Q.

Wisdom teeth

Hi doctor

I' m 23 yrs old, female and I think my wisdome teeth are only starting to come out now. When is the best time to have them taken out? At this stage it is only one that has started to come out. I felt a tiny bone sticking out so it must be my wisdom teeth.

Thanks.

if you do not feel any pain, it is not necessary to have them removed.

Forgot to ask how much it will cost if not on medical aid. I know each doctor varies etc.
