Can Wisdom Tooth Growth Cause Head And Ear Pain?

I been having constant pressure headache on the right side...and right
sided ear pain. even my eye seems sore. i been gettin this pain for sometim on and off but at moment seems worse ever.

denist said it could possibly be due to a wisdom tooth trying to grow out of the gum on the top right. i can feel the pointy bit of the tooth but its till under the gum.

I am having a hard time getting myself to believe that the wisdom tooth are the problem, I always suspect the worst like a brain tumor.

It just seems like the wisdom tooth are too much of an easy answer. And if it is the tooth why is the pain only on the ear and not the gum wer the tooth is coming out.

Could all the ear and head pain be from
that top wisdom tooth slowly trying to move over the last year?
can it take that long for it to grow out? i cant stop thinkin that it seems strange that the tooth has been trying to grow for almost more then a year and hasnt managed to even com out of the gum.

anyone had experienced similar pain and how long did it take for ur wisdom tooth to grow out...

thank u


sam

have you had any problems like infection due to your wisdom tooth?? did you see a dentist about this?? it could mean the you might need it pulled out.. i have the same problem.. we're in the same boat.

the dentist had a look and took xrays he didnt say their was an infection...can the wisdom tooth become infected whilst its stil under the gum?

and get u have it removed even though it hasnt grown out ?
