I have terrible teeth and he says that I need wisdom teeth -- I need anything to attach a new bridge.
There are explanations about this:

Why do Some People Lack Wisdom Teeth - Why DoWhy Do

I've had so much dental work in my life and KNOW all from too much sugars/carbs in my childhood on and the so called great fluoride did not help me. I was born and raised in that stuff...lots of pros/cons on fluoride...we get too much overall from foods, faucets and toothpastes, etc. I avoid it as best I can and CUT way way back on sugars/carbs.
