That’s due to inflammation for sure. Don’t worry it’s not going to weaken your eyesight or do any harm to you. Do warm saline rinses as many times as you can. You can continue your anti inflammatory medication for a few days more if you are uncomfortable. Otherwise it’s going to take a few more days to normalise.
Next Steps
Warm saline rinses as many times as possible
Health Tips
Avoid hard chewing food. Prefer soft diet for a few more days.

Hi, There will be slight discomfort while opening the mouth and while chewing your food. Follow the mouth opening exercises advised by your dentist. It will get back to normal after a few weeks. Take pain killer if required.
