IMPACTED WISDOM TEETH

Hi

My bottom, left wisdom tooth is impacted (as per x-ray) and has never worried me before.

In the past week, my left eye is sore and irritable and the left side of my neck into my shoulder is taught and full of muscular pain. The gum itself is not sore.

Is it time to get this tooth extracted?

eye pain is not usually related to a lower impacted tooth.
See your GP first before seeing a dentist
