  • It is not always necessary to remove the wisdom tooth if it is not causing any problem . if it has erupted in alignment and is not causing any problem to the adjacent teeth and gums there is no need to remove it. In most of the cases, the wisdom tooth does not erupted in alignment and either cause pain and swelling or the cheek bite. In your case you have to find out the cause of cheek bite and if it is because of wisdom tooth then it is better to get it removed. The wisdom teeth don not help in chewing and if they are removed they do not have any adverse affect on the dentition. There is no home remedy for cheek bite. You have to find out the cause of cheek bite and get it treated. Sometimes it is because of the sharp teeth also. Teeth become sharp as a result of decay or the wearing off. Without clinical examination it is difficult to tell you the cause. Visit your dentist and find out the cause. If it is because of decay then filling will do or your dentist will round off the tooth.. For more information on wisdom tooth you can visit the following link on our website.
