    If wisdom teeth are coming in sideways, but not causing any pain or other issues do they need to be removed? My son is 21 and I hate to put him through unnecessary surgery. And wondering if removal can cause cavitation?

    Really? Wow! That’s great! Instinctively it seems odd to pull teeth that aren’t causing a problem. Thank you!

    Curious to hear any more advice on this topic too. My son's dentist/orthodontist are telling us our son needs his 4 wisdom teeth removed (he is 17) as his mouth is not large enough even none of them are coming through yet. I hate to put him through this if not needed. I get the impression that they may be fishing for business but it is hard to tell.

    @Jack Kruse , being a former dentist, could explain it better.
    There are some nerves in the area of wisdom teeth that better be not disrupted (causing life-long problems).
    A mouth that is too small for the teeth
    comes so often that I think it is just a story to make a $$ on the customer (not patient).

    Wow, came here to post about this exact thing and happened to see this thread, currently 34 and never had wisdom teeth touched as my logic was not to mess with them if they are not causing issues. The past few days I had sinus pressure, I’ve gotten over that for the most part but now have slight swelling in my left cheek and mild pain in my left jaw when I open it to eat, as well as redness back behind/above the jaw seems maybe like TMJ. Spoke to a dentist friend and she told me to get my wisdom teeth pulled based on what I described and a pan X-ray I shared from a year ago. Going in for a consultation on Monday but in the mean time figured I would see if anyone had any good suggestions!
