Pain near jaw ending and near to ear

I am a 27y old guy and am getting pain for the past 2 days when I open my jaw completely or chew something. I went to a dental clinic yesterday. The doc, after some testing and taking Xray confirmed that wisdom teeth is growing sidewards instead of straight direction and hence I need to remove it. So I want to know whether there is another option or is it the only way? If so, How much time medication is required?Suggest some good hospitals where this can be done in Bangalore(preferably in Marathahalli, Old Airport road), if u have some good information. Thanks in advance.

Hi, your condition is due to an impacted third molar. There is no other option for the condition except surgical removal as it may lead to formation of a cyst, thinning of the jaw bone leading to fractures and a lot of other problems. It is a minor chairside procedure done under local anaesthesia, So please do not worry. A good Oral surgeon must be consulted and the procedure may be finished in half to one hour duration.

Thanks Dr.Manisha. You really helped me in sorting this out. I will now set up a meeting with a doctor here in Bangalore. Or I can set it up with a doctor in Hyderabad since I will be there next weekend mostly. If you have any good references in one of the above places, I will be grateful.

Hi Bhanu, if you will be in Hyderabad, you can visit my clinic. I am doing impaction surgeries at my clinic. I also have a visiting Oral surgeon who performs the complicated surgeries. Please take a Dental OPG and consult me. You can reach me on 98488 13162. My clinic is in Malakpet Hyderabad.

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
The problem your are suffering from is known as Pericoronitis. You should get an OPG xray taken which would show the exact position of the tooth. A dentist could determine if the tooth has sufficient space to erupt within the jaw or not. If sufficient space is not available or the tooth is impacted in an abnormal position it has to be removed surgically.
