How do you know if a wisdom tooth is infected?

I think mine might be infected.


Answer by  P29 (42)

Pain around the tooth is one way to know for sure that a tooth is infected and swollen gums are another sign that the area around the wisdom tooth is infected. Pain around the tooth and cavities in the tooth are a sign that the tooth itself is infected.

The only way to be 100% certain is to see an oral surgeon and have an xray taken. But there would probably be pain, swelling, and even puss.

If it is infected you will probably have from mild to severe pain. There may be a gum boil close to the tooth also.


Answer by  sailoryue (853)

if any tooth is infected you will know by the pain you are in. tooth pain is the second worst pain a person can have (close second only to labor) no pain killers will take the pain away, not even powerful tranquilizers.
