can't open my mouth after wisdom teeth extraction
I have 5 teeth pulled out on Aug 6th (four wisdom, one fractured). Now the bruise and the swollen has gone. But every time I try to open my mouth, the right side of my mouth would be very hurtful. Now I can only open my mouth to the degree that to put one finger between the upper and the down sides of my teeth. Any wider than that would cause a lot of pain in the right side of mouth.
I'm still taking antibotietics every day. Could u tell me what might happened and what shall I do? p.s. I just moved to a different city than the one I took the surgery, so it's hard to find the original doctor to do a follow up test
now it's one month after the extraction. Things are getting a little better but I still can't open my teeth wide enough for a sandwich. Sth wrong with me. I'm worry about even a dentist can't do a good check cause I can't hardly open my mouth
