I have an infection in my root canal and also have wisdom tooth nearby root canal. So first what should I remove? Infection in the root canal or wisdom tooth? Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
From the X-ray, I understand that all your wisdom teeth are indicated for removal as they are erupting in the wrong path. However, I would suggest you get the one which is troubling you extracted first followed by re-root canal treatment for the adjacent tooth. It is better to get the extraction done first followed by the root canal. This sequence may vary from dentist to dentist and also based on patients preferences.
