Please give me your honest opinion . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am a junior in college , living on my own , without family ties because of an abusive situation I left. I separated from his safe . Medicaid gave me a high deductible because of my job that pays well . However, I have recently fired . I have another job that pays little and student loans to pay rent / cell phone bill now . MedlinePlus So I called oral surgeons offering IV sedation within 60 miles , and they are public hospitals and one university that is very questionable ( I have visited ) . The public hospital I went to a surgeon assigned me with 6 months experience after dental school . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have four impacted teeth , possibly abscess formation . I can not risk a bad procedure and other visits , so we chose a surgeon in my city with a reputation that is charging $ 2,500 ish . I can set up a credit account for care or payment. I'm not sure whether or not to establish Care Credit ( read bad reviews online about them ) or to pay in advance. I have no credit history and have been living on my own for almost eight months . However, I am willing to have painful teeth removed , and I feel very comfortable with the surgeon you choose . What do you think ?

I think you're being a responsible adult . Affected or infected wisdom teeth can erode the bone of the jaw , leading to what used to be known as a glass jaw . Ongoing infection can also damage your health now and in the future . We are researching your options well and I wish you luck !
