Wisdom teeth question

Hi. I'm new here. First post

I haven't had my wisdom teeth (any 4 of them) removed yet. First consultation about 4 years ago and they said they wanted to wait a bit longer. I am now 24 with them still in, and in recent months, I've been having this weird sensation in my mouth. I feels like pressure on my teeth on my upper jaw. I'm worried that my wisdom teeth are moving my other teeth around, and visual inspection it seems like they are slanted a bit, but I'm no doctor and my brain could be playing tricks on me. But here's my main concern: I've been living in Ireland for the past 6 months and am currently backpacking Europe until the fall. I don't plan on returning home (Canada) until Jan 2015. My travelers insurance only covers emergency dental work. Is this something that can wait until I get home, or should I pay the price to go see a dentist regardless and get some kind of insight as to what's going on?
Many thanks.

Consult a reputable oral health practitioner, he is the best authority to answer all your queries regarding wisdom teeth removal. A patient's case can become more complicated if your tooth is misaligned. Some dentists recommend early extraction because impacted ones can lead to infection.
