Symptoms of Problematic Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last of the teeth to erupt and are the last molars on the upper and lower teeth. Because wisdom teeth erupt last, at times there isn’t enough room in our mouth to accommodate them.

If you suffer from jaw pain you may have an issue with your wisdom teeth. A common symptom that you will notice is when you have concentrated pain in the area around the gums.
