Despite what is usually said wisdom teeth often come out without any symptoms. If anything a slight discomfort at the time of its eruption, this is a sign that they have the necessary space to leave without problems.
But if this is not the case it is normal for the rash to be painful and the inflammation of the gum to occur in addition to being able to grow crooked when having to break through and cause an infection that affects the mucosa or even the bone, in this case the intervention of the dentist will be needed.
The best thing to do when warning that the wisdom teeth begin to erupt is to go to the dentist’s office in order to evaluate if they have enough space, if they grow crooked or there is some other problem such as an infection.
