Hey, since yesterday night I have a terrible pain on my upper left side in the mouth. It's due to a wisdom tooth that is growing. The pain is so intense that I'm starting to think that maybe the lower wisdom tooth is also growing and causes me pain. My head hurts (the left side of it). So I've read on the Internet that some operations turn bad and I could stay facially paralysed for my whole life if the dentist hurt some nerve. I've read what a lot of people went through, after the operation turned bad. Further I'm starting the first week of the term and I really need to study. I've been studying but the pain is really bothering me now. I have a courseload of 28 hours/week so I could eventually be operated only from next Friday. I just wonder if the pain will decrease, because I don't see myself suffering that much (night is terrible) for so long. Also, I have 0 confidence with my dentist for several reasons. But I wouldn't mind to get rid of this hurting tooth! I'm just scared about the operation and its consequences. A little question maybe: Is it possible to get rid of only 1 tooth? Or will I have to get rid of the 2 upper ones, because otherwise my other upper teeth could get pushed on one side? I prefer to ask you the question, I do not trust my dentist at all. Thanks for any comment! Ah, and lastly : OUCH!
