But d swelling becomes too worst tat it makes eating very difficult... It subsides wen I eat cream... I noticed tat my inner cheek near wisdom tooth is of grey in colour... On both d sides of my cheeks... Wat is it n wat is d cure? Plz help. I also noticed few months back something like a white partical inbetween my teeth... Only after trying to remove it with toothpick I realised tat was a small tiny tooth grown inbetween two teeths. On one occasion I had severe jaw pain n severe headache... D pain subsided after medication from a general physician... Plz help. I had asked by my family doctor to meet dentist for d tiny tooth.

As suggested by fellow dentists it is highly advisable to meet a dentist and get your tooth examined for clear opinion.Also you can get a full mouth x-ray before meeting your dentist .From your explanation you have an impacted wisdom tooth which is causing the swelling .Regarding the extra tooth ..only examination can determine its cause .All the best.
