I have had a wisdom tooth coming in for a year or so. Every couple of months it would hurt for a couple of days and then stop. Not real pain, just standard "tooth coming in" aching. Anyway, about a week ago it started hurting more and I realized it may be finally finishing coming in. However, I think it is partially erputd.
Now right now it really only hurts when I touch it and occasionally when I eat. Still not serious pain, just what I would expect it to feel like. Is there a chance my wisdom tooth is still just coming in and everything's going to be fine? I don't have health insurance. I really can't afford to remove an impacted tooth, and since I've never had any dental surgery, I really don't want to have to. Do I have a choice? If not, how immediate is this issue? Can it wait several months (until I go home for winter break)? and about how much would it cost without insurance?
