    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).
