Wisdom tooth eruptio: Wisdom tooth eruption can be accompanied by headaches, pain in the jaw and ear, ringing of ears, and disruption of normal activities. Best to take a pain reliever such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. You can also use cold ice packs to jaw for 10 min 2-3 times a day. The ulcer in the mouth is probably just due to stress.
