Junior member
Sep 22, 2014
Hello everyone, I am 24 years old and don't remember when the last time I went to the dentist was, it was several years back for a filling. Anyways, my wisdom teeth came in over the years and one never even showed up. I have one, top left that is decaying, can anyone tell me what the dentist will most likely do I'm case of an extraction?
Hi welcome to the forum :jump::jump::jump:

Having a wisdom tooth out is much like having any tooth removed. If you could manage to make an appointment with the dentist they would be able to explain what would be required. Everyone is different and some teeth need different procedures but until the dentist can have a look and maybe take an x ray he won't be able to tell.

Good luck :clover::clover::clover::butterfly:
