Re: Swelling 1 month after wisdom teeth removal
I went in to see my oral surgeon who confirmed for me that I had an infection. Essentially some peice of food he suspects got lodged into the spot where tooth was taken from and caused a bacterial infection. The result was i'm on antibotics for a week, tomorrow he is cleaning it out thoroughly, and something about a small hole for stuff to exit from that i'd have to clean every evening. On the flip side, he said it isnt as uncommon as i may think and that i'd be fine, in fact he said the swelling would go down from antibiotics as it has already some to pretty much gone. Only thing now im wondering, and ill inquire tomorrow is if i can still eat regular foods if i chew on other side of the mouth. Had an amazing date planned for tomorrow night and without any swelling im hoping to still go on it, but i shall see.
