    Hey everyone,

    I got my wisdom teeth surgery 5 days ago. I only had one (lucky me) so it was removed. It's been 5 days but Im still in
    pain. The pain isnt really on the surgery site. My teeth next to my wisdom teeth hurt so bad. Almost my entire half jaw hurts. Also I can see a hole in there and it worries me. The hole is right between the first stitch and second. went to see my dentist yesterday and he said its fine. But it doesnt feel fine... It hurts when breathe deeply. I dont know why my teeth next to my wisdom tooth hurts. Still have my stitches as well.
    Also posting a photo.

    All indications point to normal healing. Removing lower wisdom teeth are very traumatic and comes with longer healing time. Make sure you are not experiencing any swelling for this may indicate possible infection (very rare).
