If you wisdom teeth were way back, you might have a sore throat, because the healing is happening back there and the pain will last a few days to a week.

But the sore throat can also be related to a cold that you are having at the same time.


I was 30 years old (very healthy) and I didn't have a sore throat, with my wisdom teeth extraction, but did feel like I had the flu. My head, body, ears, and lymph nodes ached for 3 days afterward. Antibiotics, sleep, and a cold pack for exterior swelling/discomfort are *key*.
