Wisdom teeth

What will happen if I do not get my wisdom teeth removed. I had an appointment 2 years ago a chicken out. Can they just stay in forever?

Hello Inspired!

As long as they are not infected or impacted, there's nothing to worry about. Just make sure to keep them clean because wisdom teeth are hard to reach when brushing and you could easily get cavities in them.

Hi there!

If you leave malpositioned or impacted wisdom teeth in place, you might suffer from dental caries or infection of the surrounding gum tissue.
