    Hi all,

    I had my lower right wisdom tooth removed 7 years ago. Due to it being impacted and infected a lymph node came up below it on jaw. I had it out but the lymph node comes up and I get swelling around the area quite alot.
    My question is does anyone experience similar issues? I've had an X-ray and the oral surgeon can't see any sign of infection or root or tooth debris. I've also been checked out by an ENT. So I'm a bit confused. Could there be a hole which is allowing bits of food in?
