Within my mouth I have teeth that are pretty healthy. I have one wisdom tooth it is fully grown the others were removed 10 years ago. I am 39 should I remove it dentist think it is okay to stay?
There are plenty of reasons for removing wisdom teeth: They won't fit in your mouth and when they erupt they will change/damage your bite They are in a strange place and when they try to erupt they will place pressure on other teeth or other structures in your head/face/mouth The have become impacted, and cannot erupt, and possible can become infected and cause you a number of very painful conditions. A healthy wisdom tooth that fits into a healthy mouth probably doesn't need to go anywhere else. Happy smiling!
