You’ve been told you or your teenager needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. And you know this is a common procedure. But you’re wondering if they really need to be removed. The answer is most often yes. Your mouth was designed to hold 28 teeth, and by the time your wisdom teeth start to grow, those 28 slots are already filled, making it difficult for an additional four wisdom teeth to grow correctly. Not all wisdom teeth become impacted and need to be removed, but it is important to be evaluated as soon as possible to avoid problems down the road.
Look as good as you feel!
