I’ve 4 wisdom teeth. Two of them on the lower side are growing horizontally.
Horizontally impacted below the gums.
One dentist advised against taking them out as it was near a nerve.... as shown in an X-ray
I’ve had intermittent pain as I clench my teeth a lot and tend to grind them.
So I suppose when I’m Super anxious I end up hurting my teeth this way.
Thing is, the dentist was really distracted when he was talking to me and seemed to be in a hurry to get rid of me after his female colleague came (I was the last patient) so I am doubting his opinion.
Worst part is that I am really anxious about pain and blood and don’t know if I should pursue this and get a second opinion.
Truth be told, I am terrified of needles.
I had a heart Attack a couple of years ago and my fear of needles blood and Hospitals(not to mention it made my Anxiety issues worst) started there.
Has anyone out there have had the same situation with the teeth ? And if so did you take. The risk to take them out? Any feedback would be very helpful.
