Quick Question: wisdom teeth extraction and cold

Quick question:

my sister has made an appointment to the dentist to remove a wisdom tooth. The dentist says it is expected to be a simple procedure as the wisdom tooth is not impacted. Only local anesthetic is going to be used.

Now my question is the following: my sister has a cold, nothing serious, just a sore throat, stuffy nose and some chills.

Should she go to the dentist or not?

Is there going to be any problem with the whole procedure due to her cold?
