Did you get your wisdom teeth removed?

Mine are just starting to come in. It started 2 months ago and they haven't bothered me (yet). I was wondering whether most people get them removed or leave them in.

  • Yes, I had all four of mine removed at the same time. They weren't bothering me but I used to have braces and my orthodontist recommended getting them removed.

  • Probably should get them removed at some point but they aren't really bothering me so I haven't been to the dentist yet. Keeping an eye on them tho.

  • I had some of them removed. My mouth was large enough to accommodate some of them, so there was no reason to have them removed.

  • All four of mine grew in perfectly. I have to admit I was a bit worried since I kept hearing people getting infections and having them grown improperly etc

  • Yeah I did after I got my braces off, sometimes you don't need them removed it isn't necessary unless its hurting or growing in weird.

  • I think it depends on if you have enough room in your mouth or if they'll cause problems if they were to grow in. I got mine taken out last year.

  • As a Sophomore in DNT. Your wisdom teeth erupt between ages 17 and 25. During that time, it might hurt and your cheeks might swell. However, if it doesn't hurt- then there is no need to remove it.

    In the later years, the wisdom tooth tends to have problems, we as dentists do not perform any treatment due to its variations in size, shape or even number of roots (yes, the wisdom tooth is very diverse). We usually extract it as a result. Don't remove it unless a doctor suggests it.
