My bottom set of wisdom teeth are growing in and a few days ago I noticed that on my left side, the part of the gums in front of the (now) second to last tooth is swollen and soft and slightly painful to the touch. This makes it hard to eat on that side and I feel a constant presence of the raised gum. It is only on teh left side by the one tooth. I have no dental insurance right now and need to know if anyone can tell me if I need to seek emergency care. I have general medical coverage through my college but I don't know if they deal with oral issues. My bottom wisdom teeth are growing in straight and don't seem to be impacted...
