Perhaps this is a question for "David," who writes on this list and who seems to be a professional, or at least quite knowledgeable.
But [as a non-medical person] I am wondering
1) if 2 of yr wisdom teeth are coming in as they should, why do you need all 4 removed? why not just the 2 with problems?
2) what's the rush? you're only 16.......why do these 2 need to be pulled Now, just as the school year begins? Is there any urgency? If there are no compelling medical reasons, why couldn't this operation be done next summer -- or when you
are 20 and your mouth has developed more?
Can you get a second opinion from another oral surgeon?
