Post Low grade fever from tooth extraction?

Is this normal? I had two top teeth extracted on Friday and today my cheek is so swollen and I have a low grade fever. Is this a sign of infection? http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif
Please help

Wink

it is normal to be swollen after having a tooth pulled i would call your dentist about the low grade fever though just to be safe. try putting ice on your face where it is swollen. hope things work out for the best for you

I agree, you should call your dentist. He might want you to start antibiotics.

Good luck

Thanks guys for your replys. I started on an Biaxin 500 mg today.My face is still a little swollen but thank God no fever today. Maybe it all has to do with not having the epinepherine in the novacane this time around because this stuff never happened to me before.
