Hello, I am 29 male
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Pain is located at the back of wisdom tooth where there is a tissue flap
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 9 days ago.

Thank you for that additional information.

Expert:  wieyedoc replied 9 days ago.

Your pain should start to resolve shortly as the antibiotics take effect.

Once the infection is under better control then your DDS may want to do surgery to clean that area up.

If the wisdom tooth has not yet removed then, once things quiet down a bit, it may have to come out.

The good news?

You should start to feel better soon :-)

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick MD FACS

I wish you the very best .
