Hello doctor, from past 2 days, I am having a pain in lower jaw on left side, firstly it started around the area of wisdom teeth, so I thought its normal wisdom teeth pain, but from yesterday night I am having problem opening my whole jaw on left side, pain cheek, teeth, jaws, I can feel there is some swelling too. I am worried what is the reason ? What should I.do.?

Based on the description of your symptoms, most likely you have infection around your erupting wisdom tooth..... please get a proper clinical examination by a dentist and an x-ray called as OPG..... most likely you will be requiring removal of that offending tooth ..... other treatment options if possible can be suggested only after examination and X-rays..... Regards.....
Dear patient, these signs and symptoms are quiet commonly seen when there is an eruption of a wisdom tooth, you will need to visit a dentist, undergo a radiographic examination & start antibiotic coverage prescribed by your dentist, who will then decide whether this tooth needs to be extracted or any other alternative treatment plan.
Visit a Dentist as soon as possible
