Thanks for your prompt answer.

I had both my bottom wisodm teeth out under general anaesthetic because they were very badly impacted years ago (I' m talking sometime in the 80' s!) I had this done in my dentist' s rooms and I know I had one of my top wisdom teeth out - the problem is which one? I dont know. I also cant remember when - it was also years ago - sometime during the 90' s I think! The stopane has definitely helped (as I thought it might - I find stopane very successful in treating pain - I cant take any form of anti-inflammatories due to to my having only 1 kidney - both my gp and urologist say its not worth the risk). I did finally have my root treatment done (if you remember my posting about it a while ago!) and have had no problems since. That was on the bottom left at the back. I have major problems with getting appointments with my dentist and have transport problems - he has leukemia and works ams only and only 1 Sat a month - for about 3hrs - those are the most difficult appointments to get for these ones you have to book something like 2-3 mths in advance! Can I leave it a while unless it obviously get substantially worse, i.e. see my dentist on about 21/8?

Thanks again.

I don't think leaving it till 21/8 will be too much of a problem, but ifit worsens at all see another dentist as an emergency
