Hi there ...it usually pains when something gets stuck there ...keep the area clean ...rinse your mouth with leukwarm salt water 3-4 times daily to potentiate healing...
Visit your dentist for follow up ASAP..
Take care ..!!
See in many cases it usually takes 3-4 weeks or so to heal properly, so don't worry about that, have faith in your dentist and visit him once and share your problem, he will surely guide you regarding medicine or any other thing needed, till than keep that area clean by betadine Gargle and regular brushing twice daily
Some pain and discomfort while eating can happen for a month after surgery, if the tooth was severely impacted. It is best to show it to the same dentist as he is fully aware of what is happening. He may take an x ray to see post operative healing and advice some anti inflammatory or muscle relaxant or some enzymatic preparation.
