Wisdom teeth

I've been experienced headache for couple of days, I thought it's because I'm so lazy at work lol... but then I realize this headache come at the same time I have pain somewhere at the bottom right side of my mouth.



At first I thought maybe the pain caused by something I ate or because I've tried to eat with this side of my teeth (I usually eat with my left side of teeth). And when I change eat with my left side again the pain still there and won't go away arrrghhh....

Take a mirror and check on what caused the pain, and there it goes... it turns out my wisdom tooth is about to see the world and it's pushing the gum line (I'm sure the wisdom tooth is screaming to the gum line "let me out of here" :)).

I know I should see my dentist because sometimes the wisdom tooth fails to erupt completely through the gum bed and can caused bad condition and never ending pain. The last time I checked with my dentist was almost a year ago when I take off my braces, maybe it's about time to see her again.

Was wondering why they call this last teeth as wisdom teeth, and then I found this article from Wikipedia. They are generally thought to be called wisdom teeth because they appear so late—much later than the other teeth, at an age where people are wiser than as a child, when the other teeth erupt.

In my case, I don't think my wisdom will come after this wisdom teeth erupt :)

Ahhh that is the worst, that same thing happened to me and I had to get them removed really quick because my teeth started moving. A lot.

Well, on the one hand, getting wisdom teeth dealt with is a major pain -- literally and figuratively. On the other hand, you'll get some excellent drugs out of it! :)

I never seemed to have any trouble with my wisdom teeth. Plenty with the rest of them though.

Hm .. you are so brave. Dentist is the last doctor I want to see in the world.

I have to go to the Dentist to fix the problem on my teeth, every time I pass the hospital or her house, I always told myself, to postpone it.

If you have them removed, get a dentist that does sedation. I had to have all four of mine out...

Dear Ecky,

Treat your teeth well, as they give you that wonderful smile. Sorry about the pain, the buggers do tend to hurt a bit.

Cheers
