Q.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction - 2 Weeks Ago

I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled on the 1st of April, all were impacted.

The left hand side, where there was only 1, is FINE!

The right hand side, however, is STILL very sore and the lower RHS of my lip is also still numb. My jaw aches all day, every day and it still hurts to swallow and ''spit'' (like when you''re finished brushing your teeth).

I have been taken ibuprofen tablets since my prescribed pains meds ran out last week Tuesday.

Is this normal or should I go see the Dental Surgeon?

Thanks!
