Don’t Ignore Impacted Wisdom Teeth!

Dr. Jordan Pettigrew

“….but Dr. Pettigrew the wisdom teeth don’t hurt, I think I’m going to leave them for now”……

I have heard this many time and this can be the result……..The wisdom tooth sits on the back root of the healthy second molar and will actually dissolve the root of the good tooth over time.  This results in the need to have both teeth removed.  If your dentist recommends  wisdom tooth extraction don’t ignore it or this could be the result.
