Question:

Hello! I had one wisdom tooth extracted 2 1/2 months ago and I am still experiencing pain and swelling in my jaw. Is this normal?  I am now on my third round of antibiotics and things have not gotten better. The oral surgeon that did the surgery has not said one way or the other if this is normal. All that I have been told is that everything looks good. I don`t know how this can be good. I can`t help but wonder if he is not telling me everything that I need to know. I hope I can get some kind of answer from you!! Thank you so much!!

Answer:

I guess I have a couple of questions that you will need to ask yourself. Is what you are experiencing pain or a tingling sensation? Is your jaw visibly swollen or does it feel swollen? A nerve runs through your jaw and can come very close to or even touch many wisdom teeth.
