it must need surgery to extract your wisdom tooth and that is why he is referring to an oral surgeon or orthodontist to perform safe surgery.

What happens when someone is in in pain and in an emergency goes to a general dentist but has to have to be refereed to someone else?


Does the general dentist get the patient out of pain or just sends them on their way?


When I saw your post I remembered my experience with a dentist in an emergency dental care recently. My mom had an extreme toothache one evening and I gave her a painkiller. I thought of taking to her a dentist the next day. In spite of taking tablets, she was having an excruciating toothache, she was in pain and discomfort the whole night. Finally, I took her to an emergency dental clinic in the early hours. Thankfully I could show her to the dentist without prior appointment. She had an abscessed tooth which was the cause of her toothache. A dentist attended to her immediately.
