I just recently got knocked down with a fever, swollen glands and swelling in my gums. The gum on the bottom left side of my mouth is infected with a bacteria and is swollen. It sucks because it hurts to eat and brush. I went to the dentist today to get advice on how to treat it and to get an antibiotic perscription.
Well before I left, the oral surgeon also told me that I should make appointments take all 4 wisdom teeth out. But the only wisdom tooth that is infecting me is the bottom left side of my mouth. The other 3 corners of my mouth is fine. The surgery is scheduled for May 10th. Should I take all 4 wisdom teeth out or should I only take out the tooth that is bothering me (it seems like all the dentist want is money anyways)? In other words, should I get surgery on the wisdom teeth that are not hurting me?
Also everyone has a different story on their experiences with their wisdom teeth. Care to share or give some advice?
