I know everyone is different, but how uncomfortable is it to get an impacted wisdom tooth removed while awake? Is it do-able?
I have removed: Wisdom teeth for 32 years and can say that removal with local anesthic only is "do-able". However, many patients prefer sedation or general anesthesia for this surgery and some do not. The discomfort during the surgery should be zero either way. Discus these options with your surgeon and decide the best course for your specific situation. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

There must be an explanation given somewhere in the consultation. It would be very odd if there wasn't any thoughts given. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

$200 - $1000: The cost depends on how difficult the tooth will be to extract. If the tooth has erupted, it will cost less to extract than if it is still under the gums.

I have an impacted wisdom tooth and at the moment can't go to the dentist. What can I take for relief?
Impacted tooth: Sounds like you waited too long and it has finally caught up to you. You might get some relief from an antibiotic and anti inflammatory although I've seen multiple infected teeth not respond to simple antibiotics. These infections are often of a type that nothing shy of extraction gets you much relief. Incision and drainage can help but you'll have to see a doctor anyways. Sorry. Read more
