I had my lower wisdom tooth extraction last week. I had bone cutting and stitches. Today is the sixth day of surgery, but I have severe pain even after taking pain killers. But there is no adequate response. I had five days of antibiotics too. Please suggest me what I should do?

Secondly, you need to visit your dentist who did the extraction as soon as possible, to look for any bony spicules remaining or if stitches are healing correctly or not.

Stitch removal, check for bony spicules, and irrigation.Preventive measures:
Avoid eating especially hot on the affected side.Regarding follow up:
Follow-up after having word with your dentist.
