I had my tooth next to my wisdom tooth on the top left side of my mouth extracted on monday. It seems to be healing fine but my now I cant eat anything I have to chew because I keep biting my gums withmy wisdom teeth. Will it the swelling in My cheek/gums go away or should I have my dentist do something about it?

  • it is because of the swelling in the extraction site that the gum biting is there. Moresoever as the molar has been extracted, the cheek in that area comes in and the biting takes place. You have to get the missing tooth replacesd to take care of this problem. For this either you have to for the fixed bridge or the implant. Visit your dentist and discuss the treatment options with him
