Hi there...need not to worry ...it happens after wisdom tooth removal...it will be there for a maximum of 7-10 days ...
All you can do is keep that area clean... And rinse your mouth with leukwarm salt water plus a pinch of alum...to potentiate the healing ...
Take care ...!!
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure.It takes time to heal.So get it checked when you go for suture removal.There should not be any other complication like dry socket which intensifies the pain.So it needs dressing.The healing time is at least 15-20 days.
Usually it will b there for 5-10days depending on how difficult the extraction was.pain only when chewing may be because of the muscle spasm due to the injection.
