Why can’t I open my mouth all the way after wisdom tooth came in?

My wisdom tooth came in a week ago and my gums were very swollen and I couldn’t open my mouth all the way. Now the swelling is down, I’m able to eat again, and the pain is gone. But I am still not able to open my mouth all the way. What can I do to fix this?
