I am a 20-year-old suffering from ongoing wisdom tooth pains. It all started a few months back when a wisdom tooth on the left side of my bottom jaw began erupting. Not only did I have to endure weeks of sleepless nights due to pain, I had bad breath and couldn’t eat crunchy foods. After I thought the nightmare was over, all the symptoms returned once again as the wisdom tooth on the right side decided to pop out. I have been doing research on wisdom tooth extractions and it seems very inva- sive. Although I know that extraction is best, I’m very afraid of pain and surgery. What should I do?
