Can wisdom teeth cause problems like persistent pressure in the head and ear problems like fullness and crackling when swallowing?
Yes, if the tooth is infected it can cause swelling in the jaw joint, it can also cause the same swelling if the tooth keeps extending and rectracting

I've had braces for almost 2 years now, and I've never had this happen to me, nor have I heard of anyone else who had ear pressure problems resulting from their braces. here i…s a of a case of 11-year old Holly Ulrich of Minnesota. Holly, an apparently healthy girl, had a simple impacted bicuspid, so an orthodontist applied stainless steel braces. On July 13 the top braces were installed. Shortly after these upper braces were installed, Holly complained of a pain behind her ear and that her "eyes watered." (Headaches are a common complaint with new braces wearers and are not considered a serious symptom of anything!) Seven days later the lower braces were installed. Within a few days after that installation the left side of Holly's face became paralyzed. Her left eye would not close, her right eyelid closed down and her mouth was distorted into a grimace. The family took Holly to the pediatrician. Julie Ulrich, her mother, told Search for Health that she "felt the braces had something to do with the problem." The pediatrician dismissed the braces as a cause of the facial paralysis and referred the Ulrich family to a "child" neurologist. This specialist also dismissed the mother's question about whether the braces may have had a role in this problem and referred Holly to an "adult" neurologist. This expert also ruled out the braces and referred Holly to an ear, nose and throat specialist. The consensus of medical opinion diagnosed Holly with "Bell's Palsy." This is a facial paralysis named after Sir Charles Bell and the experts say it can be caused by trauma, injury or virus. In Holly's case they said it was a virus. It gives one pause to think, when the medical experts admit that trauma or injury can cause Bell's Palsy, yet they give the obvious trauma of braces short shrift in this case, and likely in other cases. Millions of applications of braces clamp down on children's teeth, and some adults too, each year and the specialists are quick to point out that "nothing adverse happens" to the wearer. Well, nothing we may notice. But I've yet to talk with the product of orthodontia who didn't complain of "headaches." Also, has anyone questioned why so many millions have crooked teeth these days? God did not create crooked teeth. We have done something to interfere with optimum development in our children. Could it be malnutrition and pollution? Anyway, back to Holly Ulrich. For 10 weeks the medical specialists sought valiantly, but unsuccessfully, to isolate a virus, and at the same time young Holly was socked full of steroids, but showed no improvement. Her mother related how terrifying it was to hear one of the doctor's tell her that a percentage of the damage to Holly appeared to be "permanent." At about the nine-week mark, Julie Ulrich was beside herself with concern. She called her best friend's brother, who happened to be a neurologist who had served his residency at Mayo Clinic. He told her to "diligently pursue the braces" as a possible cause. Returning to the orthodontist, who was appalled at Holly's condition, Mrs. Ulrich was told: "There is no way the braces could have caused the problem." Intuitively, Mrs. Ulrich continued to suspect the braces despite the powerful and arrogant assurances of the various experts. Then she heard about Gary Jacobsen DDS of Minneapolis, who happens to be a disciple of Hal Huggins DDS one of the leading modern mavericks taking on the profession. Dr. Jacobsen urged her to have the braces removed as soon as possible. To him, the girl's system was obviously incompatible with a material in the braces, or the electrical circuitry generated by the metal braces in her particular mouth caused adverse nerve reactions. The family orthodontist agreed to remove the braces, but was not convinced it was even remotely related to the palsy. Two days after the braces were removed Holly hopefully pointed out that when she pinched her face that "it felt different." After seven days she had movement in the paralyzed portions of her face and she was on the road to recovery. The ear, nose and throat specialist saw her at this time. It was a different doctor, not familiar with the case. He noted that what he was seeing in Holly "did not go along with the chart." "We had the braces removed," Mrs. Ulrich said. The specialist did not see any reference to braces in the charts and, as Mrs. Ulrich reports, he "hemmed and hawed, but didn't have any comment." The braces were removed October 6, 1992. By October 19 Holly was virtually back to normal. To his credit the family orthodontist planned to "write the case up and turn it in." (I have also have problems from braces and don't know what I should do) I have had braces for 2 years and i have had ear pressure problems so maybe but i dont know SRY I have had braces for almost a year and a half and recently I have begun to suffer from ear pressure and jaw problems. Since I had no trouble before the braces, I have a feeling that their must be some relation. I have had braces for almost two years and just earlier this month I've started to have problems opening and closeing my jaw. Also throbbing and slight pain near my ear. It got better when I stopped wearing my rubber bans for a few days. I just had my braces tightened and now even if I don't wear my rubber bans it's happening. If it doesn't stop soon I'm going to go to my doctor. My cousin after having her jaw stretched instead of teeth pulled developed permenant tmj problems. My father as well has permenant tmj problems after a fall. My father and cousin are not related so I'm worried that in both sides of my family we might be prone to tmj problems. If that's true I'm worried that my braces could cause me to have tmj problems. This site talks about your tmj: http://www.entnet.org/healthinfo/topics/tmj.cfm

Wisdom teeth coming in does not normally cause swelling ortightness in the throat. The most common side effect is a sore jaw.
I just had 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and have only just started experiencing tinnitus.
A growing wisdom tooth feels like your giving labor in your mouth!!! Im suffering from it right now and i have contractions in my mouth. You can actually feel the tooth pushin…g its way through as well as moving the teeth to make room for your new tooth to come in. Here's some tips that helped me out when i can't get to the dentist right away. Tylenol 8hour helps alot, oragel severe pain. you can also use Tylenol rapid release tabs. they work really fast!!! gargle with warm salt water several times a day. This keeps it nice and clean because sometimes when the gum cuts to come through, the tooth or gum will bleed or fill with pus. It sounds gross cause it is. that's where the gargling comes in. You can also get a heating pad and place that on the side of your face that hurts. Eat something cold like ice cream. I ate something hard today to kind of speed up the process OUCH!!!! but it kinda helped. Unfortunately your gonna be in for a hell of a lot of pain, but if you can get to the dentist go. itll save you a lot of pain and anguish. GOOD LUCK. YOUR GONNA NEED IT.
I cannot be medically sure of this, but I believe it may be true. Part of the risk of having your wisdom teeth removed is their proximity to part of your sinus cavities, which… run much farther around your head than you may realize. If these are putting pressure on your sinuses, it could probably cause sinus-related pressure and pain. I just had 3 of 4 wisdom teeth out this morning, and I can't be sure yet, but there seems to be less pressure in my head/sinuses.. As I said, I cannot be medically sure, but it makes sense.
floods and clogs run about the same
like a normal gum, but with a dip in it (where the tooth has been pulled and then healed over)
It is a different experience for each person. i am 15 years old one of the youngest to get the surgery done and my experience was not half as bad as all the people telling …me how horrible i was goanna feel. but really theres nothing to worry about, i would advise getting knocked out fer the surgery because lemme tell you i remember nothing about it! one minute i had the i.v in the next i was gettin up and all done! plus if yu can i asked fer 2 extra shots to numb my pain fer 4 more hours and that helped so much! in fact the first day was the best day!
it hurts a lot unless you are asleep. if you are sleep then you don't feel a thing until you wake up. If the surgeon has much care for the patient, they will make sure you are… always not feeling anything if you do not go to sleep. That means they will ask you to tell them if you do feel pain so they can numb you more. If the surgeon does not care you are feeling pain (not movement, but pain) I would not recommend that person to anyone. But yes, going to sleep is the best. The time frame after the surgery is really where most of the pain comes from, swelling and pain is very normal. It can be only a few days to even a week is VERY normal. Each person is different, each tooth is different depending on tooth location and near nerves. Always give yourself a window of a week you just may not be going to school or working. Things to help is ice the first day, then moist heat after that. (ice is only good the first 24 hours) Laying flat will rush blood to the area so try to sleep elevated. After 24 hours try to use the jaw often, chewing etc. even if hurts.. you do not want it stiffing up more. Rinse with warm salt water, good healer. Try to keep area clean with SOFT tooth brush or gauze. Keeping bacteria off is a good thing. It can happen you are doing well then all of a sudden on the 4th or 5th day you swell again. Not to all this happens but it can so keep that in mind. It is not the surgery that is so bad, it is the recovery like in all surgeries.
old filllings can be covering up progressed decay, because bacteria or food particles can become trapped, the tooth may have cracked, and this can cause all kinds of discomfor…t and pain.
The inside of my mouth is pretty swollen. I can see the stitches and the skin around it is tender and swollen. The outside is puffy with some green bruising.
You should have them removes cysts can become infected and you will have a bigger problem then you have now.
Many people say that they encounter lots of problems right after their wisdom teeth grew Do wisdom teeth always cause problems?
No. If there is enough room they will usually come through into a useful position and cause no more problems than any other tooth. Often there will be some slight discomfort a…s they come through, but this is only temporary and will disappear once the tooth is fully in position.
If pieces of the wax break off and fall into the canal, surgery is needed to remove it. Yes it can.
There is no "look" to it. It's painful, swollen and requires antibiotics up to and until the point where the oral surgeon can now remove the wisdom tooth, once the antibiotics… have taken affect. Consult your oral surgeon about this.
