Advice for 30 year old female.Iu have an Impacted Lower Back Wisdom Tooth that is painful at times.
The X-ray shows no infection.
I would like any advice and opinion to a question please.
i feel like i have dented my Dentist Ego, As my Dentist will not refer me to an NHS Oral Surgeon and stated even if referral was sent to NHS it would be returned and refused, but i was not given that opportunity for the referral to be sent All this could be done in a third world country. I have read and been advised Dentist's would normaly refer patients to an Oral Surgeon for an Impacted Wisdom Tooth.As it is a Higher Risk procedure and at hospital there are much more staff and equipment in place for any unforseen circumstances or complications at the time of the Wisdon Tooth Extraction.
Also the Oral Surgeon (as it is and operation to the mouth) is doing a high volume of these each day. I asked to be referred to a more experienced professional for this procedure because of the implications of permanent nerve damage to the mouth and tongue due to the Wisdom Tooth being impacted.My last Dental Practice, a year ago wanted to refer me to an Oral Surgeon at NHS Hospital but as it wasn't too bad explained i could also wait as it had settled down .
Advice would be very helpful.
