Hello Mam, its best to get the wisdom tooth surgically extracted to avoid future pain and discomfort. But plz get it done by a maxillofacial surgeon.

Hello, Mam,If the wisdom tooth does not have enough space to erupt or if it is symptomatic,then it is advised to get it removed. Visit a maxillo-facial surgeon to get the procedure done. Regards Dr Suman Makam

Hi Third molar is always a tricky thing. If your opposing tooth to third molar is placed fine then probably you can wait for it to erupt further provided there is space for the same . If not then it is in best interest to get it removed Regards

Hello mam ,Regarding your wisdom teeth problem first a x ray has to be removed & if pain is there frequently then you should undergo tooth removal after a thorough x ray evaluation as it might require surgery .

As suggested by fellow dentists pls do get a full mouth X-ray (opg) when u can .This X-ray will help to determine the position of the wisdom tooth .If position is normal and showing signs of eruption then ,it will erupt normally .But in majority of cases it will be impacted that is not enough space for it to erupt ,in such a case it's best to consider extraction.This will give to permanent relief .All the best

Mam first of all u shd. post an x ray , so that an analytical study can be done . If ur dentist is  insisting for removal of the tooth than any competent dentist or maxillofacial surgeon can do the procedure.
