  • If mouth opening is restricted then it is difficult to remove the tooth and when swelling is there, it is not advisable to remove it. First you will have to get the swelling down and when swelling is gone and mouth opening is normal only then get it pulled out. For this you have to take medicines prescribed by dentist. So discuss with your dentist and discuss the treatment plan. Without clinical exam and history it is difficult to say as we are not aware how much swelling is there and how much restricted opening of mouth is there. for more info on wisdom teeth impaction you can check this article in our website...
