See a dentist: You need to see a dentist for a clinical and radiographic examination to determine why you are having pain from your wisdom teeth. Before you can treat a problem, you first have to identify and diagnose the source of the problem so that the appropriate recommendations and/or options can be provided.

Depends: Perception and response to pain varies greatly from patient to patient. Whether or not your pain is normal or not may depend upon how long ago your surgery was performed, the level of difficulty required to remove the teeth, as well as the technique and experience of the person performing your surgery, and more importantly if postop instructions were followed. Contact your dentist or surgeon.

Pain relief: Stay on regular dose of rx meds, use icepack to help dull the pain. If it has been more than 2-3 days since the extractions you should call your providers office because you may have post op infection or dry socket.

How painful is wisdom teeth removal?

Depends: Any surgical procedure involves some level of pain or discomfort. The unknown variable is how each person defines or perceives pain and how they respond to it. Local anesthesia will be administered to numb your mouth during surgery. If you do not want to be aware of the procedure, ask your surgeon what types of sedation can be provided.
