58 years and I have all of mine. Better than all my other molars and my dentist constantly wants to remove one. No, I say it still works.
64 here, and I also have all my wisdom teeth, but they came in straight. My 20 year old son, however, had his removed because they were coming in crooked.
Kept mine....against ten different dentists and their desires. I was in the Air Force, and they kept talking about this twice a year for at least the first fifteen years of service I did. The key to this....is that you absolutely have to get to the teeth and clean them.
I don’t feel any discomfort, and my dentist cannot detect any harm, but he gives me these quizzical looks and keeps asking me when do I want my wisdom teeth removed. And I still say no.
Bingo. It was a dental fad. Molars are provided for a biological reason. Until such time as they no longer appear, eff the dentists. Maybe that’s why their supposed suicide rate is so high—lack of molars to pull.
