    I'm so miserable right now. I had my upper wisdom teeth removed a year ago, but the lower ones weren't taken out cos they were too close to a nerve which meant I could lose the feeling in my lower lip. They also never really came through properly so they're still half buried in my gum. This meant it was almost impossible to clean them properly and I basically forgot about them for a while. Until now - I have realised they're all grey/black and my breath is really bad, which must be because of my wisdom teeth. I have to go on a waiting list to have them removed apparently but I can see an emergency dentist next week. Would he be able to drill them or something, just to get rid of the disgusting smell?

    Sounds like you do have rotting teeth yes, horrible things wisdom teeth mine give me grief aswell.

    Im sure they will look at them and then do the best they can with them, they may file them down somewhat or just leave them, for the time being i think mints is the best option to try and keep the smell away.

    And better oral hygiene

    carry breath strips, mints or something like that with you at all times, use them specially after lunch and dinner. Ive kind of the same problem and the only way ive been able to cure is by brushing and mints.

    Sounds like you have really bad decay, if its sever they may end up taking them out but the dentist told me its a little tricky. Just hope for the best

    I have to get 4 back teeth out cause "apparently" my mouths too small to fit my wisdom teeth but IMO if i didn't have enough space for them then they wouldn't grow in.
    Gah I hate dentists!!!!
