While most of us have had our wisdom teeth removed and they are long gone some of us have not. Usually, we do whatever our dentist says as well as our doctors, have you ever taken the time to research something like wisdom teeth and the removal of them?
According to dentists wisdom teeth are unneeded and that they inconveniently crowd our mouths, this is not true. Wisdom teeth are also known as the third molars. They are the teeth furthest back in our mouths. Generally, they grow in when we are in our late teen years or early twenties. Out of the ten million wisdom teeth extractions done here in America, each year only twenty of them are shown to be required. This procedure is a very big money maker for the dental industry. Wisdom teeth are not causing all of the health issues they want you to think they are.
Why do we have wisdom teeth?
Well, as people our teeth are very important in general. Wisdom teeth themselves are connected according to the acupuncture meridians to our small intestine and the front of our pituitary gland. At least forty-six percent of our motor and sensory nerves in our brain’s cortex are linked to our mouths and faces. So, when any tooth is removed we are breaking the meridian that streams through that tooth. Wisdom teeth extractions themselves can actually be quite dangerous as well.
Close to 175,000 individuals have had permanent numbness due to nerve damage caused during this procedure. While this is a common surgery it is something we should try to avoid. Wisdom tooth extraction can even include major damages as drastic as sudden death. I do not recommend getting your wisdom teeth removed unless it is something that absolutely has to happen without a doubt.
