  • There are vaious types of antibiotics available and you can not be resistant to all of them. You have to tell to your dentist about the antibiotics you are resistant so he will prescribe you the othere which have different salt and to which you are not resistant. So do not worry on that account and get the wisdom tooth extraction done. If you follow all the instructions give by your dentist after getting the extraction then the chances of getting the infection are reduced.
