they create a flap of gum tissue near the tooth. This can trap small particles of food and bacteria, causing your gums to become hard and inflamed. This is called pericoronitis. If you are experiencing this, you may need to remove your wisdom teeth.
