Hi, all . . . about three weeks ago had both bottom right molars extracted and the sites are doing fine; however, I am now having some discomfort where my wisdom tooth would be if it had ever erupted which it has not. I will be 57 years old in a few days and am wondering if I am going to start cutting that tooth now that there is room with the other molars gone?
My dentist is gone now until mid-January on Christmas and New Year holiday (the only one practicing in that office).
Is it possible it could be that? I recall the hygienist a few months ago looking at my x-rays, pointing in that area with her pen and simply saying "something going on back there" and then walking away without explaining what.
I then asked the dentist about the wisdom tooth and he said, "that is the least of your worries right now".
