Filling on Wisdom Tooth

User Level:

Posted by: emily.koh.18  (7 years ago)
Hi, I just had a filling done my lower wisdom tooth as it was decay. I did not to have it removed as i have fear of extraction. The dentist decided to fill it instead. He told me if the wisdom tooth still give me problem, the option will be extraction.

Now i do feel some sore and swelling around the wisdom tooth after the filling. The sentitivity came back after the 3rd day after the treatment.

I would like to ask if is it really i have to go thru the extraction. If i dont extract, what is the consequences.

Hope to hear from the experts.

Why didn't you listen to experts to start with? You wasted money and time filling a wisdom tooth. No, you don't have to have it extracted. You can just remain with a never-ending infection and have bone loss around your second molar, and possibly lose that valuable tooth.

And while you are at it, have ALL the other wisdom teeth out at the same time while you are young and the surgery is easy.

This is the only 1 not extracted. I am frightened about extraction and I need the courage.

I have enquired with my endodontist who had done my molar rct and he informed tat he could do rct for my wisdom tooth provided it is grown up. Do u think if I should seek for his 2nd opinion before I make a decision for extraction.
