Has anyone had their top wisdom teeth removed (that were not impacted)?
I got my bottom wisdom teeth removed 10 years ago. At the time they didn’t remove the top ones, because they were not impacted. But now the top ones are causing problems because they’re pushing my other teeth together and they are impossible to clean because they are so far back…so I’m getting cavities. The oral surgeon says that removing top wisdom teeth is easier than bottom teeth, and, because they have already come into my mouth it is just pulling a tooth, not getting into the bone…he says it will be less painful than when I had the bottom ones removed, with a much quicker recovery. True? Untrue? Anything else I should know? I’m just getting a local anaesthesia, not a general.
