5 days ago removed two impacted wisdom teeth. Left side is healing great, while the right has a swollen lymph node on the jaw. Slight throbbing :( ?

Infection: The swollen lymph node is a good indicator of infection. If you got antobiotics from the sutgeon the day of your surgery and have been taking them then they may not be effective. If not then call them and ask for a prescription. Either way this problem needs to be addressed asap. ...Read more
