Wisdom Tooth Pressure/Pain
My final wisdom tooth is coming in - I had no problems with the others. I had some minor pain when it was first breaking through the gum. That was about a month ago. Beginning yesterday I began to feel some pressure and pain under the gum. Is it likely that this is just from my tooth coming up or does it sound more serious? I have a dental cleaning scheduled for Saturday so I'll have it checked out then, but I was curious. Is the pain likely to get worse, or go away like when pushing through the gum? Anything you can recommend for the pain? It's by no means excrutiating, but I'm afraid that it may get worse.
