Hi, i have an x-ray done to see if my gums were fine, and they are. However, the x-ray revealed that my bottom wisdom teeth, which are not visible by the eye are pushing against other teeth. My dentist suggest through surgery, they be removed to prevent an impact latter on other bottom teeth. I want a second opinion on the matter please. Greatly appreciated.

  • If the wisdom tooth is pushing the adjacent tooth then in my opinion wisdom tooth should be extracted otherwise they can have adverse effect on the other teeth. Somtimes adjacent teeth can get decayed also and can have acute pain because of that. In any case, you have to get the wisdom teeth extracted. For complete knowledge on wisdom teeth impaction and their pulling out you can read the following article from our website... http://www.identalhub.com/article_understanding-wisdom-teeth-152.aspx
