Please help! On friday i had all four wisdom teeth removed. By monday i was in immense pain and was diagnosed with dry socket in both bottom extraction sites. I have been treating it and all along since the removal, my bottom left jaw has been significantly more swollen than my right side. Now since the swelling has gone down i noticed a hard buldge in my cheek on the bottom left. I am worried. I don't go back in to see my oral surgeon until monday, and i am in imense pain. I was able to get a perscription for the pain until then. I just want to know what this hard lump in my cheek is???? Insight is much appriciated.View Thread
