Is official advice from NHS about NOT pulling out wisdom teeth doing more harm than good?

  • Melody Barzin has suffered dental problems due to extractions guidelines
  • Three years ago, her wisdom teeth started coming through 
  • Her dentist noticed one of was impacted and said it needed extracting
  • But he didn't refer her to an oral surgeon because there was no decay 
  • The 24-year-old, from London, developed an intensely painful infection
  • She's now having two wisdom teeth removed and will need a root canal
