My left lower molar is hurting in the root area and it's swollen. It hurts when I bit down and/ or eat something. I've done some research and I think it could be a wisdom tooth but I'm not sure. Im 15 and I have braces so it also cod just be a loose band but I want to rule all possible problems out. Thanks

  • If you have braces and the tooth is hurting , it can be because of some loose band or it can be because of the wire exerting pressure. Whether it is because of the wisdom tooth or not can not be commented upon with out clinical examination. For this you have to go to the dentist and get the examination done.
