Wisdom teeth

Posted on By Bob W In Patient/Consumer Inquiries

Dentists have recommended me to remove the wisdom teeth since I was 27 years old. Now I am 40 and the wisdom teeth grew as indicated in the Invisalign and panoramic pics.

On the beginning, a surgeon recommended cutting the wisdom teeth in half and extract because they were still under the gum. However, he noted that there is a nerve very close to one of the teeth on the left side and he told me about the risks.

I decide to hold on because I did not have problems during that time.

Now 13 years later, a dentist recommended me to remove the teeth because they are hard to clean and cause gum issues that may result in losing the other teeth.

Can you please advise what do you think? My parents didn't have to remove wisdom teeth.

Sometimes when wisdom teeth can also lead to bacterial infection,hence it is suggested that you remove it for a good dental health.
