If your wisdom teeth are not causing any symptoms or further complications, even if they’re impacted, then they would not need to be removed.
If there is a high risk of the nerves around your wisdom tooth to be managed, your dentist might recommend a coronectomy. A coronectomy is a procedure where the crown of the tooth is taken out but some of the wisdom tooth root is left in place. This procedure might reduce the risk of nerve damage.
Your dentist might also cut some of the gum tissue to remove and prevent food from being trapped. Trapped food can cause bacteria to grow and causes infection.
Your dentist would be able to advise on the best and most suitable treatment.
