i wanted to ask why it hurts when we have a wisdon tooth, how long would the pain last?
The wisdom tooth as you know erupts the last, after all other teeth has erupted.
Normally when it erupts there would be no much pain.
But since it is at the end of the jaw, and if there is no much space there,
it gets blocked by the tooth in front of it.
Then it causes inflammation around the area and causes pain.
Or if the position of the teeth is slightly changed, like in
horizontal position, instead of vertical position,
it gets trapped in the jaw.
Then it would be called as an impacted third molar.
In those cases, it would be required to relieve the tooth from its position.
Until it is removed, it causes pain.
thank you for your reply
So, to see if it is just a wisdom tooth erupting, or if it is an impacted tooth
you can use warm salt water gargling, to relieve of the symptoms
