They are usually not visible as their placement under the gingival tissue. Wisdom tooth are notoriously known for usually growing out in later stages of the life cycle, mostly not sensed/visible as a certain pain or pressure is associated when it’s grown out, usually in ages 16-24.

Identification through X-rays and other scanning equipment are also put to great use while investigating certain dental problems.
Gums are highly affected when there’s an indication of a developing, problem causing wisdom tooth. Pericoronitis, a state where the gums get swollen behind the last visible molar, moreover pain/pressure at the area where it’s present as well as an unpleasant taste and smell associated. The cheek also gets affected due to its linkage with the jaw and gum tissues, and the pressure may lead towards the ear, which leads to further discomfort. These symptoms, having had elements of pain and pressure attached act as signals for them to be treated and taken care of with instant action, since if this is prolonged, the case may get worse, therefore, instant action is required so the uneasiness is taken accommodated as soon as possible.
