A female asked:

Is it normal to have mild ear pain and jaw discomfort on the left side of my face after 11 days of a wisdom tooth extraction?

Recovery period: after wisdom tooth extraction. The time needed for pain in the jaw and earache to disappear completely may be as long as 4-6 weeks. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op exam.

No: Please return to the Oral Surgical Specialist or treating General Dentist who did your extraction. There has to be a reason for the pain.
