Should i remove my wisdom tooth?!PLEASE help!
Hi everyone! I have a surgery coming up on Tuesday and I'm so scared that i don't know if I'm gonna do it! I am a female, 27 years old. I have a partially erupted wisdom tooth on my right lower side. I've had a really bad infection so I was treated with antybiotics. After that I had a removal of gum flap (operculectomy). I was going abroad and didn't have time to go to surgeon to have it extracted. The problem is that the tooth's roots are very close to nerve, almost touching it. I'm so scared of nerve damage and that's the reason why I'm posting here... I want to become pregnant and I've heard that hormones make your gums prone to infections during that time... The tooth is kept clean but a small part is still covered with gum ( well, it's the end of my jaw anyway). A small part of it needs to be drilled. I apreciate your advise and time to read my post.
