Only a dentist!: The lack of formal training, education or experience in dentistry may cause complications that are much worse than a tooth problem. If you have a dental problem, call a dentist for a dental care.

Make arrangements: You'll have to figure out a way to see the dentist since extraction of wisdom teeth has never been and will never be a do it yourself project.

Rotting tooth: A rotting tooth is an infected tooth. Infection will spread, damaging other organ systems, causing severe consequences. A doctor (physician) does not have the training, experience, equipment to treat you. Another doctor (Dentist), preferably a specialist Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon must be seen immediately to properly treat your infection. Please make arrangements, now.

See below: See a dentist or oral surgeon of your choice to address all four third molars if possible. Obamacare still has some coverage for dental treatment if needed.

Usually a few hours: Let the anesthesia wear off, and eat soft foods on the other side. Nothing too hot, too cold, too spicy, or too crunchy.
