How to know if wisdom teeth really need to be removed
from The Huffington Post
Dr. Ruben Cohen writes, "There is ongoing debate regarding the need to extract wisdom teeth. Numerous scientific publications have aimed to clarify when it is medically appropriate to extract wisdom teeth, while many non-surgeons and patients have argued that there are too many unnecessary extractions. A recent article in The New York Times again raised the question of the value of wisdom teeth extraction. The author provided no clinical information about her daughter's case but used it as an example of yet another patient who was misled into thinking that 'her wisdom teeth had to come out, ASAP.'"
