Sometimes my patients say,Doc I was told I have to remove my wisdom teeth to avoid misaligned teeth.Most of us believe eruption force of the wisdom teeth in young adults can shift all the teeth forward and make them misaligned.Right?
I believed the same way,we were told the same…But according to the research conducted in the Melbourne university(well done Melbourne) this belief is not right.( email me for the reference if interested).
Every young adult can develop misaligned teeth regardless of the presence or absence of the wisdom teeth and each case should be assessed individually.So many other factors such as size of the jaws,size of the teeth,growth pattern and so on are involved in making the decision to remove the wisdom teeth early or leave them in.
Have a great week!
