Yes a wisdom tooth that is coming out suppose to have skin on top of it. Before the wisdom tooth began to grow there was nothing but skin there. So in order for it to fully come in it breaks through the skin like any other tooth.

Is it true that your jawline will become a little smaller if you have your wisdom teeth extracted?

I recently had a large wisdom tooth removed from the top left and I reckon maybe it makes my jaw look very slightly smaller.AnswerThe most common reason of wisdom teeth extraction is that the jawline is already too small for them to erupt.The removal of any permanent tooth will affect the structure of the face. After all, the structure under the skin and muscle is bone and teeth. The differences are subtle, but it does change.

Could a small hard lump right below your ear next to your jaw bone that doesn't hurt be related to your wisdom tooth coming in?

AnswerIt could be related to your wisdom tooth coming in, but you also have lymph nodes in that area, too. If the lump has been there for several weeks and doesn't seem like a pimple or other minor skin irritation, I'd seek medical advice soon. Pain isn't always an indicator of a serious issue. It may turn out to be nothing at all, but it might give you peace of mind to hear it from a doctor. Another Answeri have the same problem but my dad wont take me to the doctor. the only difference is that sometimes mine will hurt alot.
