I'm 44 and my dentist is insisting that I have my bottom wisdom teeth out. They are not impacted but one is a little angled and the other is not able to fully come up being block by the jaw bone. They are so crowded. Anyway, as you can imagine i'm very scared about it. I had my top wisdom teeth out a couple of years ago but it was no big deal. The bottom ones will be a little more difficult so I always chickened out. However, now it has to be done, or so I'm told. I'm don't think I have really long roots or anything but I'm still very scared about the whole deal. I think my 2 greatest fears are pain and/or perm nerve damage. Can anyone here share their story or give me some peace of mind?
