  • it is not clear from your querry which wisdom tooth is extracted because the cause can be reated to that. If you have the tooth extrcted and upper tooth is there then it can cause the swelling as it injures the gum. In that case the antagonist wisdom tooth has also be extracted.  The swelling can be there due to some infection or because of the impacted tooth which you can find out only after getting the X-ray done.for more info on dental topics you can browse our website.
