Q.

Wisdom extraction need 2 know

Hi,
My right bottom wisdom is pushing up under my other tooth. It isn''t painful but I can feel it there. My dentist sort of shouted at me that I didn''t get the wosdom extracted 2 years ago like he advised. The thing is I am scared of the pain afterwards.
I have a baby to care for, an exam to study for and moving house all in August. Will I manage the pain and doing all of these...Not sure how you can comare the pain of this operation for me....what ae the consequences of just leaving it be?
Tx

If there is no pain it is not necessary to remove the tooth unless there is decay being caused by the position of the tooth.
If it needs to be extracted you can wait until after you move.
