Q.

impacted wisdom tooth

Hi, i have an impacted wisdom tooth which gives pain on and off. It has really started to rot away and i have a terrible taste in my mouth. I can feel that the tooth moves slightly when pulled from side to side. Do you think that if left it will eventually fall out or is it possible to wiggle a wisdom tooth and get it out itself?

no it will almost definitely not just fall out- have it removed by a dentist
