Problem: Even though you do not see a wisdom tooth it does not mean that the problem does not originate from an erupting tooth below the gum line. Could also be the opposing wisdom tooth erupting. Could also be other dental problems. Therefore in order to know what it is and what to do about it you will need to see your local dentist.
