Myths are things that can’t be escaped from. Sometimes when you hear one or read about one, the details can be so convincing that it’s easy to believe it as truth. What’s important is to always keep an open mind about things in general, but to question the validity of information you acquire; not everything you read (especially online) is true.
With that being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if the words you are currently reading is being taken with a grain of salt right now! Always fact check if you’re unsure of something.
Wisdom teeth are something that people always question; what purpose do they serve? If they don’t come in, am I not a wise person? Here are some common wisdom teeth myths that have been busted.
Q: Is wisdom teeth extraction dangerous?
A: Dentists have the procedure down pat, so any risk that is associated with teeth extractions is minimal.
Q: Does everyone get wisdom teeth?
A: Some people actually never develop wisdom teeth and that’s perfectly normal! It has no actual affect on your wisdom.
If you ever have questions or concerns related to your wisdom teeth (or any of your teeth or mouth issues in general) consult with your local Ottawa dental professional.
