Must the Tooth come out even if it hasn’t caused any problems yet?
Not all problems related to third molars are painful or visible. Damage can occur without you’re being aware of it. As wisdom teeth grow, their roots become longer, the teeth become more difficult to remove and complications become more likely. In addition, partially or totally impacted wisdom teeth are more likely to cause problems at later ages. They can cause extensive decay in the adjacent tooth, the second molar, since this area can be difficult to brush or floss. No one can predict when third molar complications will occur, but when they do, it can be more painful and the teeth more difficult to treat. It is estimated that about 85% of third molars will eventually need to be removed.
