A 43-year-old member asked:

Impacted wisdom teeth, is it really worth it to have them removed if there is not pain?

They are of no use: If they are impacted then they are of no use. Ask your surgeon to evaluate the surrounding tissue and to advise you of your options.

It depends: If there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth or they are too close to the last molars they should be removed.
