Is this normal after wisdom teeth extraction




Its been a week since i got my 2 wisdom teeth removed. My bottom left had to get stitches. Im not sure if its healing right. Im in little pain nothing too bad. My gums are still a little swollen and I've been getting headaches also a little sore throat. Is this normal? Should I make an appt.?

Hello, Your symptoms sound reasonable with the exception of headaches and sore throat but that could be a separate issue. I can't tell you for sure. I would strongly suggest you call your dentist and ask if you should make an appointment. Some dentists suggest a follow-up visit a week or so after to see if things are healing as they should. No one knows more about your specific case than the dentist who removed the teeth. Follow-up questions and visits should always be included in the fee.
