Hello all I had my right top and bottom wisdom teeth removed 7 days ago, and I have not had much pain thank god, but when I rinse my mouth I don’t know if it’s the hole or my jaw that hurts for bit then stops, and my jaw still swollen some, I did not get stitches and my bottom was impacted so it was kind of tough getting out, had to numb it a lot!! Is this normal? Thank you

Hi Bigmarlon34, I can‘t tell you whether it‘s normal, but generally speaking everyone needs a different time to fully recover and un-swell. If there is a sense of change of the pain over the days then it might be a normal thing. If this bothers you too much, then calling your practice might be a good idea.
