Removing your wisdom teeth might not be a smart move

 
In April, 17-year-old Jenny Olenick was having her wisdom teeth removed when she died due to lack of oxygen while under anesthesia. Just last week, another teen was found dead in his bed the day after his third molars were taken out.

 

The procedure is performed on 5 million Americans every year. And while parents and teens have to sign the standard release to go under anesthesia, the safety and importance of the out-patient surgery itself is being called into question.

 

The extraction causes roughly 11,000 complications annually, ranging from permanent nerve damage to brain tissue infections, ABC News reports. And still the surgery is strongly recommended by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons to “prevent future problems.”

 

In reality, these future problems affect only 12 percent of those with impacted wisdom teeth. That’s the same exact chance you could come down with appendicitis. And as far as we know, girls aren’t handing over their appendices when they hit their teen years. Hmm…

 

Have you had your wisdom teeth removed, babes? Will you?
