Should I Remove My Wisdom tooth
Your mouth undergoes numerous changes as you age. The emergence of your third molars, which are the teeth at the back of your mouth, is an important dental milestone that normally occurs between the ages of 17 and 21. Because they emerge at a later age, these teeth have been dubbed wisdom teeth in the past.
Healthy wisdom teeth might aid in chewing when they emerge properly. It’s typical to experience some discomfort as your wisdom teeth emerge, just like babies who feel cranky when they’re teething, but you should consult a dentist if you’re experiencing pain.
If there isn’t enough room for wisdom teeth to emerge or they emerge in the improper location, they can cause issues. When your dentist says your wisdom teeth are impacted, he is referring to the fact that they are locked in your jaw or beneath your gums. When this happens, food might become trapped if wisdom teeth are not in the proper position. Cavity-causing bacteria can thrive in this environment. Wisdom teeth that have partially emerged can provide a pathway for bacteria to infiltrate the gums and cause inflammation. Your jaw may also experience discomfort, swelling, and stiffness as a result of this. Wisdom teeth that don’t have enough room to grow can also cause crowding and destroy nearby teeth. Over a long period of time, a cyst can occur on or around a wisdom tooth that has been impacted. This could cause harm to surrounding teeth’s roots, as well as the bone that supports your teeth.
You should consider removing your wisdom teeth when there is recurring or persistent pain or infection, when the neighbouring teeth start to get affected or if there are early signs of gum disease. Most often, the wisdom tooth itself would start to rot due to its position which is hard to clean effectively. Your dentist would advise an extraction of wisdom tooth immediately if there are cysts or even tumours sighted.
The extraction process depends on the position of the wisdom tooth. If the tooth grows straight upright or downwards like the rest of the other teeth, a regular extraction can be done. If the wisdom tooth is partially embedded within the gums, a minor surgical process would be done where the dentist would make an incision in the gums to remove the wisdom tooth.
Most often, our patients were not aware that their wisdom teeth have emerged until they start experiencing pain. We advise everyone to adhere to regular dental check-ups so that we can spot the emergence of wisdom teeth early and administer the necessary care and treatment.

I had my dental implant surgery done at Beverly Wilshire Dental Clinic with Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil. I am still astonished at how comfortable the whole procedure was. Not only was it totally painless (honestly!), from start to finish I was given clear information about the procedure and the pricing, all in a very relaxed environment. I cannot recommend the clinic and Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil highly enough.
While visiting KL, I broke a veneer on my front tooth that required immediate replacement. I found Beverly Wilshire Dental online and scheduled an appointment. They were able to see me the next day and being from North America I was unsure of what to expect. I can gladly report that my experience and the work performed was excellent. My highest compliments to Dr. Tan Ying Yin for her professionalism and for the quality of her work.
I went for a routine scaling and teeth cleaning at this place. I must say, Dr. Tan Ying Yin is very professional and friendly. She explained the entire procedure and was constantly checking if everything was okay throughout the entire procedure. I would definitely recommend this clinic. Thank you Dr. for the excellent and very professional service! 5-stars for sure!

Great skill. I had serious teeth alignment issue and my doctor managed to fix it nicely!
Amazing dental centre, amazing people, doctors, and dentists.

Appointment was right on time, service from the attendants was friendly in total job well done, my teeth shines brighter and I feel better in my mouth.
Very comfortable and friendly. no pain at all for my root canal.
Our 1st visit to the dental centre for my daughter having gum bleeding issue. The appointment arrangement was effortless. I just dropped them a message via Google and they responded quickly in the morning. On the day, the service is cordial. My daughter loves it.
I had a perfect uncomplicated treatment. After another dentist told me that I have to get 6 holes fixed and at least one root treatment done I was looking for another opinion and it was the best decision I've ever made! Had my holes fixed in a short time and happy with the result.
I'm extremely happy with my teeth after having braces done here. Smiling away with confidence. Thanks Beverly Wilshire Dental. Will recommend surely to any searching for dental services. Kudos!!
Easy, considerate staff and doctors. We are international patients and came for a cleaning and 2nd opinion. Our dentist in Hong Kong recommended 2 more crowns, but this dentist saw no issues and only recommended a couple cosmetic options, but did not press for us to get them. Our visit was efficient.
Great team and excellent customer service, I did my teeth whitening using Zoom technology. Very happy with the results and the price was surprisingly very affordable. Keep up the good work guys.
Brought both my kids 2.5year and 7 year for their first appointment. The staff are very nice. Dr was very gentle and understanding. It was a pleasant first experience for them.
