Why should i get my wisdom teeth removed thinking it may cause cavities in future ?
Most people get their wisdom teeth removed because there isn't enough room in their jaw for those teeth to come in without causing problems of spacing and alignment with other teeth, not because of cavities.
If you brush and floss properly, cavities aren't a problem.
You only really need to have your wisdom teeth removed it if is causing a problem in terms of the alignment of your teeth, or if it is causing you great pain.
As said above, wisdom teeth should not be the cause of cavities or decay unless you are not taking care of your teeth properly.
When I was a dental student we were taught to remove wisdom teeth if it was likely that they would cause problems in the future. Now, much more sensibly, we leave them in place unless they are causing repeated or constant problems. One thing wisdom teeth DON'T do is cause tooth decay.
Crowded, overlapping teeth can make it difficult to clean properly, increasing the likelihood of gum trouble and tooth decay but, contrary to common belief, wisdom teeth are usually NOT responsible for crowding elsewhere in the mouth.
I hope this helps.

Do you have wisdom teeth?I am in the process and it hurts. My dentist has told me to get them removed and I don't want to go through all that. Is there a way out, or I will have to get them removed?
