I had all for wisdom teeth removed exactly a week ago right now I am suffering from a burning sensation in my lower gums, there is also some swelling as well as strong pain on my lower right side. What could be causing this? I've been rinsing with salt water, brushing my teeth, making sure to clean holes of any food, and icing constantly .

  • After one week of extraction if you have pain and swelling even after a week of extracton  that means you may have developed a dry socket or your extraction socket has got infected.. Iti s better you visit your dentist  and get the diagnosis made. If it is dry socket he will clean the socket and put the dry socket paste in it.
