Wisdom teeth are the large teeth emerge at very back of your mouth, usually at an age of 17 and 24. Some people develop their wisdom teeth, some never. A lot of the time wisdom teeth erupt with little trouble due to no enough space for them to grow so become wedged in or ‘impacted.’

Usually the problems starts when wisdom tooth becomes impacted, the Infection and inflammation start developing in and around the tooth. This results in swollen red gums, pain, jaw stiffness, and a general feeling of being unwell. Impacted wisdom tooth results in food lodgment so teeth near damage to surrounding bone.

The dentist will prescribe antibiotics, but in most cases tooth removal is the only permanent solution.
