Going in to have the lower left wisdom tooth removed that is horizontal and appears to be resting on the nerve. Have not had any pain there since the 2nd molar had an abscess 7 years ago. Would rather have the OS take out the right one that is pressing against the 2nd molar on that side. Could more routine dental visits and better hygiene keep this one from having any further problems? Is it too close to the nerve to risk it?
