I do have a huge cavity in my lower left second molar. The cavity is oriented towards the back and occluded by the lower left third molar. In order to fix the cavity (including a root canal treatment), my dentist said, that the lower left third molar has to be removed.
However, I do think it is a waste to remove a healthy tooth. Also I am worried about nerve damage to the inferior dental nerve, when removing the third molar.
I have included an XRay:
and a shot of my mouth: showing lower left 1st, 2nd, 3rd molar (order from the front)
Could anyone give me their opinion please? (With a good reasoning in case removal of the third molar is not needed)
Thank you very, very much
