Wisdom tooth extraction requires an oral surgeon when the wisdom tooth is compacted, or when the area around the tooth is infected.

An infected wisdom tooth can definitely become dangerous to your health. Any infection could potentially be life threatening if not taken care of.

It depends how infected it is. If it is to infected & you don't remove it, it will start to rot.

it depends on the type of the surgery. if it is a wisdom teeth removal then they will To remove the wisdom tooth, your dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. He or she will separate the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone and then remove the tooth. Sometimes the dentist will cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove.

Of course it is easier to extract a visible tooth, however, any qualified oral surgeon could remove any tooth with confidence.

normally it does not. but when the tooth is attached to the bone ; has to cut it out and remove from bone.

They give you silly gas or knock out gas and then they pull it

If you have problems like irritation or pain or it obstructs movement then you should.The wisdom tooth create problems for many but only remove it if you face problem.

Try heat and/or ice packs. Why hasn't your dentist pulled this tooth for you??? Should be easy I would think; talk to your Dr and dentist.

Contact your dentist at once. They will recommend a course of treatment that may include anti-biotic. Do this NOW. That can be a serious infection.

yes, because bacteria can get down into the impacted tooth and cause it to become infected. I would suggest going to the dentist to get it checked out.

I got just one wisdom tooth when I was in my 20s. I'm in my 60s now and still have it.

The same toothpaste you have always used.

Wisdom tooth is the 3rd molars and that build in each quadrant of the mouth.

Yes, Because I personally would not want a infected tooth in my mouth. I would like to get that tooth out because I would not want to have to deal with that breath taking pain.

Normally a wisdom tooth is a third molar.

The second day after a wisdom tooth extraction, the wounds are still healing. Drinking alcohol is not recommended until the mouth has completely healed from the wisdom teeth extractions.

In cases where it is decayed beyond scope of saving then in teenagers who have 3rd molar still erupting this kind of method is employed.

While it is technically possible to kiss someone with an infected tooth, it is highly discouraged. The bacteria in that person's mouth could cause serious problems in people with compromised immune systems, or people who are already sick.

Wisdom teeth start to erupt at about 18 years of age. Thus the term wisdom teeth.

I'd follow the advice of the dentist, since the wisdom tooth can move forward after the second molar is removed.

is wisdom tooth extraction reuces mind

A wisdom tooth is one of the three molars. A molar is defined as a tooth with four cusps or points, and the wisdom tooth is simply the last molar to erupt and farthest back in the jaw.
