I went to a dentist about three weeks ago because my back molar was starting to hurt me. I have not been to a dentist in a long while so I was well beyond just going for a check up. I was told that I should have five extractions my four wisdom teeth and the back molar that was hurting me because it could not be saved.
Wanting a second opinion since I was told I would need to go to an oral surgeon for the wisdom teeth extraction I went to a different dental office. Where that dentist did agree that I needed to have the one bad molar removed but I did not have to have my wisdom teeth pulled in his opinion. Which dentist is right? Is the first dentist trying to rip me off by referring me to an oral surgeon I when I do not have to have the teeth pulled?
