    Hello,

    My upper right wisdom tooth feels deformed. I have had them all for a few years with no pain or impact but I have noticed over time the one on the top right feels almost as if it's half a tooth. It has been a while since I have been to a dentist (three years) but am making an appointment. Could it be the way it grew in but if it is decay I am wondering why there is no pain or inflammation?

    Thank you

    Upper wisdom teeth can sometimes be smaller than other molars, or a squished sort of shape.They may not feel sore of be giving you trouble now, but they are often hard to clean properly, and are at risk of getting decayed, or worse still starting decay in the next molar. Go to your dentist and see what he says. They are usually very easy extractions.
