hi there. i had stitches with getting my wisdom teeth out. i was wondering, does it hurt you to open your mouth more than an inch b/c of your stitches? maybe it's just the position that mine are in, but it's excruciating when i try to open my mouth, even to get a toothbrush to the back of my teeth. and does anyone know how long these take to disolve? how long do you think i will have to be this way?
i think my sockets are okay. do you think your pain could be your stitches? from what i have heard dry sockets are excruciating all the time, until you get them packed.
wow daffy, you sound like you've been having a really rough time there. it has only been a week for me, but i am still having to eat soft foods too.(like stuff you don't have to chew.) i tried to chew some soft foods today, like macaroni and bread. i did it, but now i am paying for it. you poor thing, 2 weeks is a long time not being able to eat regular food.
i'm not sure about seeing the blood inside, but i would call the dentist about it. i plan to call mine tomorrow about the not-being-able-to-open-my-mouth situation, and the entire right side of my mouth and face throbbing. i mean it's my tongue, upper and lower jaw, my throat, my temple, my cheek, my ear, even into my neck at times. it's crazy.
good luck to you and ladida.

i'm glad you're feeling better. i feel the same way. i am finally starting to feel better after finding out i did have a dry socket and getting it packed. i am so glad it's all over and i never have to do this again. hopefully no other teeth ever. :P
