Re: Tooth extraction advice needed please - not wisdom tooth
Short answer: It depends.
Long answer: It depends on way too many factors to even start a comparison. I've done thousands of extractions, and they all were different. There are wisdom tooth extractions that initially seem utterly difficult but the tooth comes out very easily. There are other molar extractions that look ridiculously straightforward but aren't at all.
Other people's teeth and their extractions aren't yours. Besides that, postponing a suggested extraction for "ages" isn't exactly a good idea, but even that depends on too many variables to assess the severity of your case over the Internet.
