Signs that the wisdom teeth are coming in include gum irritation and pain in that area. Symptoms vary for each person and depend on whether there are any issues with the teeth or not. If the wisdom teeth come in properly, the person may not have any symptoms.
Gum irritation includes soreness or an itching sensation. Redness and swelling of the gums in the area of the wisdom teeth is also common.
Pain from wisdom teeth tends to be infrequent to start, before becoming more common as the teeth come in further. Pain is more likely and also more severe if there is a problem with the wisdom teeth, such as an infection or an alignment issue.
