Wisdom teeth, to yank or not to yank

My wisdom teeth are pushing their merry little way through the surface of my gums, and one of them are impacted and pushing the other teeth foward. It is a pain but from a neighbor, his came in all wrong and he is doing fine. Why does it cost so much to have the little boogers yanked out and why can't county health give better insurance for such painful things? My county medical wants to pull all my cavity infested teeth and leave my wisdom teeth in. I rather just have my wisdom teeth pulled and the others drilled filled and capped so that I can eat properly. I don't want to run around with missing teeth and holes in my mouth. What is your opinion on this?

I actually have no idea what it costs. My wisdom teeth came in impacted, and I haven't had any problems with them. I also have cavities I've never had filled and haven't had any problem with. But I'm morbidly afraid of dentists!

LOL I'm afraid too! With my agoraphobia I just wanted to tell the dentist where to stick it when he told me that my insurance plan will pull the cavity teeth out. Tomorrow I go to another dentist and he knows of my panic attacks so I'll be okay with that. I'm about to just give up and not do anything with my teeth, even though I do have pain, it can't last forever...
