post op wisdom tooth bad taste pain
I had my wisdom teeth pulled (well at least three of them that were not impacted) and here it is the fifth day and there is now a throbbing pain and bad taste with an odor. I guess my question is when do i start to worry about infection? I understand that there is usually pain but it went from mild pain to moderate pain and it seems to be getting worse. Is this a sign of infection and if so, what can be done, (besides pain killers and ibuprofen)?
