Most people associate wisdom teeth eruption with pain in their mouth, but what about pain in your neck? Dr. Hudson regularly sees patients who have signs and symptoms that their wisdom teeth are erupting but may not have made the connection to their condition because these symptoms seem unrelated. If you’re experiencing these symptoms and think your wisdom teeth may be involved, it’s time to give Dr. Hudson a call.
Wisdom teeth are located in the very back of the mouth, near the ear. The pain of eruption or impaction frequently radiates to the nearby ear. The pain can be similar to an ear infection, causing patients to seek treatment from their doctor, instead of their dentist, for their pain. If the teeth have not erupted, the patient may not realize that their wisdom teeth are causing their ear pain, leaving them frustrated and without answers.
