    So, went to the dentist to have a simple tooth extraction.. got the x rat done to find out that what was causing most of my complications was a horizontally growing wisdom tooth, not only that but my left rear bottom tooth has a curved root that’s shaped almost like a fishing hook going up and underneath the wisdom tooth. Is this common?

    It's a variation of people's anatomy...not common, not rare.
