Wisdom teeth are the rear molars that erupt last, at around late teens or early 20s. An individual may have up to four wisdom teeth, but it can be less or even none for some. If your wisdom teeth begin to erupt but do not cause any dental and oral health risks, then you are fortunate enough.
There can be cases where wisdom teeth cause dental and oral problems such as overcrowding and impaction. If not given proper attention, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to tooth decay and gum infections.
Symptoms of Infection Caused by Wisdom Teeth
- Inflammation around the wisdom tooth
- Pain and swelling
- Pus coming from the gum line
- Lymph nodes under the jaw become sore and enlarged
- Difficulty in swallowing or opening mouth
