Mid invisalign - Wisdom tooth removal
I have started my invisalign treatment 4 months ago (for deep bite and overcrowding) and now my dentist is asking me to surgically remove all 4 wisdom tooth. Is it absolutely necessary? I feel no pain and rather wasn't even aware of the presence of them until I got my OPG scan done.
