See your surgeon: Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain, swelling, bad breath and infection following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. After that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. One month is too long. See your surgeon for evealuation and x-rays. Good luck.

Mouth pain: I recommend you see your dentist and may need an x-Ray to determine a cause.
