Hi, I’m 23 and my bottom left wisdom tooth has been erupting for about a year. Since it started erupting it gets sore every now and then but for the most part it’s okay and I make an effort to brush it every day. I’m in pain with it at the moment, it feels like it’s erupting a little bit more, slight bit of blood and feeling sore, but no redness and no inflammation! I took a good look at it earlier with a cotton swab (got a little blood on it) and the swab smelt when I took it away. Other than the soreness and that odd smell, there aren’t any signs of infection, the pain is bearable and I can still eat on the other side of my mouth. My dentist said they won’t remove it because it’s not causing problems at the moment(no recurring infections) so I just have to keep it for now. I’ve been rinsing with salt water and taking ibuprofen.
