07:49 pm - Wisdom teeth
I think one of my wisdom teeth's growing in.  It's been hurting back there for the past few days, at first I thought it was a cavity, but today I stuck my finger back there to see which teeth it was that was hurting and found out it actually wasn't a tooth, but the gums behind my teeth.

I know several of my friends have had their wisdom teeth pulled, but I was wondering if I just let it be, will it just grow out and then the pain will be gone?  Does anyone know?  If letting it just grow doesn't harm anything then I think I'll just put up with the pain for now and leave it.

I would go for getting them pulled.

If you leave them to come in, they may shift your teeth forward or wherever. And while crooked teeth aren't a problem for some people, an overcrowded mouth with misaligned/shotty-aligned teeth can wreak havoc on your bite and subsequently cause problems down the road.

As well, you have to watch for impacted wisdom teeth as well. :/ Those aren't fun either.

I can't remember if you had braces or not.

Anyway, if they're coming in and not crowding, then I say to leave them. If they're bothering you and you do have to have them out, then just go and get it done and over with.
