| | After wisdom tooth extraction
I'm new to this board, so my apologies if I do something stupid.
I have a question. I had my bottom left wisdom tooth out about 7 weeks ago. Apparently it was a 'nasty' (ie difficult) extraction. I've noticed that in the cheek area near the extraction site it kind of feels "swolen" (I'm not sure if this is the right word). It doesn't hurt or anything and I only really notice it when I actually put my finger back there to feel it. I went to a dentist last week and he told me that it was just scar tissue and/or the muscle back there sorting itself out.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has ever had this? Does it ever go away or is it there permanently?
Thanks for any responses,
