Hello, Based on your symptoms it looks like a classic case of pericoconitis(inflamed gums over the wisdom tooth area).Generally surgical removal of the tooth and disinfecting the area is recommended. Regards Dental Arts Bangalore

Hello there! According to the symptoms you have reported, there are three possibilities, 1. The gums around it may have become inflamed and there may be pus formation due to food impaction in its surrounding gums. 2. The wisdom tooth may have already developed caries(cavity) if there was food impaction since a long time. This cavity maybe the cause of pain if it has reached the nerve(pulp) of the tooth. 3. One rare possibility is a deep cavity in the tooth preceding your wisdom tooth which may have formed because of food impaction in between the second molar and the wisdom tooth. Nonetheless, a sound diagnosis and treatment plan depends on clinical examination and X-RAY of the affected region. The treatment does not necessarily need removal of the tooth. Apart from tooth removal, reshaping of the gums around the tooth may help if we are facing the above mentioned 1st possibility.

The episodes of pain in wisdom tooth may vary in intensity from mild discomfort to unbearable pain depending on the position of the tooth,its proximity to adjacent teeth,the angle of eruption and the space available for its eruption.Radiating pain from tooth to ear is typical of wisdom teeth due to underlying nerve at the root of the teeth.In case the wisdom tooth has adequate space for eruption and is disease free there is no problem in retaining it but if the problems outweigh its utility then it is better to extract them,after clinical and radiological evaluation.

Hi,I feel it needs to be evaluated first ,clinically and radiographically (x ray) to  know whether the problem is because of wisdom tooth alone or another adjacent tooth is also involved Then the treatment plan would be decided accordingly.
