Have any current pilots or USAFA cadets had their wisdom teeth removed as suggested in the Class of 2018 "Instructions to Appointees"? How big of a problem is this? How necessary is it to have them removed now? I took DS to his dentist today and was referred on to an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon for his opinion concerning wisdom teeth. We didn't get too many answers from the "regular" dentist except that they look like they will be no problem for the next few years. After that, who knows? Page 14 says, "If your civilian dentist has recommended you have your wisdom teeth removed, we strongly suggest you follow their advice. However, it would be best to have at least 6 weeks of healing between when the surgery is completed and when you arrive at the Academy." One problem: They are already scheduled through the end of June! DS wants to be a pilot and I want to help him make the right decision now. It just looks impossible to get this done at this point. If we have to, we will find somewhere that can hopefully fit him in. If anyone can shed light on this issue it would be greatly appreciated and it may help us make the best decision for him now.
