Molar/sensitive teeth toothache

I am 17 years old. I have been getting pain by my molar and premolar. Its also my sensitive teeth. The pain is worse at night. A month or so ago, I went for an x ray for my wisdoms and they are impacted so Dr said I have to wear my retainers every night. The roots of wisdoms are not yet out. But the pain is severe that I cant wear my retainers. What should I do? My teeth are sensitive to cold and heat. Its only on my right side.

Answer: Impacted Third Molars

By BracesInfo.com Expert 10

More than likely it is time for you to visit an oral surgeon to evaluate the eruption of your third molars (wisdom teeth). A panoramic xray will be taken in order to see all your wisdom teeth and their development. The surgeon will evaluate the eruption pattern and determine if and when the teeth will need to be removed if necessary. Wisdom teeth can cause discomfort during eruption, especially when they are impacted or unable to erupt fully. Many times a referral is needed from your general dentist, so a visit with him/her may be necessary first. In the meantime, rinse 2-3 times daily with warm salt water and take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory to help with discomfort.
