4 days ago I finally had my impacted wisdom tooth removed. I was very nervous but got through it. I'm now very anxious about the recovery. My jaw still feels very stiff and although the swelling has gone down I still can't open my mouth fully. When I do open it, my jaw deviates to the right quite significantly (extraction was on left side) and I still can't open my mouth fully. The pain is better than it was. Will this rectify itself or do I need to see dentist again? Thank you for your advice.
