Normal: That is not unusual. It should go away with time and if not, have your dentist take a look and see to make sure there are no problems.

Teeth pain after o/s: Frequently the adjacent teeth to the wisdom teeth will feel sore for a few days after surgery. Very normal. If you have severe pain, return to your oral surgeon for an post op check.

Very common: Your other teeth may also ache. This is called referred pain and is also a temporary condition. If concerned, see your surgeon.

Post surgery : You had surgery. Post-operative pain is to be expected, and should begin to ease off after 2nd day. If you have severe pain, bleeding, swelling, bad taste, foul odor, call your Dentist immediately.

Extraction pain: The dentist who removed your wisdom teeth is the one to discuss and prescribe pain medication with you. Call that office.
