  • If you have horizontally impacted wisdom tooth then you should get it pulled out as after getting it pulled out you will feel lot better. If it is near the nerves, then your oral surgeon will be careful not to damage the nerves while extracting it. In my advice you should go for extraction as horizontally impacted tooth causes lot of problems and getting it extracted is really worth. So visit your oral surgeon asap.
