Hello! I just had my 4 wisdom teeth extracted yesterday morning, and now it's been about 36 hrs later, and i noticed that when i bite down slightly in the back of my mouth my teeth feel kinda of sticky and weird, not sure why. Is this normal? I looked through the FAQs on this site and didn't see much about it!
THANKS! :)

Edit: I started rinsing my mouth regularly today with mouthwash/warm salt water hoping that would help but it hasn't...

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Yes this is normal. I don't know why it happens, keep the area clean by rinsing as you are and brush carefully when brushing your teeth. I hope everything else is okay and happy healing now it is over.

Thank you!!! That's a relief. Yes things are generally going well, the pain is manageable and the swelling is frustrating but not horrible- thx for asking! :D
