I went for my regular check-up (and had a cracked tooth sorted ) with another dentist (who owns the practice) as mine has sadly left. I have never seen this man before.
I usually have a X-ray etc and the odd filling and then I'm sent away for a few months. Wisdom teeth I'm told are coming through but looking okay! Fine!
Well to my surprise today the 'new' dentist has told me that my wisdoms all need removing! I questioned why? and he told me that they are developing badly and they will give me some problems later on. So what about a X-ray? Not needed! Basically I was sent away with my note and to book an appointment to go back and have them removed.
Now I am confused. Before I am told they are fine... I have had no problems at all with pain and now he wants to remove them. My questions 1) Do I trust him and have them removed? 2) what about a X-ray? How can he tell how they are growing without one? 3) surely if I'm not experiencing any pain I should leave them?
I feel like going to another practice altogether. Any advice or help would be great as I'm feeling a little lost and I feel I don't trust him.
