In brief: Not uncommon

After the removal of teeth, and especially impacted wisdom teeth that are closely approximating the adjacent teeth, you may have sensitivity to hot and cold in the adjacent teeth, and may also feel as if your bite is off.
The discomfort can last for several days during your recovery but should improve over time. If it does not, contact your dentist or surgeon for follow up.
