After you have wisdom teeth pulled is it normal for your eye to be bruised and your cheek to be swollen?

Yes, bruising and swelling are very common complications of wisdom tooth extraction. The swelling will be at its worst 48-36 hours after the extraction before it begins to die off. Apply an ice pack to the swollen area.

I hope I have been of some assistance.

It is not normal to have bone sticking out after wisdom teeth are pulled. It is normal to have stitches and skin that cover the bone, so it is a good idea to check with your dentist if you can see bone.

Sometimes when lower wisdom teeth are removed, the nerve that is used by the tongue is bumped or bruised. It is most often temporary, but it sometimes can take several months to heal. Let the dentist who removed the teeth know about this complication.

It happens. Was/is it a lower wisdom tooth? The inferior alveolar nerve travels through the lower jaw, this is the nerve the dentist "numbs" to work on a bottom tooth. Lower wisdom tooth problems often cause an ear ache. It could be an infection, it could be the nerve was bruised, it could be do to normal healing with a little swelling. Tell the dentist/oral surgeon.
