Wisdom teeth removal: The post-operative care is very important. Please follow post operative instructions to avoid unnecessary pain and the complications of infection. The swelling also can be minimized if the instructions are followed carefully. If any concerns. call your dentist or oral surgeon for post-op appointment.
