      Tinnitus Since:
      I was thinking about having a wisdom tooth pulled but I'm concerned it might make my tinnitus worse. I have the second molar next to it on the bottom already pulled. It is on the left side where my tinnitus is worse. I have all my other teeth including wisdom teeth. The wisdom tooth I want pulled is the only wisdom tooth that is "messed up". The dentist drilled out a lot of the tooth and it seems like half of it is gone and the top of the tooth has almost a 45 degree angle. The rest of my wisdom teeth are normal.

      Tinnitus Since:
      I had a messed up wisdom tooth pulled a few weeks ago. I was a bit stressed that it would make my T worse, but it was fine. A little bit of an increase and some very sharp pain in my jaw, but it did settle down within a few days. I would be more concerned about dry socket which can be seriously painful.
