I just got my 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed on monday. 8/12 there's a bump on my cheek that formed and that side is swollen. Should i be worried?

Post op swelling: If the swelling occurred overnight on the day the wisdom teeth were removed, and it's going down each day, it's probably normal. If the swelling has increased then you definitely need to call the surgeon and let him\her know. It might be infected. No matter what, we cannot tell you for sure what's going on. Therefore you need to call your surgeon right away. ...Read more

If not then call them and ask for a prescription. Either way this problem needs to be addressed asap. ...Read more

Why do they recommend removing all 4 wisdom teeth if only one is impacted?

Recovery/immune syst: If you develop problems with the other wisdom teeth at a later time, then you will have to undergo all the procedures again. If one tooth is taken out, then the other extractions may take longer to heal, the bone can get denser and thicker (if a long time between extractions,) and one surgery is just more efficient for you and the Dr. ...Read more

Do impacted wisdom teeth cause crowding and damage other teeth?

Do impacted wisdom teeth cause crowding and damage other teeth?

Possibly: Impact wisdom teeth probably do not cause crowding of the teeth in the front, because the wisdom teeth would need to push on the 2nd molar, 1st molar, 2nd premolar, 1st premolar, canine and the incisors. Some people believe the wisdom teeth do cause the crowding but people without the wisdom teeth can still get crowding in the front teeth. Sometimes the wisdom teeth cause damage to the 2nd molars. ...Read more
