6 Reasons To Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed ASAP
written by: Megan Cohen
Abscess and infection.
Because wisdom teeth are so far back in the mouth they can be hard to clean and harbor bacteria that can cause periodontal infection.
The mouth only fits 28 teeth and when 32 are left in they can cause severe pain and even decay of the teeth next to them.
3. Migration of other teeth
If you had braces but leave in your wisdom teeth in they may shift around the teeth in the rest of mouth, undoing your orthodontist’s magic.
4. A chance at Youtube stardom.
You’re not gonna want to miss out on recording a viral video of yourself post-operation.
5. Ice Cream
This is basically an excuse to eat Ice cream, milkshakes and smoothies for a week straight.
6. You’ll probably have to do it eventually.
85% of people get their wisdom teeth out voluntarily or after a serious infection requiring surgery.
