I had all four wisdom teeth removed six days ago. They had not surfaced through the gums. The extraction sites are still aching up to this day. I also get nasty taste from the socket on the upper right side. It tastes like salty metallic. When I poked it with finger, I noticed an awful smell. Is this a sign of an infection?
I also can’t open my mouth to fit one finger in between my top and bottom teeth. The told me to use heating pad on the and stretch it out a little wider and wider. I’ve done this but it has become more painful. I felt like every ligament in my jaw was being torn. As a result, my face had become worse. Is it possible that my tendon was ripped off? When can I expect to feel better? Thanks so much for your time.
