Please do not remove them now.  You are just 17 and growing.  The jawbone may grow to accommodate that molar.  Better get Laser pericoronal treatment done and take an antibiotic course.  You should be fine.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre anytime.  God bless u always.

i would suggest you to visit a dentist nearby and have the prescribed medications from the doctor for 5 days. Your pain would be gone. But if this occurs again and again, then do get the tooth removed.

Hello, I think its too early to decide for extraction, the third molars seem ok in the xray, and they hurt while erupting. you can easily consult some dentist locally and take medications for a few days. warm salt water rinses also help a lot.

Hi, Miss you haven't mentioned which side wisdom tooth is hurting you. It happens with most of the persons whose jaw growth is not in proportion to the size of the permanent teeth. You are too young and eruption of third Molars at this age usually causes severe pain and swelling. Not to worry a lot and have patience. Take medications prescribed by your Dentist. It will give you relief in few days. As I can see you have posted your OPG RADIOGRAPH. Your Dentist must have advised you appropriate treatment ( Removal of Overlying tissue / Extraction).

Getting it removed will be the best and the most logical treatment plan for a permanent relief..... all other modalities of treatment whether it is localised cleaning or any medications will give only a temporary relief.... Regards.....

Getting it removed would be the best option and to avoid any further occurrence of same problem. It might also give better prognosis with the remaining teeth once removed..
Hope you get well soon good luck..
