Wisdom Teeth: I'm not aware of any direct relationship between wisdom teeth and dizziness, but there's definitely been shown a connection between headaches and wisdom teeth. The solution to your headaches is to have your wisdom teeth removed. This is a very safe and common procedure. You should see an oral surgeon for an evaluation to see what's best for you. Good luck!

Dizziness & headaches, could this be caused by wisdom teeth coming in?

Possibly: Dizziness and headaches may be associated with wisdom teeth, however many other conditions can also cause dizziness and headaches. See your doctor. After obtaining a complete history and physical exam, your doctor may refer you to an oral surgeon, order tests, and/or refer you to a neurologist. Antibiotics may be needed if there is any infection near the wisdom tooth.
