They could be growing in sideways. Mine had room and cut the gums and I still had to get them out because they we’re coming at an angle

Mine hurt like heck when they came in.  The best thing to do is aspirin/ibuprofen, some ambesol, and ice.  Not much else to do.  Makes you understand why kids get so fussy when their teeth are coming in, that sh*t hurts.

My wisdom teeth were horrible, I had to have them all removed at the same time. They were impacted, became infected… it sucked. They were growing into my jaw, sideways. Pain!

I had my bottom ones taken out because one started to hurt but they hadn’t cut the skin. They were growing in sideways. I would imagine that if the dentist didn’t mention anything, they’re growing in fine (but still see one when you can!). Babies get really fussy when they’re teething, I’m guessing it’s because it’s painful and uncomfortable. Now you get to experience teething all over again and remember it.

@jumpthegun: Yes, DD’s pediatrician always told me “If adults had to go through cutting all their teeth at once, they would be crying all the time too!”

It sucks!

@sugarcube: My whole face hurt and it even made my sinuses hurt.  Nothing is worse than tooth pain IMO.  I have had both, infected and non-infected, but I really couldn’t tell the difference.  I just all hurt.  Seriously, aspirin and extra strength ambesol will be your best friend.

@sugarcube: yeah, I should have said pain reliever.  I use the word “aspirin” as all otc pain relievers.  Sorry.

It could be that they’re problematic, but it also could be normal. Think about the “teething” years that toddlers go through – the big deal is that they’re in a huge amount of pain and cranky from it, right? Well right now you’re essentially teething. I do suggest calling up your dentist just to be safe, but a good chunk of wisdom teeth removal surgeries are actually unnecessary so be careful before you drop a huge dime on surgery.

@KatyElle: I’m glad we don’t remember the traumatic things like being born and growing teeth hahahaha. We’d be in therapy for life.

@sugarcube: Better safe than sorry! And you could ask for prescription painkillers if the OTC stuff isn’t working.

@tksjewelry: Oh no, sinus pain, too? They left my top ones alone because they were teeny tiny, not causing problems, and taking them out could damage my sinuses. Sounds like you had a nightmare experience.
