"As a general rule, all impacted teeth must be removed unless and otherwise contraindicated."[edit]

This article states " As a general rule, all impacted teeth must be removed unless and otherwise contraindicated." I would like to point out that there is a significant body of evidence against this view: see cochrane review from 2012 [[1]]. I'd like to see the different views presented better, see also wisdom tooth#Treatment controversy for an example of what I mean... We still have several mainstream oral surgery textbooks that make statements like this, they should update themselves with modern evidence based medicine...Lesion (talk) 16:32, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
