Hello Doc., my wisdom tooth came on lower right jaw. Initially there was little pain but by regular gargle with salted warm water it has no pain now, but some part of skin is on the top of the tooth. I have consulted a dentist he is suggesting to remove the tooth. Please suggest.

Hi.Just ask him to perform aperculectomy or cut the gums which are covering the tooth.That should solve the problem.If the tooth is straight. Regards Dr.Sha

Dear, Is the tooth is erupting in the position, if yes wait for some time for it to fully erupt. If it is not erupting in its ideal position, get it extracted immediately. Regards
