    Wisdom teeth extraction
    Hi, I got my 4 wisdom teeth out sat, it's now wed and I still have a swollen face and some soreness around my jaw area. I can't really open up my mouth that much, so I can only brush some parts of my teeth. I'm using warm salt water to rinse but I have really bad breath, I'm hoping its just from not brushing my teeth?? How long does it usually take to be able to open your mouth to brush your teeth or even eat??

    No you don't open your mouth because you stop when it hurts, You can open your mouth, If you actually can't open, go back to the doctor right away.

    Just going to have to deal and brush.
