It can be normal. It's sometimes quite a surgery. If you are having any concerns, call you doctor. If it isn't getting better at all or starts to get worse, call your doctor. But some achiness and pain is sometimes normal for some people. Answer Sounds like alot of work was done to get your teeth out. Keep using heat, take some pain meds, and keep in touch with your dentist. Normally 7-10 days is recovery period, but you might have been a very difficult extraction.

Thanks for the feedback!
Should you be concerned if you start getting a horrible taste in your mouth three weeks after having your wisdom teeth removed?
Answer This sounds like a sign of infection, or at least tissue damage. You should see your dentist again, or your doctor if you would have to wait more than a day f…or an appointment. This is something that should probably be treated with antibiotics. At worst, there would be a simple procedure to drain any fluid or remove any damaged tissue. Either way, it should be looked at very soon, before it spreads. Bone infections are very dangerous and very hard to treat. And since your teeth connect directly to bone, an infected area there could easily spread to bone. And not necessarily the jaw. The bacteria will find a weak spot. If may start in the mouth but end up in the leg. See your dentist or family doctor.
Wisdom Teeth You may have had an infection or absess develope. That is what happened to me. Get in touch with your dentist. If they were packed they may nee…d to be cleaned out and an anti-biotic & pain killer prescribed. DO NOT WAIT!! Oral infections can spread throught your body and land you in the hospital!

no. but when you get the elastics in your mouth its a bit harder to open your mouth but you will be able to.
It has been 5 weeks since you had a wisdom tooth extracted and you are still unable to open your jaw fully could you have trismus?
Five weeks seems too long! I would seek a medical dr instead of the oral surgeon who did it in the first place. I have my wisdom teeth out two weeks ago and can onl…y open my mouth 19 mm....it hurts so bad, and they told me it was Trismus. My sympathies!
You had your wisdom teeth removed two months ago and you can no longer open your mouth as wide as you used to It is painful to try and do so That side of your cheek is also sensitive to the touch?
that is not a normal reaction post wisdom teeth extraction you should notify your dentist an check with other doctors, x rays will be needed to further examine the problem.
It has been a week since my wisdom teeth were removed and I still can't eat and I am having severe jaw stiffness and a lot of numbness is that normal?
Yes, actually. When I had all four of mine removed at once, my face remained swollen for about a week and a half. To help with the stiffness, try applying warmth to the …areas. As for eating? Are you trying to eat solid foods? You'll have to stick with a liquid diet for about two weeks. Soups and anything that's soft and requires relatively no chewing are best for you.
I had my wisdom teeth removed and am now having a problem opening my mouth all the way. Every time I try my mouth feels throbbing pain. Is this normal?
it is not normal
Is it normal for you to not be able to open your mouth to a certain extent without pain due to a locked jaw after wisdom teeth surgery?
Yes it is. Because your jaw is open very wide during the procedure it becomes difficult to be able to open your mouth very wide at all for a period after the surgery itself. …If the jaw or muscles are still hurting after two or three weeks, see your dentist or oral surgeon.
Depending on how long its been since your surgery, the smell could be from many things. If theres a smell and taste, it could be dissolving stitches.There is possible in…fection if there is smell and pain. Or it could simply be from the fact that the blood clot is causing smell.
Funny, I was just reading a book about it. Yeah, it does hurt for a while, but your dentist should have given you something for the pain. Take some pain killers.
yes. the swelling preventing your mouth to open is the first sign of healing and the inability to open your mouth is because of the location your wisdom tooth was removed. you… will gradually return to normal signaling the ending of the healing process.
it could be u have an infection or dry socket, if so go back to ur dentist and he may prescribe antibi's and pain relief. in order to assist the healing process. also its impo…rtant to keep ur mouth clean ie rinse mouth regularly with mouth wash etc especially after cleaning teeth. other than that, sometimes it generally could be that for you personally the healing process will take three weeks or so, every one is different!!!! good luck anyway!
depends what type of tooth but normally no.
I would avoid opening your mouth. because if you open your mouth it will hurt and it could get infected.
It may be painful and stiff to open your mouth, but you should be able to open it, even slightly.
