Impacted wisdom teeth without a communication to the mouth, that is no pathologically associated with the tooth and have not caused tooth resorption on the blocking tooth rarely have symptoms.When wisdom teeth communicate with the mouth, the most common symptom is localized pain, swelling and bleeding of the tissue overlying the tooth. This tissue is called the operculum and the disorder called pericoronitis which means inflammation around the crown of the tooth. Low grade chronic periodontitis commonly occurs on either the wisdom tooth or the second molar, causing less obvious symptoms such as bad breath and bleeding from the gums. The teeth can also remain asymptomatic, even with disease.As the teeth near the mouth during normal development, people sometimes report mild pressure of other symptoms similar to teething.The term asymptomatic means that the person has no symptoms. The term asymptomatic should not be equated with absence of disease. Most diseases have no symptoms early in the disease process. A pain free or asymptomatic tooth can still be infected for many years before pain symptoms develop.
