That is actually a factor! :LOL: If your jaw is big enough there is usually no problem with the wisdom teeth. However, if it is smaller they can force the other teeth out of alignment, refuse to come in properly, become impacted, or decay because they are so far back they are hard to clean properly, all of which happened to me. In fact, one of my wisdom teeth never did come all the way in and I suffered from intermittent 'teething pains' until I was in my 50s, when it was finally removed because of decay.

I'm no fan of dentistry either, but if you trust your dentist on other matters, I'd listen to him here, or at the very least, get a second opinion from another dentist.
