A 16-year-old female asked:

Can you still get your wisdom teeth out with a slight cough and minor throat soreness?

Probably: Typically oromaxillofacial surgeons remove wisdom teeth (DDS, DMD) and they are probably the ones to ask. I do not see a problem because of an upper respiratory infection. They could treat with antibiotics before hand if they are worried of bacterial infection.
