    Massive swelling 3 weeks after wisdom tooth removal

    I got 3 of my wisdom teeth removed 3 weeks ago. The swelling and pain in 2 of them (upper right and upper left) subsided after 4 days. But the lower left had swelling and pain for almost 10 days.

    The swelling at the back where the wisdom tooth was supposed to be has now gone, but the teeth 2 molars away has a massive swelling that makes me unable to chew anything using the left side of my mouth.

    Is this normal? Or Should I be worried?
    I have already gone for a check up last week when the wisdom tooth swelling was also present. Now the wisdom tooth swelling is gone, and only this remains.

    I just had mine extracted last week. But only one was removed. This is too fresh for me so I can tell you that this is not normal if it has been 3 weeks ago. I'm currently on antibiotics but it's been 6 days and the swelling is gone already. Please get that checked ASAP! Good luck!

    Swelling after wisdom tooth removal is completely normal. Don't worry about it. Place ice pack over your jaw to reduce the inflammation. If the pain still persists, then visit your doctor again.
