  • There’s a possibility of having 32 teeth in your mouth if everything works out optimally. That’s not usually the case. Quite often, your wisdom teeth are impacted which could mean one or more of these teeth are growing at an angle towards another tooth or the back of the mouth. If that’s the case and you do nothing about it, you risk having your other back molars crowded and pushing the front ones out of alignment too.
  • Having your wisdom teeth out doesn’t mean your other teeth won’t move over time. In fact, studies have shown there’s a possibility your other teeth will shift even with these back molars gone.
  • One of the other myths is that these wisdom teeth are set aside at the back of your jaw. Often these teeth grow in such a way, they can harm the development of other back molars.
