My son ( 25) had all his wisdom teeth pulled but his jaw is still swollen and throbbing?
My son ( 25) had all his wisdom teeth pulled while he lived in Southern CA . He was gainfulluy employed & insured at the time, but a month later his jaw is still swollen and throbbing, and he now lives in Northern CA, because he was laid recently, hense no insurance what actions can they or should they yake to get help. * NOTE- The oral surgeon who removed the theet said that removal of these wisdom teeth was one of the most difficult procedures he's performed in 20 years. All post op instruction have been followed and meds have been taken . 1 post op visit and 1 addittional visit to teh surgeon was mad becasue of swelling and pain before moving to Northern CA. In all these cases antibiotics were perscribed, no xrays were taken, the DR. only opened his mouthand looked in. Thre's no gapping hole, just jaw selling and pain. I'm thinking major abcess. Please help guide me in the irght direction. Thansk You- Lisa Gomes
