The most common complication would be food trapping. When the food gets built up, it can cause gum inflammation and tooth decay. It will cause more problems if the decay happens to affect other surrounding teeth. Eventually, it can cause collateral damage as once there is a hole in your wisdom tooth, the hole will only get increasingly bigger. Nothing is better than your own tooth. Fillings are not as good as your own tooth. But, it also depends on your oral hygiene. In fact, a bad filling can still do its job if you have perfect oral hygiene.
One option would be to get the soft tissue cut out. However, I would recommend removing the wisdom tooth alongside at the same time as cutting the soft tissue out. This is because cutting just the soft tissue may cause a repeated problem. Soft tissues can regrow back over time. The soft tissue will try to revert to how it was before it was cut.
Yes, but not all the time. If you remove the lower wisdom tooth (maybe due to impact or decay), super eruption will occur. Naturally, teeth will move when there is space in the mouth as they do not like space. When there is nothing on the bottom after the extraction, the top teeth will grow downwards. This is a natural thing for teeth to do. Did you know that the tongue gets bigger as you grow older? When you have fewer teeth, the tongue will grow further into the spaces. Everything in your mouth does not like space and they will move to fill space in.
