Last week, I had a couple of wisdom teeth removed. I knew these two would more than likely be questioned during the flight physical, so I had them popped out. After the pulling, the dentist told me he had to leave a small piece of the bottom tooth in because it wouldn't come out and it won't cause me any problems anyway, so there was no need to keep digging at it. I searched all over the forum and hadn't found any answers for this kind of situation. I know they will more than likely notice it when I get dental looked at, so is this something that they will make a fuss about or will they have the same mentality as my dentist? I, of course, could bring in a note from the dentist if needed. 

 

Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it.

They actually didn't do a dental check for me when I got my physical Which I thought was kind of weird. I was nervous about it too because I still need to have mine removed. But the physical got stamped and approved.
