Hello doctor,

I have wisdom tooth. Is it necessary to remove it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your question and I can understand your concern. If it is giving you any sort of problem or giving you discomfort, you need to remove it immediately. There are chances of cyst formation in some cases too, if the impaction is not treated. You can delay it but my opinion is to get it removed.
