Is This Dentist Trying to Steal from Me?
ok so I got one of the wisdom teeth (bottom right) that grows halfway (the tooth got covered in half with my gum). Therefore, sometimes food got stuck in between the gum and the wisdom tooth, causing pain and bleeding.
Went to see a dentist, who happens to be the oral surgeon and asked him to remove one of the wisdom teeth that causes problems. However, he insisted that I need to remove all of the wisdom teeth even though the other ones are fine and do not cause me any problems.
He said if I dont get all removed, they will cause more problems later on. He sounded like he just wanted me to get rid of all so I could pay him more $$$.
My questions are:
-Was the dentist genuine about my wisdom teeth, which I should get all removed?
-Or was he just trying to get me to remove all, so I can pay him more?
I have been in pain and really wanted to get rid of the tooth as soon as I could so I agreed and already booked an appointment for the wisdom teeth removal.
A friend of my told me I shouldn't do it at all and I should cancel the appointment. Any input will be appreciated.
