Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars, located at the very back of the mouth. They are called wisdom teeth.

Signs of gum infection caused by a wisdom tooth include:

red, inflamed gum near the wisdom tooth
pus coming from the gum
the lymph glands under the jaw become swollen and sore
it may become difficult to open the mouth and to swallow

Your dentist will check for signs of a wisdom tooth coming through your gum or crowding other teeth. You will have X-rays to find out if your wisdom teeth are causing problems now or are likely to cause problems in the future.
