Wisdom teeth removal? Or not?
My 16 year old's dentist is recommending we have her wisdom teeth removed "because we do it a lot earlier these days, before the root system gets connected with the nerves and becomes a much more involved procedure". They have not even erupted through the gums yet. I had mine removed at 26, with no problem, and only because my dentist kept insisting it was the right thing to do. They weren't bothering me. Is this what most people do these days? Remove 4 large teeth "because that's how it's done these days", even though they are not bothering her, and not even actually grown in yet??
