My wisdom tooth is growing at the age of 32. Went to Dr. He prescribed painkillers and antibiotics. For 3 days. What should I do. He told for extraction. But my parents were telling no need of extraction. What should I do.

Wisdom tooth is one of the rudimentary organs. This means that exists in our our body but has no function. It is not intelligence to keep the decayed wisdom tooth in your mouth bcoz it will decay d adjacent required tooth. So its very much advisable to go for extraction bcoz it has NO SIDE EFFECTS OR AFTER EFFECTS.
