At Christmas time I was chewing on a tough lolly and my back wisdom tooth pulled out a bit. It healed fine after a few days but it loosened up again on a piece of chewing gum about 3 weeks ago, since then it has been quite painful. I have been trying not to chew on that side but it still doesn't seem to be healing. It is very sore and tender. Should I see a dentist or wait for it to heal itself again?

  • If the tooth is loose and it is paining then you should go for its removal. As such also wisdom teeth do not help in chewing and they are not useful. If it is causing problem then you should get it pulled out. You can go to the dentist and schedule an appointment for the same.
