This decision definitely extends from my circumcision- no one is going to remove any healthy body part from me ever again, no matter how God damn hard they try to push it.
Way to go, mine are crooked, but they are teeth that will replace others when needed.

Hey guys!



The next hour is the moment of truth, or failure, for my dentist. Im in the waiting room right now and I guess, out of curiosity im going to post his reaction to whatever the results of my oral xrays are. There is no way I'm consenting to a removal. If they come in and then have problems, I guess they will have to go. But what im curious about, is his attitude towards "preventative" surgery. Will he try to push an unnecessary procedure, initially, or say, "hmm, well they look Ok so far, I don't see any reason for surgery." I believe his reaction wil speak volumes about whether he puts patient wellbeing over cash...

In case anyone is curious, ill post. Wish me luck, lol

Exclamation Re: Strange Wisdom tooth removal EXPLOSION...?

Hey guys.



Im only continuing to post about teeth, because it resonates deeply with me and exposing medical "cash cows," in case anyone is wondering why this keeps popping up on a foreskin restoration site

That... Was... Obscene....

My oral specialist, or whatever its called (she cleans teeth before the dentist) asked in the waiting room right off the bat, WITHOUT xrays, ..."and... Ah yes, had he had the wisdom teeth extracted yet?" For the next 20 minutes, I deflected attempt after attempt, from both the nurse and dentist to try to litterally SCARE me into having them pulled. I am not exaggerating here, at one point, the dentist actually told me there was a risk of DEATH if I wait to have them pulled!! Death? ...really? I quickly fired back, "what had caused this, and how often?" The nerve of his reply... "well, technically its an incalculably SMALL percentage, and its from the anestetic, but.. Er... Um... Trust me, it Happens!! I remember telling these people NO, over 5 times. And the condition of my teeth? The bottom ones are crooked, but I was told they wouldn't even come in. I have had litterally ZERO problems with them, and my top ones are coming in at a relatively good angle. These people would not relent, and I was actually quite surprised that they acted this way.

If I have problems later on, ill have them removed. No problem.

Damnit, NOT BEFORE.

Sounds like just another fearmongering sales pitch to enhance the dentist's bottom line. Oh yes, let's take a big risk to avoid a small one. Having wisdom teeth pulled out isn't a risk-free procedure either, with the possibility of nerve damage, infection, etc. Risk of death.....*facepalm* I had a wisdom tooth taken out because there was a cavity that had gone way below the gumline, believe me that was not fun.

The automotive industry has its cash cows too, the biggest one is the 3000 mile oil change. Replacing factory shocks and struts at 50,000 miles is another one, I've seen cars with more than double that mileage and the suspension is almost as stiff as when it was new.

There are appreciable risks from having them surgically extracted also, including permanent nerve damage which leads to numbness and dribbling.

I'm a strong advocate of keeping wisdom teeth - otherwise known as our third molars - and all of our body parts, for that matter.

I'm also a strong advocate of good nutrition that promotes the proper bone and jaw development. A well-formed skull has wide dental arches that accommodate all 32 healthy teeth in proper alignment. A well-formed skull has properly formed eyesockets that accommodate eyesballs that are neither near-sighted nor far-sighted.

My father's generation had raw, unpasteurized milk straight from the dairy farm. Dad had beautiful teeth, and he had keen eyesight. My generation had food processed under US FDA/USDA guidelines. These "devitalized, displacing foods of modern commerce" - as Dr. Weston A. Price, a 1930's dentist-turned-nutritionist, put it - have left me and members of my generation with narrowed dental arches, crowded rotten teeth, and poor eyesight.

This Forum has visited the wisdom tooth issue before, in the thread "Removing Wisdom Teeth?"
I made 3 extensive posts to the thread, which can be found here:

I have always had a huge phobia against having my wisdom teeth removed. Among the gems from my mother was a comment complaining that she felt 'something was missing' when she had hers out in her fifties.

Obviously, nothing to the rage that I felt when I was ten and my dentist recommend a brace to correct my teeth and she commented that 'we should leave them the way God intended'.

All I have to say is thank god they can't perform this surgery on infants, or it might be a "routine" thing... that's even to horrific to think about...

quick note: Does anyone know if parents can actually FORCE this surgery on their kids if their under 18? because in this article I just read it said some 14 year old died due to this harsh surgery. A 14 year old should not be having their wisdom teeth removed... Let alone old enough to make that kind of dicision.


- "permanent nerve damage can affect the tongue, lips, and cheeks. In fact, more than 11,000 people every year sustain such permanent nerve damage following wisdom tooth extraction."

- "Third-molar surgery is a multibillion-dollar industry that generates significant income for the dental profession" RING ANY BELLS?


- "Teens often have their wisdom teeth removed. But there's no evidence this painful procedure prevents future trouble. RING ANY BELLS?

Here's the article talking about teenagers dieing from this... http://www.naturalnews.com/034496_wi...eath_risk.html

I had a similar reaction. Not so much anger, just extreme suspicion. I called the oral surgeon on his shit, got him to engage me in a conversation of "why" instead of just the lecture on "how" he was giving me. He admitted it wasn't necessary and I'd be okay. "But there could be infections later in life" gee, I've heard that one before. Basically, he showed me my partially impacted wisdom teeth and said "if these grow more they'll cause problems" and I asked "but didn't you just say they are fully grown based on the X-rays from the last three years?" and he was like "yeah."

Wisdom teeth can cause problems, moreso than foreskins, but frankly their removal is an unnecessarily prescribed invasive procedure that's normalized in our culture as a necessary prophylactic, and encouraged by our for-profit healthcare models, and not performed with the same frequency in other countries where they have incentive to perform cost effective medicine.

It's been four years since then, I am fine.

Fortunately, I've found many dentists are good about this (at least, better than doctors are about circ). You ask around for a second opinion enough and generally you'll hear some sensible information. Really only if there are signs of incisor crowding or caries in the impacted tooth is the procedure actually necessary. It's just that most people don't even think to question so they just continue this "get it out of the way early" mentality. And the dentist gets to pad the bill. It's almost a headless conspiracy.

Uhh don't give me another thing to worry about.

I got my wisdom teeth removed. On the xray it was clear... Well only one of them was very crooked.. it look like it would grow into the other tooth as the angle was wrong. But I'm not sure if it would have straightened itself???


Anyway, the one thing related to this that bothers me as much as my circ was the fact I had orthodontic braces. It restricted the growth of my upper cheek bones and my jaw bones, giving me a smaller face. This is something that should not be applied to someone who is still growing, only adults.

But guess what, another person decided to be deceitful and harm my body for money.

I fucking hate people.
