I visited the dentist around last September for a bad tooth ache and they also checked my wisdom teeth which first started appearing around 2005/6 and the bottom right tooth has a hole in it.
Went to see a dental surgeon and he said he would remove all 4 wisdom teeth. I never got back to him, too scared to be put to sleep!
Since yesterday the wisdom tooth with the whole has been hurting, looks like theres loose gum going over it even covering the hole and any pressure on that bit of gum hurts heaps. If I move it over looks like the whole is even bigger than what it use to be an the tooth is rotting away.
So I am assuming I have no choice but to get it pulled out? What would happen if I don't? Can infections be prevented/treated without surgery??
If I went ahead to get it pulled out, do I have to be put asleep??? The only thing I'm worried about being awake is tha t my mouth will get real dry from being open and I won't be able to take it or I'll have a need to swallo my saliva at times but being put to sleep scares me quite a bit.
If I can be awake, would a dentist let me have my ipod haha??
