Wisdom teeth usually erupt around age 20 with a tendency of having earlier eruption in younger ages nowadays. They mostly cause problems when there is insufficient space for them to erupt fully or when they are impacted. Patient usually experience toothache when they are erupting. It is best to have a panoramic xray done to assess the space for the wisdom teeth and also the condition of the wisdom teeth to see whether extractions of wisdom teeth are needed. Panoramic xrays can be done in West Harbour dental and it only costs $70 each.
In west harbour dental, we offer wide ranges of cosmetic dental treatments from teeth whitening to veneers or crowns.
