You are normal: The thought of having wisdom teeth removed can be frightening. You should discuss your fear with your surgeon who can provide you with answers and sedation options to allow you to have a comfortable and safe procedure.

Oral surgeon advised I keep wisdom teeth. Why?

Wisdom teeth: The wisdom teeth that are free from disease and symptoms should not be operated on as there is no reliable research to suggest that this practice benefits patients.
