Question:
Extra wisdom teeth causing headaches? Two years ago I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth out. At that time, I was only 14. Now being 16, I am having awful jaw pains and severe headaches.

My lower back teeth are really hurting as well. Could this be because I have another pair of wisdom teeth coming in? Because I have heard something like that could happen. ...Visitor from NY

Answer:
It sounds like the extractions caused a change in bite (occlusion) that is now causing the neuromuscular symptoms of headaches and jaw pain.

Get some consults with dentists who routinely diagnose and treat tmj and neuromuscular disorders.

If possible, find dentists who have access to one or more of the technologies demonstrated in these videos:

Wisdom teeth aren't generally known to regrow, once they are extracted.
