I've got a visdomstand out, have been told that there has been inflammation in it. My cheek is really big, like I have a tennis ball in one side of the mouth, a colleague says that it can be a blodansamling in my genre is that correct? If yes, when will disappear and you can do something even for that, it will disappear faster?



Dear Christina,

It is quite normal to raise up after a visdomstandsfjernelse. If you believe that there is infection, then you should contact your dentist immediately and get some penicillin for it. Typically, you will be uncomfortable with the fever if it is an infection. If it is general swelling, then there must not be anything, but be patient, it will disappear by itself. You can put a cold compress on the first 2 days after the tooth extraction, otherwise the heating cover the following days.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
