I once had a painful "eight" so that even on the wall climb. Yes, and the floor of the face swelled. I went to the dentist, she recommended to remove the tooth, but I did not agree. It was not badly destroyed, and I wanted to save it.

As a result, they agreed on treatment. The process was, frankly, not a pleasant one. The mouth had to open very wide, as it was difficult to get to the right tooth. The roots of the "eight" a lot, so the treatment is very long and was divided into two visits. But in the end I stayed with my sealed tooth.

Turned into dentistry with aching toothache. It turned out that the wisdom tooth was ill. It is located far enough in the mouth, so I did not suspect that he was hit by caries. But this tooth at me grew exactly, discomfort did not cause any, therefore it has been decided to keep it.

In the end, I realized that in vain. I had to do a few shots, because it was very painful. After the treatment, the whole side ached and ached either from the number of injections made, or from prolonged or incorrect treatment. The seal hindered, it became inconvenient to eat. Decided to wait a while, eventually in a couple of months went to the removal.

Since the ahead of the "Seven" and "Six" I have this side, then they decided to heal the tooth. I noticed the lesion in time, the caries did not penetrate deeply, so the treatment was quick enough and painless.

Once the wisdom tooth was already removed, then for a very long time it departed from it. In addition, in its place is now a void and I still find the port unusually and a little uncomfortable. Therefore, when the next "eight" fell ill, the removal did not agree.

The tooth is on the bottom, so getting to it was not so difficult. The treatment was normal and virtually no different from filling other teeth, except that a little longer in time. After the treatment, too, everything was fine. When the frost has left the tooth, it does not hurt anymore.
