1 doctor agrees

In brief: Wisdom teeth

Rarely come thru'.
There is simply not enough space in the jaw and mandible to accommodate them. See oral surgeon they can remove all of them at the same time under IV sedation (within 20 min). No other dentist can do IV sedation , is worth the extra money. A general dentist needs to do local anesthesia (needle in the mouth) they cannot IV concious sedation, and it takes forever. Get them out.

In brief: Maybe.

The pain location you describe can be the wisdom teeth erupting, particularly at your age, however it can also be other things that need to be seen by a dentist.
As for whether or not wisdom teeth can come in, there must be room in the jaw for this to happen. Again, a dentist can examine you and tell you specifics about your mouth.

In brief: Uncertain

Third molars or wisdom teeth can be positioned in many different ways.
Impacted means its position is not going to allow it to erupt completely or partially.A diagnostic xray can show its clear position.Aparently human jaws are becoming .Generally impacted wisdom teeth must be removed to avoid further problems.
