When Do Wisdom Teeth Come In?
Wisdom teeth usually begin to emerge during the mid to late teenage years, though it can be well into your late twenties. If you or your child has had braces, you are probably familiar with the third set of molars and having your West Airdrie dentist track their development. But if you feel like there are new teeth growing behind your last set of molars, you need to make an appointment to have them assessed.
What’s Wrong With Having Wisdom Teeth?
Do They Need To Be Removed?
A small percentage of people don’t have problems with their wisdom teeth. But for most people, they often don’t come in well. Impacted third molars push against the roots of other healthy teeth, which can be very painful. Other molars that only come in part of the way are difficult to clean and allow food particles and bacteria to build up under the gums. This can cause decay in adjacent tooth and bone structures. In these cases, it is better to proactively remove the teeth.

Great experience! Dr. Johal did an amazing job re-doing a 20 year old filling on my front tooth, right before my wedding! It is unnoticeable and my smile looked great in my wedding photos. The entire team is super friendly and professional! I will be going back for all my dental needs. Highly recommend!
Had a fantastic experience here. With the amount of dentists available it's hard to choose the right one. Everyone here was amazing. Front desk staff, hygienists, dentists etc. Very clean and professional. Everything was explained in full and I left with alot more knowledge than I could have expected. Billing is on par with the provincial guidelines as well. Can't go wrong!
Love the folks here! As like most people, I'm not a huge fan of my teeth being worked on. But everyone here from the girls at the front counter to the hygienists and dentist himself do everything in their power to make it as painless and enjoyable as possible. Great job you guys!!
All the staff are friendly and professional. Always on time. Rebecca, the hygienist, made me feel like I have been going there for years. Highly recommend this place. Oh and they do direct billing and explain everything for you. That’s a big plus too. Third visit and always left with a smile.
