Wisdom tooth

Hi, I am having pain on my wisdom tooth since last 3-4 days. I got the x-ray for that and the tooth is not growing properly and is pushing against the last tooth. The wisdom tooth is still inside the gums and is not visible. Wanted to know if extraction of tooth is necessary or there are other measures available ? If yes then what are the approximate charges for that?

Now a days it is very common people experiencing this problem. The permanent solution is the extraction. According to your statement the procedure will be minor surgical one. Better get it done by a Maxillofacial surgeon. Money ya it varies but dont keep money as first thing. Get it done by a specialist since sometimes minor complications are involved.

The only option available is to remove the wisdom tooth cos any kind of temporary measure will not solve your problem permanently.  if u take any medicines or something that will resolve for few days or months.  Again the pain in wisdom tooth will start.. so it's better to remove it & get relief permanently

It is always better to get wisdom tooth extracted if it is not erupting in proper place and position as it can cause pain and damage to the adjoining tooth.  It would require a minor surgical process and charges vary according to the severity of the procedure. .

If wisdom tooth is causing pain and x ray showing that it is pushing adjacent tooth,treatment is to go for complete removal of tooth from a experienced oral surgeon. Treatment charges vary from clinic to clinic.

Hi,  if there is a pain because of wisdom tooth,  and if Xray shows it completely that its not growing in favourable path, then the best solution would be to get it extracted.  Wisdom tooth may or may not see in your mouth,  but a   professional dentist can  extract it.  About charges,  it may range from 4-6k according to conditions,  and always Remember that all the dental treatment charges may vary as per the case. You can consult nearby dentist.

Hi,  if the wisdom tooth is not in favorable  position, then it is always better to get the tooth extracted because first thing there could be infection often, second thing, the unfavorable position may make the other tooth adjacent to it also vulnerable for the caries.  The tooth is not in favorable position just because there is not enough space in the jaw.
