My daughter had 4 wisdom teeth removed a couple of months ago. She is now having a problem where her lower jaw is growing and causing her discomfort. Could this be related to the extraction and/or possibly hormones?
Please let me know, phone # 203-417-8045 or email ***@****
That probably isn't the case. I would go back to the dentist to get it evaluated though. It may be some small bony spicules that are appearing and pushing out from the gums. These bony spicule are small pieces of bone that are left in the socket after an extraction and the body will push them out as it heals.
