In brief: Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth can cause damage to neighboring structures, which can result in feeling pain.
Early and prompt treatment of wisdom teeth is highly recommended.

The pain could also be from other teeth or periodontal (gum) problems. This should be evaluated by a thorough dental examination.

In brief: Always possible

But the pain may be coming from other issues.
Have yourself evaluated at a local office.
