My dentist suggested that I should get my wisdom tooth extracted as it is causing infection around it . But I'm afraid of the pain . is there any ways in which it can be treated without extraction of the tooth? Kindly help

If there is infection around he wisdom tooth and your dentist suggested to get it removed then you need not worry about that. Dentist will take care of you and will not give you much discomfort.
Trust the dentist and the procedure and go ahead.

If your wisdom tooth is getting infected and causing you problems ideally you should get it removed.This infection could spread to adjacent areas and cause swelling and pus.Wisdom tooth removal is a very minor surgical procedure done under local anaesthesia .Once anaesthesia is given u will not feel anything during extraction.After extraction u will be OK in a day or two.For pain u will be given medications.So be strong don't worry and get the tooth extracted.All the best!
Wisdom tooth or third molar erupt at an age when jaw growth is complete. Meaning the jaw has deficiency of space. My strong opnion would be to remove the tooth rather than having recurrent problems. Its an opnion not just as a dentist, but having experienced similar problem myself.
