Acting quickly is the secret to success when the first pains of wisdom teeth strike.


To kick off today’s blog, please humour us and picture the following scenario in your mind.

In 2008, you are discovered by talent spotters through your YouTube covers of popular songs. Just a year later, you are releasing your first E.P., which goes platinum in the U.S.

You subsequently become the first ever artist to have no less than seven songs from a debut album featuring in the Billboard Hot 100.

Your fame grows. You are one of the most followed celebrities on social media, with over ten billion total video views. You are listed on no less than four separate occasion by Forbes magazine as being among the Top 10 most powerful celebs in the world.

You are, in other words, Justin Bieber. A man who seems to have it all. But wait a minute! In July of 2015, you ‘confide’ in your millions of followers that you are having your wisdom teeth removed.

Now if this isn’t proof that wisdom teeth removal can strike anybody, we don't know what is!

But that’s the whole point of our blog - wisdom teeth symptoms are no respecters of reputation or wealth, but seemingly strike with a cruel sense of randomness.

And whether you're Justin Bieber or Joe Soap, once you feel those initial pangs of pain, you are inevitably headed towards wisdom teeth extraction.


The reason for this is simple. The root of the wisdom teeth will continue to grow strongly for two years from the first time you notice them. This means that if you put treatment on the long finger, it will be a more uncomfortable procedure when you eventually get around to it.


And trust us when we tell you that the problem will not go away of its own accord. When you have an impacted wisdom tooth, it is actually trapped in the gum area and has nowhere to go. Your choice is simple. You can let the wisdom teeth continue to cause you pain – and potentially do damage to your existing teeth – or you can bid them farewell and never experience this pain again.


That’s because your wisdom teeth are actually a third set of molars that our ancestors used to avail of for chewing on roots and hard substances. But nobody gets a fourth set, so once your wisdom teeth are gone, they're gone for good!


And lest you think that there is some form of effective wisdom teeth pain relief out there, trust us when we tell you that there isn’t. Over-the-counter painkillers may have an effect in the short-term, but the increasing levels of pain will eventually render them useless.


The bottom line is that there’s just no place to hide when the initial pangs of wisdom teeth strike. So if you are experiencing sudden and unexplained pain, your best course of action is to drop into your dentist and get confirmation that it is, indeed, your wisdom teeth that are causing the problem.
