    I got the same thing. Mine have been that way for almost 20 years. Since then, every dentist has told me how they, "have to come out, or they are going to do this or that." THe fact is that I have never had a wisdom tooth ache in my life and I wouldn't even know i had any if it weren't for the Xray's i've seen.

    I'm not having mine carved out unless there is a damned good reason.

    I can see mine are sideways, no need for an x-ray, and no pain.

    When I was 18, my dentist at the time told me I should have mine removed. I couldn't understand why, as they had grown in straight and painlessly. His reasoning was "you don't need them, and they'll cause you trouble someday". I figured he just needed the business, so I didn't go for it.

    Fast forward to last year (about 15 years later). Top right wisdom tooth broke in half. Went to the dentist, x-rays showed decay below the gumline on 3 out of the 4. Had to get 'em pulled. On a positive note, the procedure only took 15 minutes. The oral surgeon used gas and IV sedation. All I remember is waking up, and asking to see my teeth.

    I had one come in sideways and it eventually started to rot and broke in half.
    I had to have the rest of the tooth taken out piece by piece.

    All mine were also impacted and had minimal issue's but decided to have them out. I had insurance so it didn't cost much. One off the roots was growing around my jaw bone and had to be cut in 3 places.

    Yeah, mine are sideways aimed forwards. They've been slowly pushing my lower teeth forward and the canines have been poking out a little more than normal in this past 10-years... Dreading the inevitable yanking...

    Uncle Sam claimed 3 or mine. It was kind of disconcerting to hear the lower right one crack while the dentist was trying to pry it out. I'd say "never again", but then, that's a given.

    All was back to normal about 4 days later though.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Are your canine teeth longer than normal? Do you like to sleep in a coffin during the day? Are you really interested in bike lighting so you can ride in the dark ?

    Heh. Navy dentists were the worse dentists I've ever experienced. Not that non-armed forces dentists are any better but that was single handedly the worst experience I ever had. I will never ever go to a dentist unless it is absolutely killing me for more then a week.

    My dentist thought there would be enough room for mine to come in. He was mostly right, they came in but crowded my other teeth and pushed a couple out of alingment . I somehow was born with almost perfect teeth (sorry to rub it in to you brace wearers ) so my wisdom teeth kind of p****d me off. You can't tell my teeth are out of alingment now unless you look really closely so its not a big deal really. My wisdoms are in completely now and my teeth probably won't shift back so there really isn't any point in taking them out now.

    The way I look at it, if somebody doesn't like me because a few of my teeth aren't perfect they sure as hell are not going to like me for my actual imperfections now and in the future.

    I don't believe in wisdom teeth, and as such, I don't have any problems with them.

    I shouldn't be surprised as we are the same person but my part of your personality had the vampire teeth pulled when she got braces.

    Yeahs, I didn't go through the whole braces thing as a child. I have full dental with my current job but absolutely no motivation for the unncessary pain and discomfort when I am not having any problems. Add that to my prior statement

    Good choice. Braces were horrifying painful - and done before wisdom teeth come in is just silly.

    I pulled my own wisdom teeth when I was 17. All I needed were some pliers, a fifth of Jack, and some salt water to gargle with afterward. After I was done, I went and pulled out the neighbor's tractor that got stuck in a mud pit with my bare hands. Oh, and fought 3 mad grizzly bears. I killed two of them. I kept the 3rd alive and adopted it. It's now my pet. I named him Chuck.

    My dentist (the same one who had me get my wisdom teeth removed) said that a lot of people think the wisdom teeth crowd and push the other teeth forward, but in his experience even after the wisdom teeth are removed, your other teeth crowd forward anyway as you age.

    I had one sideways facing forward like you Danno, but in the x-ray they could see it was cutting into the root on the next tooth forward so they said yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh you better have that out.

    Dammit, so THAT's what happened to my grizzly bears. I've been wondering. I mean, you don't normally just LOSE three grizzly bears!

    Depends on the size of the Chuck and what season it is.
