6.7 million wisdom teeth removed unnecessarily each year

6.7 million wisdom teeth removed unnecessarily each year
A report by dentist Jay Friedman in the American Journal of Public Health reveals that 67 percent or more of preventative wisdom teeth removals are unnecessary.
The article explains that most of the pain and illness surrounding wisdom teeth are not caused by the teeth themselves as one would expect, but rather the symptoms come from the surgery that removes the wisdom teeth.
Of the approximately 10,000,000 wisdom teeth removed each year in the United States, less than 20 extractions have proven medical indications which reference the requirement for extraction.
In general, the preventative extraction of wisdom teeth has become a public health disaster and is a clear case of medically caused injury. Driven by lies, the wisdom tooth extraction industry has turned our mouths into a financial goldmine.
It makes billions of dollars per year from performing these largely unnecessary surgeries.

The Faulty Thinking Behind Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The wisdom of our teeth is that Nature put them there for a reason (to chew our food well).
Without wisdom teeth, we lose important biting surfaces.
Lack of good biting and biting surfaces has been connected to poor health and mental impairments.

The medical theory goes that wisdom teeth are only to be removed if there are clear symptoms indicating they are doing more harm than good.
Yet this standard of care is rarely kept in practice. Rather, pain and infection are commonly used excuses to remove wisdom teeth when they erupt.
However, in many cases, minor treatments to the gum tissue are sufficient to deal with these problems and the wisdom teeth do not need to be extracted.
When wisdom teeth show no symptoms, they do not need to be extracted out of the fear based principal that there will be symptoms in the future.

Wisdom teeth are connected through acupuncture meridians to our small intestine and the front of our pituitary gland.
They are connected to our central nervous system through the trigeminal nerve, which explains why people could experience serious side effects from wisdom tooth removal.
