Hi guys ....just wondering is it normal to have a little bit of pain 4 days after a wisdom tooth extraction ?? I can still feel it tbh a dull pain .... Just pressed my tongue against gum there and yes it's Def the pain iam feeling
I would think that would be very normal, as it was with me, because the tissues in that area were traumatized by the extraction, and need more time to fully heal. I'm sure that you'll continue to improve, but it you don't, you should call your dentist.
Completely normal. My experience has been that the pain actually gets a bit worse on day 3 and 4 (usually due to swelling and taking less pain medication).
Thank you guys for the replies
