I Only Have One Wisdom Tooth
I have one wisdom tooth and it is impacted what can I expect while getting it out? I'm not being sedated either because its only one tooth.
Wisdom tooth: You can expect to feel pushing and pressure. You may also hear some noise. Since your tooth is impacted, the surgeon or dentist will probably have to take it out in pieces, so expect to hear some noise. You may also get some stitches to help the area heal. Be prepared to eat a soft diet for 24-48 hours. Sometimes due to having you mouth open you may experience some muscle stiffness of your jaw. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm age 27, have one wisdom tooth, looks to be horizontal in x-ray, upper jaw. Is nerve damage likely during extraction? Don't want to be numb forever
Likely no: Any surgery can potentially result in numbness, however, transient or longer lasting numbness following wisdom tooth removal is usually associated with the teeth removed from the lower jaw. Indefinite numbness in either jaw is a rare event and high risk cases can usually be determined beforehand. Talk to your surgeon about your concerns. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Both are normal: I believe in this context a "normal" tooth is one that is emerging correctly and needs to be removed (or pulled out) because there is not room in the mouth. An impacted one is one that is misaligned and will not emerge correctly and therefore is more difficult to extract. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My left bottom wisdom tooth is decayed and needs to be removed. Should the top one that is healthy be removed too?
It depends: If the upper wisdom tooth has no caries or gum disease and still hits a lower molar, you should be able to retain it. If it does not hit a lower tooth, then extraction is usually recommended. However, at age 70 it is unlikely to supererupt enough to become a problem. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can I eat claim chowder after getting my wisdom tooth pulled and if so can I eat on the side it got pulled on, because its pretty hard to chew on one?
Yes: I am assuming that you are stating that is difficult to chew exclusively on one side of your mouth. In general, it is most important to keep the extraction site clean and free of food debris as it is healing. Brush and rinse the site starting 24 hours after the tooth was removed. Be certain to maintain your postoperative appointments with the dentist who performed the procedure. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
