Hi, I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed 2 1/2 weeks ago. Lots of swelling and some nerve damage due to the lower 2 wisdom teeth being impacted badly. The dental surgeon said it was hard work removing the lower 2. I went back a week later to have the stitches removed and he said they were healing nicely. The swelling has pretty much all gone away. I had oozing of awful tasting and smelling gunk for 2 weeks but that has pretty much all settled down (however I do have a slight awful smell in the mornings after I've slept, so perhaps there's a bit of oozing still). The last few days or so I have had quite bad pain on my lower right jaw (this side oozed the most). Not bad enough to take pain relief but pretty painful when I eat, yawn and swallow. It starts around the right gland under my chin (which hurts to press) and I feel it beside my ear (like earache) and it really hurts to open my mouth which makes it difficult to eat larger things (bananas are tricky)! I can't open it enough to clean the other bottom molar on the other side. I've been trying to gently force it open a bit, holding it open and the pain does seem to lessen a little as I do this (if I hold it open for 30 seconds). I am still brushing after all food and doing salt washes after all food. The numbness/ tingling was checked by the dental surgeon and he said it would recover in time. Is it normal to still have this jaw pain on the one side (which in my opinion is worse than it was a week ago)? It isn't painful 70% of the time if I am resting my jaw and sleep is no issue. Sore to touch and to use, if that makes sense!
