Re: Wisdom tooth: to pull or not???
I wouldn't mess around with wisdom teeth.... they can become easily infected, and you don't want that to happen.
Go to your dentist or oral surgeon. Or at least call and ask their opinion. If it hurts, you most likely will need to get it pulled. When I called my dentist each of the four times I had a wisdom tooth pulled, I just told him that I was in pain and he told me to come in to get them pulled, just like that.
Definitely get it looked at. Regardless of if you'll be fine or not by Thanksgiving, the health of your body is more important. Good luck!
