  • You have not mentioned whether your wisdom tooth has already erupted or not. If it is not erupted then may be your wisdom tooth which is the third molar, is erupting. Any way you should visit your dentist and get the X-ray done. It will confirm the diagnosis. Till then you can keep doing the warm saline rinses and take the pain killer if needeed. If you want to know more about the wisdom tooth you can visit the following link on our web site.....http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-wisdom-teeth-47.aspx
