Wisdom Teeth Removal in Kamloops


At Westsyde Dental Centre, we proudly provide wisdom teeth removal services in Kamloops. Our priority is to make sure that you're comfortable throughout the procedure. Wisdom teeth usually start developing at the rear of the mouth and often don't surface until adolescence or early adulthood. Due to their late emergence, they can grow in a way that leads to crowding, causing them to emerge at awkward angles or not fully appear. This situation commonly results in significant discomfort, making wisdom teeth removal necessary.

Neglecting the extraction of abnormally growing wisdom teeth can lead to complications such as cellulitis, abscesses, dental decay, and gum disease. Please schedule an appointment with us for wisdom teeth removal in Kamloops in case of any wisdom teeth discomfort. For more detailed information, please explore our FAQs section.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction


Given the potential complications associated with wisdom teeth, it is advisable to have them removed. Wisdom teeth can contribute to oral health issues that include: orofacial pain, dental disease, and decay. At Westsyde Dental Center, we highly recommend professional wisdom teeth removal services for residents in Kamloops. Swift removal reduces the risk of oral complications, ensuring better overall dental health.

The Benefits of Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed


Here are some benefits of removing your wisdom tooth.

  • You will enjoy good dental hygiene. It will be easier to brush and maintain your teeth. ​

  • Your teeth will not be as crowded. A space crunch would mean your wisdom teeth could force their way between or behind other teeth. The problem is that if food gets trapped between your wisdom and adjacent teeth, it slowly leads to decay and more cavities.

  • You can avoid tumours or cysts in your jawbone. The pain can be intense. A dentigerous cyst, for instance, is formed at the crown of a wisdom tooth.

We’re a family-oriented, general dentistry office serving patients of all ages, and we have special interests in general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and laser dentistry.

When Should I Remove My Wisdom Teeth?


Typically, wisdom teeth emerge between the ages of 17-25 and are detected through X-rays. If they align correctly and are in a functional position that is easy to clean, you may not need to remove them. However, removal becomes necessary if:

  • The wisdom teeth are impacted and lack sufficient space for proper emergence and development.

  • The wisdom teeth grow in a crooked manner, occupying excessive space.

  • The wisdom teeth become trapped inside the gums or jaw.

  • The appearance of wisdom teeth results in intense pain.

  • The growth of wisdom teeth leads to the formation of cysts.

  • The emergence of wisdom teeth causes inflammation of the gums.

  • Wisdom teeth are challenging to clean, contributing to the development of cavities.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?  


In the section above, we've mentioned the various issues associated with the growth of wisdom teeth that necessitate removal. While in some people, the appearance of wisdom teeth might not create any problems, such instances are rare. Typically, the appearance of wisdom teeth is associated with much pain and discomfort, which only a removal can remedy. Apart from this, improperly growing wisdom teeth can cause numerous issues. When there is a partially erupted wisdom tooth, there is an opening around it, which provides conditions conducive to bacteria growth and eventual infections. There is a high chance of cysts developing near wisdom teeth, which can cause significant damage to the other teeth and the jawbone. Lastly, crooked wisdom teeth can cause moving and shifting, which has associated impacts such as later problems in chewing and speaking.


Early wisdom teeth removal will prevent these complications from occurring in the first place. If you'd like to know more, please contact our team. We invite you to view our financing section if you're wondering about financing.
