View Full Version : Do wisdom teeth grow just to be pulled out?
05-22-2008, 11:14 PM
Did mother nature make a mistake and made wisdom teeth grow just to be pulled out? Or is it a scam and getting rid of teeth that should serve us because the other ones are in a worse shape and should be removed by the time we get wisdom teeth? I scheduled an appointment with the detist because there is little space in my jaw, but I am not so sure if I should remove all of them or only 1 or 2 (depending on their condition) or leave them.
Please let me know by tomorrow, if anybody knows anything about that.
If anybody knows sth please email me info at email@example.com thank you!
They're leftover from when we had larger jaws. If you leave them in, they run the risk of crowding your existing teeth and making huge problems with crookedness. I'd talk to the dentist about how many to remove, but if you already have a small mouth, all of them is probably in your best interest.

Mine grew in and did not overcrowd my teeth...my teeth are still straight. I still have both top ones but the bottom ones were removed because they became infected.
Whether or not to remove them depends on the person and if they are affecting other teeth or becoming infected or not, I would think

Thank you ladies:) I'll have them pulled out today, but I became aprehensive if this is the right thing to do. I'll go with clear conscience. Thank you very much for a quick response.

I've had wisdom teeth and more removed. Sadly I listened sometimes to the wrong advice and had more teeth removed then saved. I know lots of people have had their wisdom teeth removed without problems. May want to do 2 at a time if on same side vs. all. I'm thinking it may be hard on the body, but everyone responds differently of course. Feel great afterwards.

Your mother had to be eating a high raw diet rich in fat soluble nutrients to build a wide enough palate for them. That is what I learned from Weston Price stuff. Primitive people tend to have room for them if they haven't taken up sugar, flour, canned foods, etc.

I love my wisdom teeth, because when they came in they eliminated the gap in my front teeth I had as a child! :D I've never had a dentist even suggest that I have mine removed... does that mean I'm a big-mouth? :confused: :D

Yeah, we don't need them anymore but it's only necessary to remove them if they're causing a problem. All four of mine were impacted (not growing in straight) and hurting me. They weren't even visible by the time I was 19, and my dentist said that they wouldn't grow in any more because each of them were growing into the tooth next to it, or something to that effect. So, I had all of them removed in one visit. They gave me a local anaesthetic and I was awake for the whole thing. It didn't hurt, as I was numb, but it wasn't pleasant being awake for it. I'm glad I don't have to go through it again. Hope your procedure went smoothly.

Mother Nature doesn't make mistakes :)
If our wisdom teeth are bothering us then we've done something erroneous to our organism throughout life that has resulted in a cause of such an issue. Sometimes it can seem almost impossible to identify what might we have done in the past to make our wisdom teeth a problem, but Mother Nature simply doesn't make mistakes :)

Since going raw my top left wisdom tooth has been aching. :mad: Does this mean I have to get it removed?
