Boy, thats a tough one. Its funny that the oral surgeon would say 'lets hope' you are ok! Lets hope doesnt mean much when you are left with a possibility of permanent nerve damage. This could mean a loss of feeling to your cheek and tongue. Any extraction of the lower molars poses a risk of nerve damage, but you know that this is a real possibility for you. Consider it carefully. Like Ann said, get another opinion. There are people that keep partially impacted teeth. Some do ok. Its not always a terrible thing. Would they do better without them? Maybe, but permanent loss of feeling would be a heck of alot more to deal with then extra time spent to keep it clean.
