Doctor :   Ok
User :   I have had a wisdom molar extraction the bottom one 2 years back
User :   and it was quite traumatizing
User :   how different is upper than lower?
Doctor :   There are no differents between upper and lower tooth.
User :   I have heard upper wisdoms have single roots and easier to extract
Doctor :   They contain similar structures, including similar neurovascular supply.
User :   My wisdom has started decaying and there is a terrible pain. Is it normal that the teeth ahead of the wisdom molar will have slight pain and weaker gums. The teeth ahead of it are also more sensitive now.
Doctor :   The pain during a procedure is due to the neurological structures.
Doctor :   If sufficiently anesthetized, you will be feeling reduce pain.
Doctor :   Tooth decaying can get infected.
Doctor :   This infection can spread to the surrounding gums and teeth.
