The opinion of the dentist would have been based on the clinical examination and the X-rays, both of which are unavailable to those on the discussion platform here.... my advice would be to go for removal of the third molar as advised.... surgery is not always a negotiable option and please get rid of your apprehensions by a proper discussion with your dentist, because any surgery these days will be completely painless.... medications can provide some temporary relief but the problem will reoccur if a definite treatment is not done in time....
Regards .....

If I had the x-rays with me I would advise u correctly...  But I will tell u an interesting story...  My wife had a mesioangular third molar partially impacted..  She was scared of the surgical extraction...  what I did was completely out of the box thinking and I did a root canal therapy in her impacted tooth 27 years back...  She is still eating with it..  Ofcourse her root canal therapy was followed by a proper crown..
Thankfully it has worked wonders and after that day I have treated numerous partially impacted mesioangular third molars with root canal therapy...  It's much more difficult to do root canal in such teeth,  but a good clinician can do justice....  Plz send me ur x-rays and feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre.  God bless u.
