Failed molar filling or impacted wisdom tooth?

Dec 20, 2021
Hi all. I went to see my dentist as an emergency for throbbing pain today. My first molar has a very deep filling which has worn down. I thought that was the cause.

She recommended I have that extracted which is booked for Xmas eve. Xmas ruined!

When she did X-ray she noted that I have a horizontally impacted wisdom tooth but said nothing else about it.
I’ve been given antibiotics to clear any infection but I’m concerned that pulling this first molar isn’t the best thing to do.

Have I been recommended the wrong course of treatment?
Thank you
