I have swelling, pain and a misaligned jaw 6 days after wisdom tooth removal. What can I do?
Doctor Answers 1
Pain, wisdom tooth extraction
Pain and swelling are maximal at about 48 hours after surgery. Pain and swelling should be going down.
I am not quite sure what you mean as a misaligned jaw, but I do not like the sound of it.
Please call your oral surgeon right away.
Best of luck,
