I'm a bit concerned about removing this tooth after I did some research. If my wisdom tooth is impacted but not causing any pain or other troubles, why do I have to have it removed (I supposed I should discuss this with my dentist)? The tooth I'm referring to is #32, and I'm having 31, 30, and 28 extracted at the same time they are supposed to remove the wisdom tooth. I'm hearing horror stories about lingual nerve damage and it's really freaking me out. Thanks!
