Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Should They Stay or Go? (Dentist survey video)

Dentists don’t always agree on what to do about impacted wisdom teeth.

In this survey, one in five dentist respondents say that impacted wisdom teeth always need to be removed. Remarkably, the same number – one dentist in five – tend to opposed impacted wisdom tooth removal.

When it comes to wisdom tooth extraction, 70% of dentists think general practitioners are qualified to remove all or most impacted wisdom teeth, while 30% would prefer to see oral surgeons doing these extractions.

Jim Du Molin and Julie Frey discuss dentists’ thoughts on removing impacted wisdom teeth:

“Family dentists are ideally suited to remove wisdom teeth because they see patients every six months. This way, they can remove the teeth at the ideal time,” suggested a Louisiana dentist. “Patients often put off referrals to specialist and therefore the teeth become more difficult to remove. I am a family dentist and I remove approximately 8 complete bony impacted wisdom teeth per day.”

“I am a GP and have extracted over 20,000 impacted wisdom teeth in my 30 year career so far. There really no impactions that I come across that I don’t feel qualified to tackle,” said an Arizona dentist.

“If you have any doubt of your capability to handle that specific extraction, DON’T DO IT!” cautioned a Florida dentist.
