I was forced into it, as the wisdom tooth was impacted, laying sidewise, grafting to the jaw bone that was less on the right than the left, the nerve
was wrapped around
the roots, and there was a cyst growing over it all, that was getting larger after watching it for 2 years. The surgery was not bad, they did peel my gums away, get the tooth, and reattach my gums. I also had a hole in the back. The os told me that he kept my tooth, as the nerve had worn grooves into the root of the tooth.
