I'm afraid at age 55.
I need a top wisdom tooth removed . its growing downward and has cavity. Is there any other choice?

Top Wisdom Tooth to be Removed
It sounds like you do not have a lower wisdom tooth on that side, and therefore your upper wisdom tooth has dropped down. That, combined with the fact that it is decayed, does warrant extraction, UNLESS that tooth is absolutely necessary for another reason.
