Not unusual: This is not that unusual but if the area is throbbing or you have fever or the chills a visit to the surgeon may be indicated to check for infection. Warm salt water rinses and more healing time might help as well. If there are stitches they can be an irritant until removed. Time heals all wounds, but not in the presence of infection! good luck! ...Read more

A long time!: A cyst, unless removed, will usually continue to grow. Also, an infection that goes untreated may continue to persist. If you are having pain that persists, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a dentist or oral surgeon, who can take the proper type of x-ray to view the area of your wisdom tooth to locate any potential problems/cysts/ or infections. Get thee to a dentist! ...Read more

Ok my dentist took a panarox X-ray and told me that I have a cyst next to my lower right wisdom tooth. What can I do to treat it?
