Upper wisdom teeth
that are outwardly placed may hinder jaw movement and cause muscle soreness. Lower wisdom teeth, when infected ,may also make mouth opening painful. Removal of wisdom tooth should not be painful as your dental surgeon will numb out the area completely and prescribe analgesics to control the discomfort post extraction. Sometimes a little bit of bone may be obstructing your wisdom tooth and may have to be guttered to facilitate removal of the tooth but yet again, there is nothing to worry. If your wisdom tooth is causing adverse symptoms, go ahead with its extraction.
