Needs Evaluation: The wounds from the extractions should have healed by now. If you are in extreme pain you must see your dentist and/or oral surgeon to be re-evaluated.

Sign of an infection: Intense, throbbing jaw pain, sometimes accompanied by a swollen face, is often a sign of an infection or abscess. Regardless of the type or cause, your toothache should be evaluated by a dentist through an oral examination and x-rays. See a dentist ASAP.

Reevaluation: Please return to the General Dentist or specialist Oral Surgeon who removed your wisdom teeth. He/she knows your surgical history better than anyone over the internet. You probably will require additional support and treatment.
