Calgary’s Wisdom Teeth Clinic

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often than not, they are misaligned and or impacted and require removal.

Our Wisdom Teeth Services

Why do wisdom teeth have to be removed?

If impacted wisdom teeth are left in place, they can cause excruciating pain, they can push against and damage or destroy the teeth in front of them. And in rare cases can lead to in infection or can cause a cyst that can damage other teeth roots or bone support. Teeth that are partially erupted can be at a higher risk of infection because the partially emerged teeth create a passageway for bacteria that cause gum disease and oral infection. These teeth are also at a higher risk of decay because they are inaccessible and hard to keep clean.

My wisdom teeth aren’t hurting yet, why should I remove them now?

Can’t I just wait until they hurt?

Wisdom teeth removal, while done by dentists, is not at all like routine dental work. If your dentist has told you that your wisdom teeth should come out for one of the reasons listed above. Then chances are very good that at one point they will become a problem in the future. Therefore, we strongly urge you to plan ahead for this inevitability. This means being proactive even if they are not currently bothering you.

The main reasons to plan ahead for your wisdom teeth removal.

If you plan ahead, you are able to take your time finding a suitable dentist. Because wisdom teeth removal is very complicated (especially when they are impacted or there is exceptional root anatomy etc). Not all dentists can, or will remove wisdom teeth. Often time these dentists are booked quite far in advance, and or work limited hours. For instance, in our office we have several dentists who are able to remove wisdom teeth. However, if your wisdom teeth became a problem on a weekend or evening, these particular dentists would not be here, as they work limited hours, therefore, you would be forced to wait until an appointment could be booked. The pain from wisdom teeth can be excruciating, if you wait for them to start really hurting and then are unable to get in with an appropriate dentist to have them removed. You could be very uncomfortable.

If you plan ahead you can take advantage of sedation.

The process of removing wisdom teeth can be unpleasant. Even though it can be done in a dental office, the process of removing these teeth is considered a surgery. The Dentist must make incisions and remove both soft tissue and bone, sometimes the teeth even have to sectioned into smaller pieces. During this process there are many different noises and sensations as well as pushing, and manual manipulation of the tooth, and needing to have their mouth wide open for a long time can be very uncomfortable and even upsetting for some patients. Therefore, most dentists recommend that patients be sedated for wisdom teeth surgery.

Properly preparing for sedation is a process that takes time and requires a pre-operative consultation to measure baseline vital signs and have the patient’s overall health assessed. If the dentist has questions or concerns about the patient’s overall health a medical clearance letter could be required from the patient’s physician (this alone can take weeks). On the day of the sedation appointment patients must not eat or drink anything for 8 hours prior to the appointment and must come with a caregiver. Patients being sedation must arrange to take time off work or school and are not able to drive a car or be responsible for young children for 24 hours after their appointment.

Therefore, If you are presenting at an office, needing your wisdom teeth removed immediately due to pain and or infection. even if there is a dentist on hand, that can remove them, that dentist would not be able to sedate you for the procedure.

Don’t just take our word for it.
I've been going to Brentwood Village Dental for years now and it's always a great experience for me. I'm always welcomed by the smiling girls up at the front and the wait to get in isn't long. I recently went in for a checkup and cleaning and it was lovely. The girl who was taking care of me was very personable and conversation was funny and great - there's nothing better than having great company while getting your teeth cleaned 😉 I will definitely be back....more regularly and would highly recommend this place!! Thank you Brentwood Village Dental Clinic for being so wonderful time and time again!read more

My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Dr T Kim and he was absolutely amazing. The instructions were very clear. Dr Kim is polite, thorough and very competent. He even did do a house call to check back on his patient. He has a special way to connect with his patients which put them at ease. We had other dental work done by him, we were equally satisfied with excellent work. We never had complications.read more

Everyone here is so amazing! I have been seeing Dr Orr since I first moved to Calgary about 20 years ago. I come back to him whenever possible because of his wonderful personality and gentle manner. I can't think of a single complaint in all this time about any of the other staff or hygenists I've seen over the years either - stellar team!read more

After my phone told me the dentist office was across from where the sign at the mall says, I called to double check. The feeling I got just from calling the receptionist was that this place was helpful, and patient (what everyone wants out of a dentist office). Upon arrival, the staff were friendly and had me fill out the general survey for new patients. I used to be really great at the dentist until my last visit (at another office) a few years back. My last experience was unpleasant and so I felt a little anxious coming to a new dentist. I let the hygienist (Alona, sp?) know about my past experience and she made sure to get me comfortable in the chair. She was also really nice, so I expected much of the same from the Dr who was going to check for what I thought was going to be a mouthful of cavities (thankfully that wasn't the case). They gave me suggestions for oral care and I was on my way within an hour. They also direct bill which is a GIANT bonus, and are affordable compared to other dental offices in the city.Would recommend 10/10 visiting again and telling my friends 🙂 Thanks for the check up!read more

I had been unable to eat or sleep in days and had a dental infection that 2 rounds of antibiotics was making worse. These were the first people to not treat me like morons because I got an infected tooth ( the hospital at 1 am because I hadn't slept in 3 days for example was completely ignorant). And they helped me. I owe so much to them and still have the tooth in my mouth simply because they actually listened to what I was saying. Everyone assumed neglect where resistance was the issue. Thank you Brentwood Village Dental. I will be back.read more

My family and I have been patients at this clinic for almost three years. I have been more than pleased with the service, attention and professionalism from Drs. Kim, Tan, Baghdadi and Rodriguez not to mention the dental assistants, receptionists and hygienists. Always so polite and accommodating. Dr. Kim saved my tooth from extraction by performing a filling to it. I am very grateful! Thank you also to Drs. Kim and Tan for being there to help make my younger daughter's visits at the dentist a smooth and positive experience! Very content with your clinic. There is a calm peaceful atmosphere reigning over the clinic.read more
