Symptoms may appear seven to ten days after a surgical removal of wisdom teeth in Melbourne. The swelling and the pain are at their worst during three to five days after the procedure. The recovery is normal if painkillers alleviate the ache. But, if you experience any general symptoms like increasing swelling or fever, you have inflammation that requires treatment. In that case, you should contact your dentist. Usually, recovery after an upper wisdom tooth removal is quick, as long as you remember to avoid any vigorous activities, at least on the day of your wisdom teeth removal.
