How reliable would dental hygienistss word be on wisdom teeth being able to stay in?

Apr 23, 2022
My dental hygienist told me that barring any complications like my wisdom teeth changing direction, I probably won’t have to get my top two taken out after she took a full x-ray to evaluate them (I don’t have the resulting X-ray on hand unfortunately). My dentist didn’t look at it because by then he had gone off to other patients, but would a dental hygienist know enough to confidently say this looking at an X-ray? She’s very competent, I’m just very worried about them getting taken out and the idea of it only being two puts me at ease more.
