I had my wisdom teeth (all 4) removed last Friday (April 13th). Today I noticed it was a little more painful than usual. My very back molar on the right side feels a little lose. Is this normal? I mean my wisdom tooth on that side was impacted a little but not very much? It also bleeds a little. Are my teeth just re-aligning? Is this a cause for concern?

  • Some times when the wisdom tooth is extracted the pressure goes to the adjacent tooth and that is why it becomes mobile. You should not worry .Try to mainain good oral hygiene and do not irritate the tooth. Avoid eating from that side for a week. If pain increases or it becomes more mobile then go to the dentist. Till then do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day.
