Wisdom tooth LARGE cavity. SEVERE pain similar to when my other wisdom tooth hurt, which was pushing on a damaged nerve before extraction. 2nd molar was removed years ago to give current wisdom tooth room to grow. Dentist appt next week. EXTRACTION??
Speak with DDS. Let the dentist evaluate the tooth prior to extraction/implant. Was the third molar orthodontically moved into the second molar space to avoid open contacts? There are many variables, which need the dentist's expertise for long term success.
Emergency. First, if you are truly in severe pain & can't get a dental appointment until next week, see if your dentist can get you in sooner. If it were me and he/she couldn't I certainly would find another dentist, at least for this emergency. Large cavity? when was your last dental visit? perhaps you need to go more often. What is best treatment requires exam and x-rays which we can't do over the internet.
