It depends on how strong the tooth is. If it's decayed to the point of being weak and fragile, it might be best to surgically remove it.

If one has a big hole in an adult wisdom tooth can it be pulled or does it have to be surgically removed?

It depends on the tooth and how it is in your mouth. Some wisdom teeth can be removed without surgery and some need surgery. The hole doesn't really affect needing surgery or not. Wisdom teeth, if bothersome, usually are pulled. Most dentists prefer you see an oral surgeon just in case their should be any problems (generally there isn't.) Just a little info as to why we have to put up with these miserable little additions in our mouth, here is why some people have them: As you know we have changed with evolution, and thousands of years ago we had wider jaws, and needed more teeth. As our faces and bodies slimmed down to suit our generations to come, and unfortunately, for some, we have been blessed with wisdom teeth. They are useless and if they bother you in any way (even very sore gums back in your jaw ... this means the wisdom tooth is not quite coming through) it is best to have them removed. Good luck Marcy
