I went to the dentist and they took x-rays and they said that my wisdom teeth are not showing up on my xrays. One of my wisdom teeth are coming in and they are starting to hurt, should i call my dentist and have them removed

  • The wisdom teeth are extracted when either there is less space for its eruption or when the anguation is not correct that is it is tilted and not erupting in the straight line. If your dentist feels that it has to be extracted as it is impacted then it is better to get it extracted.The wisdom tooth as such does not help in mastication of the food as it is considered to be the extra tooth now so if you have to get it extracted you are not suffering in any way.
