Sounds like wisdome teeth to me.
My wisdome teeth started to bother me at about 16-17yrs old, and they STILL do (I'm 22yrs old now)
I have full intentions to get mine pulled, just never make the appointment to get it done. They get infected about twice a year and they cause pain about once every 3-4 months. They don't just come up then first time you get pain They sorta float around for a bit, coming up, going down.
I suggest you get it pulled. Actually if you don't pull your bottom wisdome teeth they can cause major problems later in life because there is a major nerve that runs right along that tooth.
I've only talked to two people about the procedure of getting them pulled. My hubby, who was in ALOT of pain, but also has a VERY low pain tolerance. My sister got all 4 of hers done at once with very little discomfort. She has a high pain tolerance.
