Hello wisdom tooth pain is very common now a days. Wisdom tooth are never used for mastication purpose. So we always prefer to extract the tooth. And if your pain is due to caries and you want to save the tooth, you can go for filling or root canal treatment depending upon the severity of caries involvement.

Hi just go for removal of teeth.
X ray of that wisdom teeth is necessary. After studying iopa or opg we can decide treatmentplan.
You need to get it extracted coz it's a trouble maker. Antiobiotics and pain killers won't suppress it for long.
Wisdom tooth comes on the mouth between the age of 18 to 25. It gives some pain while coming out. But if it gets locked in the jaw and so is unable to come out, then it will pain. Keep the area clean with a brush regularly in the meantime.
Remove is as soon as possible. In short, it is useless tooth.
Hi lybrate-user. This is one of the most common problem patients face. Wisdom teeth can cause pain due to many reasons. Most commonly, when they are trying to erupt but there is not enough space in the jaw. Sometimes they erupt in unusual positions. As they are the last teeth in the arch, it is very difficult to clean that area, so they are more prone for decay. I would advice you to visit a dentist for an examination and an xray to see the exact position of the tooth and the cause of the pain. The treatment will depend on the cause of the pain. If the tooth is not completely erupted, it might have to be removed with a minor surgical procedure. Don't worry, it is routine procedure carried out in the dental clinics. Take care.
Dear lybrate-user, wisdom tooth may erupt at the age of 26+years depending on its location to erupt, space available and nearby tooth condition and nature of jaw etc. The very common symptom is pericoronitis/operculitis. Just make sure the surrounding area is clinically clean fron all food debris. You may use 0.2% cholrhexidine m/wash. In severe case we may prescribe antibiotics. If not erupts properly you may take one opg xray and if needed extract the offending tooth.

Wisdom teeth usually need to be removed. You should get it checked because sometimes they exert pressure on adjacent teeth and damage them. In that case, extracting them becomes compulsory.
If it is in akward position, than plan for extraction. Go to your dentist n consult. Otherwise send me xray.
take pain killers as per need. do warm saline rinses at least twice a day.. avoid chewing from that side. if problem persists get examined by a dentist ....

The wisdom teeth rarely erupt straight. They have gum tissue above them which gets swelled up if some food gets struck and as tooth is far behind brush can't reach there. This can lead to cavity in partially erupted tooth. So without examining it is difficult to pin point the cause. Any pain killer will relieve the pain but the reason of pain needs to be found and treated.
