Q.

Jaw Clicking

I had three Wisdom teeth surgically removed last week Friday. (Both top and bottom right) The bottom right toot was severely impacted. I am on the road to recovery, however My jaw clicks on the right hand side whenever I open it, it also feels rather stiff if I attempt to eat something that requires a little chewing, I can only really chew three or four mouthfuls, before my jaw starts feeling tired. Will these symptoms go away on their own, the click is rather irritating and I would love to eat something other than scrambled eggs or soup some day.

If the click started immediately after the op it is not normal.
Discuss this on your follow up visit to the surgeon.
