My right lower wisdom teeth is also horizontally growing. How long after this dental surgery should I preferably remove that other teeth. Or should I wait till I feel uncomfortable with that teeth n then remove it. please suggest. thank you.

Hi. You can go for the removal of the other Wisdom tooth after a month or so, it's personally your choice. If the third molar is not causing you any problem as such then leave it for now but yes do keep a check on it like whether it's impinging/ pushing or harming the adjacent tooth. I mean to say do keep a check on it radiographically (X-ray) as well as clinically. Consult a dentist as well for that tooth.

It's a vestigial organ it's ur choice as it gives some trouble than get it removed to recover fast now rinse with warm salt water three four times a day chew on a gum
6 months after you can get other side done ..please be comfortable with the side having surgery first ..
Yes you can wait. Let this one heal properly.
Wait till you recover.
