Leave my wisdom teeth alone!
If you’re over the age of 18, you’ve probably had your wisdom teeth removed. You’ve almost certainly been told by your dentist that you MUST have them removed.
What your dentist WON’T tell you is that there’s a strong chance you’ll never develop any complications if you keep them. He’ll refer you to an oral surgeon who will charge you a couple of thousand dollars to remove them. If you ask any questions, he’ll try and scare you into compliance– “if you don’t take care of this now you could develop acute gingrophilblablablabla…”. He’s FULL of SHIT! Yes, many people do need to lose their wisdom teeth. But MANY MORE DON’T! Why not wait and see? Do we preemptively remove our appendixes? What about our tonsils? So what’s so special about the wisdom teeth? Obviously we at RagingTantrum.com are not medically trained, don’t take our word for it! Read what the British Medical Journal found, courtesy of Naturalnews.com. Excerpt:
In a groundbreaking report from the British Medical Journal, researchers who poured over thousands of studies detailing the efficacy of medical and dental procedures have concluded that many popular surgical procedures are completely worthless. Among those is one of the most common procedures performed by your dentist: the removal of so-called “impacted” wisdom teeth. According to the BMJ, this procedure may actually do more harm than good.
The author goes on to assert that “Your dentist is full of bunk” and suggests ignoring his advice. It’s an entertaining and informative piece– check it out.
And if you still have your wisdom teeth and they’re not bothering you, tell your dentist to keep his money-grubbing paws off of them!
