    DISCLAIMER!

    I KNOW THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION BUT I NEED ANSWERS!

    I am going to the dentist tomorrow cos I have severe pain on my lower wisdom tooth (which has a deep filling).

    It needs to be REMOVED! (extracted)

    It hurts a lot and I do not want to have to wait longer (while being in serious pain) and be told I am going to be referred to an oral specialist to have it removed waiting longer!

    Will the dentist and can a dentist remove a wisdom tooth right there in the dentist chair?

    Thanks.

    He will most likely use an anesthetic.
    Or attach a small bomb to your tooth and light it off.

    Yes - just I read on the NHS website that they can refer you on to an oral specialist. I do not want that! I'd rather the dentist just remove it there and then!

    Well I don't need all 4 wisdom removed just ONE - but the pain I am in is severe the pain radiates to my ear sometimes - I was wondering it is it an abscess. Either Way it needs to be GONE! I can't wait longer and the dentist tells me they will refer me cos that will anger me.

    My wisdom are fully grown out they're not hard to reach they must be able to take it out in the chair! I know they say cos of SPACE they don't extract. and cos of the nerves being there.

    But I hope they just remove it and done! Cos it hurts......

    I'm just saying, space and nerves are a very legit reason not to extract a tooth. There aren't a lot of dentists out there who will be willing to extract your wisdom tooth on day one of meeting you (unless you know an oral specialist personally)

    Just emphasise how much pain you're in, with any luck you can get a quick referral. Take some painkillers in the interim

    I was afraid to hear some crap like that - let me say again painkillers do not work - this is past painkillers - this needs to be removed.

    I don't see why a dentist who is qualified can't extract especially if they can see it is a problem.

    Quick referral - I need it done right away - not in 5 days or 5 weeks - now.

    So, if it is a case I need to do it privately to get it removed - then so be it.
