No wisdom teeth do not cause all over body pain. A dental infection that is very serious and has allowed bacteria to enter the blood stream can cause these symptoms This is called sepsis. You would be very ill if this were the case

Do you know why else i could be having these aches?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 3 months ago.

All over body aches can be a sign of a viral infection beginning. Its not due to the wisdom teeth

I also have pain in my jaw and a saw gum. Looks like wisdom teeth are coming in and a viral infection at same time. Lucky me
