Q.

Worried!

Hi Doc,
My wisdom teeth must be removed but are to scared for the pain afterwards. I had braces and my teeth are straight now but i am still wearing the "plaaitjie" in the night. My question is: If i dont remove my wisdom teeth, will all my teeth grow skew again???

there is a possiblilty of that happening depending on the position of the wisdom teeth in relation to your other teeth. if your orthodontist suggested they be removed I would definitely remove them
