I can’t speak to your situation specifically, but I can tell you my own slightly related experience. I have no wisdom teeth; xrays show that three of them don’t exist, and the fourth is an undescended nub in the upper left quadrant.
The 12-year molar in that upper left quadrant was hell for me the moment it came in when I was 13 or so. As a teenager, it hurt like hell and never fit; I once bit off a dime-size chunk of my cheek because of that stupid tooth. When I was in my 30s, a piece of it simply fell off while I was eating, and I swallowed it.
After that, I had years of dental agony related to that tooth. Root canal, caps, crowns, whatever…dentists kept trying to salvage the 12-year molar even though it was unpleasant for everyone involved - me as the patient, and the dentist trying to work on it. I BEGGED them to just remove the damn thing, but, no: “you need your molars!”
The last major work done, post-root canal, was a post with a crown. In less than a year, it fell out - first the crown, and then the actual post came out. Finally, the dentist agreed that it was time to take out what little remained of the tooth.
It was extracted, a process that was moderately unpleasant but only took 1/2 hour or so (far less arduous and painful than previous procedures I had endured). Since then … pure joy! My mouth feels so much better without that unwanted tooth there. Everything is easier now. For the first time since the tooth first came in, my mouth feels right. Flossing is simpler, my mouth feels cleaner, brushing feels like the back of my teeth actually get clean.
So, my experience suggests: if you don’t want the tooth, get rid of it. I’m 53, which means I put up with that unwanted tooth for about 40 years. I’m so happy that it is gone.
