Impacted wisdom teeth are not always accompanied by symptoms, and are absolutely
painless. They cause no apparent trouble even when they are stuck. A little bit
of pain and discomfort may follow, which is bearable and temporary, and will disappear
in a few days. However, in some cases, an impacted wisdom tooth may cause trouble,
so serious, that it has to be removed. Partially emerged wisdom tooth may result
in trapping of food, debris and plaque in the soft tissue around it, causing infections
and tenderness of gums and tooth decay. Impacted wisdom teeth pain in such cases
is unbearable and needs immediate treatment.
