I'm scheduled to get my wisdom teeth out in 2 weeks and I'm wondering if it's even really necessary. I've only had one issue with a wisdom tooth, that was 2 weeks ago when I bit my gum on the bottom because my bottom teeth are only mostly out and not 100%. The thing is, if I'm going to do it, I have to do it now because I lose my insurance at the end of May. My insurance company is paying $1,500 for it, but I still have to pay $1000 out of pocket PLUS miss out on my money making shifts at work (they only do surgeries on Fridays, I'll have to take 5 days off). Does anyone have experience they can share? It's a lot of money (losing about $1,400 I don't have), it's a painful procedure, and I'm nervous about being put under.
If anyone is interested, this is the cool X-Ray my oral surgeon took. You can see my top 2 are still under the gums, my bottom two are almost completely out.
