Inflammation?: How long ago were your wisdom teeth removed? Where is the inflammation? Are you in any pain? Is the inflammation getting better, worse or staying the same? The answers will determine what, if anything needs to be done. See the dentist who removed your teeth for an evaluation.

Very common: The inflammation, pain, swelling, redness and discomfort that follows wisdom tooth extraction is just a normal part of the healing process. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op appointment.
