Q.

Wisdom teeth infection?

My wisdom teeth were removed two weeks ago, and the sticthes I can feel at least I know is out already. Yesterday I started having a sharp pain in my lower left jaw whenever I move it, my gums aren' t swolen or anything, it feels like it' s in my jaw itself. Could it be infection?

yes, an infection is a possibility. Return to your surgeon - he may need to place a medicament in the socket
