So I got all four of my wisdom teeth out 4 days ago and the pain is now becoming manageable when I eat more regular food. I had a bowl of cereal and was using my tongue to get some of the bigger crumbs before I did my salt water rinse and I felt something weird along the bottom right extraction point. My right cheek has been swollen on the inside more than my left. I took these two pictures (both of my right bottom extraction point). I have dissolvable sutures, but I was wondering if my oral surgeon accidentally sutured my cheek to my gums or could it be the start of a dry socket? It doesn't hurt when I smile, laugh, cough, sneeze, etc. What should I do? Thanks!
