Vague: Call oral surgeon/dentist whom removed the teeth. Could be a dry socket, residual infection or possibly a TMJ/TMD issue. Do so asap.

See dentist: As I write this, it is 04/11. I assume you problem is resolved. If not, see an oral surgeon.

Contact OS: Were all the wisdom teeth removed? If the area is problematic have the oral surgeon or dentist evaluate the area to make sure that is tooth related and not ENT problem.

See your DDS or OS: Like any surgery, wisdom tooth extraction carries risks and complications. See your dentist or oral surgeon for post-op evaluation and x-ray.
