  • It can be because of the erupting wisdom tooth which is impacted. Sometimes there is no sufficient space for the eruption of the wisdom tooth or the angulation of the wisdom tooth is not right. These teeth are called impacted wisdom teeth and they have to be pulled out. The wisdom teeth donot help in chewing, so they donot serve any purpose and rather they cause problem if they are not able to come out because of insufficient space. In your case it is better to go to dentist, get xray done and find out condition of wisdom teeth and if they are impacted then you need to get them extracted.
