    So I have a cavity that takes up 2/3 of my second molar and dentist was able to save the tooth, he did a root canal and will need a crown. However, dentist is telling me I should remove my adjacent wisdom tooth so that he can fit a crown on molar. He referred me to oral surgeon and I went. Surgeon agreed that I should remove it for same reasons dentist told me. I never heard of pulling out wisdom teeth in order to fit an adjacent crown. Does this make any sense? I have all my wisdom teeth and none are impacted but fully grown in. Don't they shave down the tooth that needs crown? Why do I need wisdom pulled? Should I seek 2nd opinion?
    Thanks in advance
