  • The swelling n the gum in relation to the back molar where widom tooth should be due to the eruptig wisdom tooth. When the wisdom toothis erupting some times swollen gums known as pericoronitis is there .  You have to find out from your dentist whether there is enough space for the eruption of wisdom tooth or not. If the space is less then that means the tooth is impacted.In that case the wisdom teeth is pulled out. SO go to your dentist and get the diagnosis made.For more info on wisdom tooth you can visit the fllowing link....http://www.identalhub.com/dental-what-is-pericoronitis-909.aspx
