My wisdom teeth are just coming in. My left wisdom tooth just poked out about a week ago. Three days ago my left ear became inflamed, with pains that come up regularly. The first day my whole jaw hurt with it. Like someone has punched me while I slept. The second the jaw pain was gone. The third day my jaw hurt again. WHAT IS UP WITH THIS!?

  • The pain in the jaw and the earache can be because of the erupting wisdom tooth. when the wisdom tooth starts erupting it some times becomes infcted causing pain and some times because of the insufficient space for its eruption it causes pain . if there is less space for its eruption then we say that the wisdom tooth is impacted and we have to get it pulled out. You have to go to the dentist who will take the X-ray and do the clinical examination and find out the cause and do the treatment. for more info on wisdom teeth you can visit the following
