Thank you for your question, and sorry to hear about your symptoms. Having to have your third molars removed is, in general, not a pleasant experience for most people, and it is quite unfortunate to still be having some swelling this far out from surgery
. If you are concerned that you are having swelling in the area of the teeth that were extracted, you should speak with the dentist
or oral surgeon
who removed your wisdom teeth. He or she may need to examine you more closely, or may be able to answer your questions over the phone and be able to reassure you. From the symptoms you are describing, it is also important to point out that there are other things that can cause popping in the jaw. One of the most common complaints is temporo mandibular joint disorder syndrome, which can cause popping, clicking, headaches, and pain around the ears and in the jaw. It is quite common, and there are many things that can be done to help with the pain and symptoms, and you should discuss your symptoms fully with your healthcare provider to determine if there may be additional causes of your swelling and complaints. Again, please speak to your healthcare provider.
