Can I have rhinoplasty without removing my wisdom tooth first? (the tooth has been hurting intermittently)

Rhinoplasty or Wisdom Tooth
While it will depend upon your priority, but I highly recommend considering the dental issue first as Rhinoplasty is an elective procedure and if you are not experiencing any breathing issues for the septoplasty, it can also wait. However, even if you do the septorhinoplasty first, it will not have any bearing on your wisdom tooth.
Rhinoplasty and wisdom tooth
I would perform the two procedures at the same time.The recovery will be easier and faster. If the socket becomes infected while you are recovering from the septoplasty it might become very inconvenient.If you can not find a surgeon who would do both procedures at the same time I believe that the wisdom tooth is your clinical priority.Better safe than sorry.With best regards,
