Did you get your wisdom teeth taken out?

I just did a teeth whitening session and as I examined the results I noticed that my bottom wisdom teeth are already in and the tops are starting to come. Not sure if I should waste my time and money to get them removed if they have started to come in without any issues. Anybody make that decision and end up regretting it?

I noticed it's mostly white people that go and do the big surgery to get them removed. Is this just some unnecessary luxury b.s. ... or like a white person thing?

    I never got mine removed. If you're not in pain why bother.

    They usually remove them due to pain or lack of room when coming in. If you feel aight, then I say cool but best to check with a dentist. I got mine removed when I was 16 as there was no room for them to grow and caused massive pain.

    If you have the room in your mouth and are able to clean them properly it should be okay. But a lot of times people can't get back there and brush sufficient enough and they begin to rot and then rot the teeth closest to them. It'd be best to ask a dentist if you can leave them or not.

    Even if they don't give you any pain, it's best to remove them while you're young. Like the last poster said, if you leave them in, they will start to rot. If you leave these teeth in, the roots will possibly connect to nerves making it harder for the oral surgeon to remove them. If this happens, and you decide to remove them, the removal can cause permanent paralysis of your jaw, tongue and gums.

    Get them removed. It will be over before you know it because of they will give you anesthesia. Good Luck! Also, get all 4 removed at once. That way you won't have to worry about them anymore. Plus, some doctors will give you back you teeth if you want. I kept mine!!!

    The GOAT widsom teeth of Omnipotens Maximus Rex B4 y'all 🤬 's start that's dried blood and I'm assuming part of the socket they came out of. Those were my tops.

    The bottoms were like the ones in the X-ray. When I got those taken out, the dentist had to break them 🤬 apart some their was nothing left to give, besides where I went to didn't give the teeth to you.

    Yea I did, I had to be awake the whole time or my insurance wouldn't have covered it all. Smh, afterwards my mouth was sore and I had to keep a red Solo cup with me to spit blood in. It got about halfway full by the end of the day.

    I thought spitting gave you dry socket at least that what's my oral surgeon stressed and he said its one of the worse pains ever.

    I pulled one out with a fork, it was badly decayed and I was too broke to go to the dentist at the time. luckily the rest grew in straight.
