is it safe? well yeah, probably, but I still don't want to do it.

My son (age 20) has one impacted and one soon-to-be-impacted bottom wisdom tooth so they need to come out. His top wisdom teeth have come in fine. Dentist recommends pulling all four. Why can't he keep his top teeth?

Extracting Wisdom

Extracting Wisdom: I've been putting it dodging it for years, but it's looking (and feeling) like I'm going to have to get my wisdom teeth pulled. I do have insurance, but I have to go to a specific provider - a provider I've never actually been to before. Any advice on questions I should ask or things I should look for? Is one oral surgeon as good as another or should I shop around and/or pay extra if needed?
