Q.

Wisdom teeth

My son''s jaw has not been able to open properly for 2 months now. He is experiencing lots of pain in his jaw and in his ears. When he had an x-ray to try and find out what was wrong we saw that his bottom wisdom teeth were impacted. Is it possible for the wisdom teeth to be causing the problem with his jaw. I have not taken him to the dentist because he can''t open his mouth to have the wisdom teeth removed. Any insight that you might have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

yes the problem is most likely caused by the impacted wisdom teeth. Let the dentist see the x-ray to determine the course of treatment.
