I am 29 years old and had my lower wisdom tooth removed eight days ago. They were horizontally impacted. My question is why am I still in pain? I do not have pain in my extraction site. The pain is in the hinges of my jaw and down in my jaw bone. My extraction site looks fine, pink healthy gums and it is not swollen nor do I have a fever, so it is not an infection. I was also on antibiotic for the first handful of days anyway. I got dry socket on one side three days in and still have packing in that spot (getting it out tomorrow), but the discomfort I am experiencing is on both sides of my mouth and since I had dry socket I know it is not dry socket pain. So, what exactly is going on here? How long recovery takes? Mine were difficult to extract and more invasive due to the fact they were horizontally impacted? Please help.
