Common Wisdom Teeth Problems |

Pain, discomfort, bad breath, difficulty to open the mouth or swelling, pain in the ear and pus in the area are the most common symptoms of wisdom teeth problems.
Dr. Teresa Lozano, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, affirms sometimes the patient has no symptoms but they still have to check the wisdom teeth.
The specialist advises checking them because sometimes they tend to grow some cysts or a few tumors and they must be removed.
