New teeth?
Hi, I am 27 years old, and about 1-month back I found swelling at the back of my mouth (top jaw - at the back - both sides). Now it has a hard bony feel to it, and the glands at the bottom of my jaw feels tender. Could these be new teeth or must I go to a dentist to check it out?

It is possible that they are wisdom teeth. It is better to check it out with x-rays at your dentist.
