I’ve an appointment to see a oral surgeon (not in a hospital, only a minor dental surgical procedure unit) and given I haven’t got any ache, I puzzled if I ought to depart this tooth or have it eliminated ? The nerves on the x-ray are far sufficient away from the roots to not fear about these, however I’m involved in regards to the lingual nerve which does not present up on the x-ray. So I’m questioning whether or not to depart it, or danger nerve harm and different points by eradicating it.
Does this appear to be one thing which will trigger lingual nerve harm ? I realise that may be pot luck, however does it look notably dangerous ? Additionally given I’m 40 ought to I simply depart it now ? I did have terrible ache there round Christmas time, however antibiotics removed it. I’ve not had any points there since, and I can eat effective on that facet. It’s a backside left knowledge tooth. Any ideas for me to say to the dentist scale back danger of lingual nerve harm ? I’m within the UK and listen to we do issues barely much less delicately than the US with regards to nerve safety.
Would this be tough to take away ? Too dangerous ? Photos must be hooked up. Thanks all.
