I have similar problems right now. My wisdom teeth have been in for 6 months- now I have bad swelling, cannot bite down without pain. My gums also have been pulling away from my teeth, causing them to be loose. Within a short period of time, my teeth have become very stained and crowded. I have had damage to three second molars needing root canals, and I can't help thinking this is linked to the wisdom teeth. I am going to have them removed, but I want to know from anyone who has gone through this whether removing the wisdom teeth will resolve some of these issues.
