Well, I had two coming in horizontal, and two coming in at 45 degree angles. Had no room in my jaw for a third set, they’d have been pushing my other teeth forward and that would have been a mess.
He said, "Let me take a look, crack ... snap."
What did you do?! "I pulled it; let me get the other one, crack - pop." I went back to duty with no rigmarole.
I kept the two uppers and the only thing I have noted through the many years is that they hang halfway over the lower molars. No dentist has ever wanted to pull them.
I had a similar problem when I was about 25 years old, my wisdom teeth were horizontal, still deep in my lower jaw and causing problems. The dentist made the incisions and chiseled into the bone. He couldnt grip the teeth with what he had in the office, left and came back with needle nose vice grips and they worked. Fortunately he had great pain killers.
All of mine were coming in sideways - had them all pulled when in my 20’s. One side at a time.
My DH had one infected while he was in the Airforce, wouldn’t let him leave Vietnam until extracted. In his early 50’s, had one pulled and has permanent nerve damage (apparently the older you are when they are pulled the higher risk of nerve damage- surgeon told him point blank before the extraction he could have damage) He’s got one left and so far it’s OK. He should have had them all yanked out in his 20’s. (hindsight)
