Forums - General Discussion - Can wisdom teeth be saved, even if they have cavities? Read please.

Saved by using root canal , instead of pulling.

Possibly... but why? Wisdom teeth are generally unnecessary and can cause problems, so I don't know why you would want to go through a root canal which will be painful and expensive instead of just pulling it. My wisdom teeth were pulled and they didn't even have any cavities.



Just get it pulled.

Better long term.

I had root canal before.

I had root canal on one tooth that is not wisdom tooth.

Just like ActiBlizz gets the trash out of their system, so should you with your unneccessary wisdom teeth.

Ah, I remember my surgery. I had all four pulled in one sitting, only local anaesthesis, I was fully aware of everything. The top ones were easy, but the lower ones both layed on the side, so the dentist had to mill off the flesh, then break the teeth several times so he could take them out in pieces. I remember how he was prying and jamming and pushig and pulling like a madman, using his whole body weight, sweating and cursing. After the first two teeth he allowed me a five minute rest. Meanwhile the assistant had a little mercy with me and decided to wipe off all the blood from my face. Good times. 10/10, would do again.



Are wisdom teeth the smaller , and located last in the mouth? their not the big ones I need to chew?

They are the furthest teeth yes, they won’t grow on everyone though. I think, think (don’t take my word for it, look it up because I didn’t and I’m not a dentist) there’s four regular maulers per side and then behind those all the way at the back there’s the wisdom teeth. But like I said not everyone has them. I only have one (that’s at a 45 degree angle while the rest of my teeth are straight) in the top left, while I can feel the one at the top right beneath my gums. If I have the ones at the bottom they’re too far in to feel.

I had one of my wisdom teeth removed for the same reason - it just grew at 45 degree angle which puts the nearby tooth at high risk of cavity.



 

They are useless teeth all th way back in your mouth. If they damaged get them pulled out.

For some people wisdom teeth don't even appear an live under the gum.

I only had one pulled out. I scratched it but biting on a coke can ring the over time it cracked and decayed. Was in pain for 3 years before deciding to get it pulled out lol.

Was the best feeling getting it yanked on. Less painful the the hole in it lol.
