I think if you need a BSSO, you can't escape it.

Not even the no name surgeons I saw suggested removing my fully erupted wisdom teeth when double jaw surgery was on the cards (eventually I had only upper jaw surgery).

Thank you BOTH for replying!

For clarity, the surgeons DID or did NOT want to remove your wisdom teeth during double jaw surgery? Did you ask if it was possible to do the surgery without removal? And, since you only had upper jaw surgery, what did you end up doing with your teeth?

I appreciate your responses!

I specifically asked whether removal was necessary, because I was terrified about every single aspect of surgery, including possibly lingual nerve damage (losing sense of taste, permanently painful tongue) from extracting wisdom teeth. Every surgeon I saw, even the most old school one, who was only a DDS, said that fully erupted wisdom teeth don't need extraction. I ended up having only upper jaw surgery and no extractions.
