I have red soft bump on my gum where your wisdom teeth would grow. Mine haven't grown in yet. It doesn't hurt unless I bite down. Help? (Female, 16)

In brief: See your dentist

Sometimes wisdom teeth are valuable asset when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.
The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common procedures at ages 15-24. See your dentist for evaluation and x-rays.

Go to the dentist and have the dentist radiograph all four wisdom teeth to make sure that they are coming in correctly and there is adequate room. It sounds like you have an emerging wisdom tooth, which can be painful.
Get it checked out.
