I still have mine at 56 years age, no one has suggested any removal. My daughter just had 3 out and does not have the fourth one there at all! Only one Needed to come out, but they took the other 2, just in case....Seemed like a bit of money making, but we did it anyway.

My dentist tried to have me remove them when I was younger than 40, but I didn't do it. Now they say it is much harder to heal if they should need to come out. So far I am lucky.

Refused to have mine removed as a kid due to fear and now at 60 have had thousands of $ to have them removed for problems. Side effects of facial numbness from removing them form thinning bone. Get them out when young!

Nasty things. I remember when I had mine removed. I was down and out for a week.
