This is the 5th day after my wisdom teeth extraction and I went back to school and I noticed that my cheeks are a bit green. What is that?

  • It can be due to some bruise because sometimes while extracting the tooth, if it is difficult extraction then due to cheek retractor or some other instrument which is used for doing dental surgery can cause bruise. Some people have very sensitive skin and they bruise easily. The greenish color of the cheek should be fading within another 2-3 days. If it increases or persists after that then you can visit your dentist. In the meanwhile follow all the tooth extraction aftercare instructions given by your dentist. for more info on tooth extraction aftercare you can read this article....'s-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
