I’ve got four impacted wisdom teeth. I was thinking of getting them removed, but right now they are not bothering. I’ve just graduated college and don’t have a lot of money. If they’re not bothering me, is it better to wait until I have more money?

The older you get, the more complicated and risk of complications you have with wisdom teeth extractions. If they are impacted I really recommend you get them out. Your risk of complications double about every five years.
If it is a matter of affording it alone, you can speak with your dentist about setting up a payment plan. There are also no-interest medical cards such as care credit.
