  • It is better to get the wisdom tooth extracted if the angulation is not right. If you donot get extracted then you can have infection which can cause swelling and pain. The locked jaw problem can also increase and then you can get it pulled out till you take antibiotics to subside the infection. So it is better to get it pulled out .
