Re: Jaw pain after wisdom teeth extraction

Hi there, i just got the same thing done around three days ago, evryone including me has had the same strained feeling in their jaw when there mouth is opened to wide aswell.

In an unfortunate circumstance i have an unusually small jaw, two regular surgeons would not perform the procedure do to this,i had to visit a "special surgeon" and the only complication was that anestetics do not have a dominant effect on my body. i find that i cant really open my mouth more than an inch before everything shifts and I get the same excruciating pain as you describe. after asking a few people i know who have had the procedure say this is not exactly normal. If you're cheeks are still rather large in size i would put ice on it and see if that helps.
