Wisdom Teeth Extraction 2

I can still remember the pain, the agony of not being able to eat my favourite food, and waking up to a bloody pillow. I went for a dental check a few weeks ago and was told that there may be some decay under my wisdom teeth. It was also growing sideways instead of the normal upright way. This caused some of the food to get stuck in between the teeth and the gums.

There may be high-fever or swelling. But the one that concerns me the most is the permanent nerve damage. What's the percentage? I think it's like 1% - 5%. There wasn't any nerve damage (Thank God) in my previous extraction. Hopefully it will be the same case for this case.

Here are the posts on my previous wisdom teeth extraction.
