Removal is best: Hi there, what you experienced is very common for wisdom teeth -- in fact, that is probably the number one reason people have them taken out. Please visit a dentist near you and have it evaluated for extraction.

Inflamation: Possibly infection, or eruption induced inflammation, or impacted food debris. See your Dentist to assure that wisdom teeth are erupting properly, not problematicly, and to evaluate and, if necessary, treat your gums. Your Dentist may refer you on to a wisdom tooth specialist, an Oral Surgeon.
