Possibly: If you are constantly biting your tongue with your wisdom teeth, this could possibly create a bump. You should have this bump evaluated by your dentist so that they can determine its actual cause and what treatment, if any, is recommended.

No: The tongue bumps are most likely your taste buds. Have your dentist take a look at your tongue and your wisdom teeth.

Yes: If the wisdom tooth is decayed of infected it can lacerated the edge of the tongue and or irritate it to have bumps on its edge.. See your dentist to examine that wisdoms tooth and may be have it extracted.
