Hi, I got my first molar on my bottom right pulled about 96 hours ago. My face is still slightly swollen at times and this causes me to talk strange. People say they can't hear it but how I hear myself in my head sounds different, it's like my cheeks are acting strange. It comes and goes strangely, but when it's at its worst I'd rather not even talk because it's so uncomfortable and irritating.

Will this go away? I'm afraid it'll always be like this :(

It will definitely gradually disappear. You should be OK in a couple of weeks.
