Wisdom Teeth-BAD PROBLEMS
Hi! I am new to these boards, and I have joined now to get some info on my wisdom teeth problems.
Okay, my wisdom teeth have been growing for years now, very slowly. I had brace taken off approx. 5 years ago, during which time my wisdom teeth had started coming in.
Well, my stupid dentist told me that I could keep my wisdom teeth in because they were growing relatively straight (vertical), if I were to keep them clean enough and healthy. He DID NOT explain to me that widsom teeth are virtually IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean enough to stay healthy teeth.
Well, nowadays I am in agony because I have LARGE cavities in 3 out of 4 wisdom teeth (which I think the 4th is going to have a cavity soon). I am 23 and I've not had my mother's dental insurance for quite some time, and I have not been to the dentist until recently. I again went to a bad dentist, because they didn't explain to me my options about wisdom tooth extraction.
I have a question: my upper left wisdom tooth is hurting like hell all of a sudden, and I feel a tremendous amount of pressur on that side. It feels like my wisdom tooth is still growing, or pushing out of my gums, because MY BITE KEEPS CHANGING and a couple of days ago it changed to where I can't bite down normally, and I can hardly eat solid foods, because any pressure on that tooth makes me cringe. COULD MY WISDOM TEETH STILL BE GROWING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS?
Thank you anybody for any advice or personal experiences.
