Q&A: When will the pain end for the impacted wisdom tooth I had extracted 5 weeks ago?
Sorry to hear about your problem. Unfortunately without having your original xray to review I can only tell you that it is not uncommon to have a prolonged recovery time at your age with the removal of a difficult wisdom tooth. From what you described it sounds as if your doctor has done all the right things by taking a xray and placing you on antibiotics for a short period of time. I am sorry that they did not explain the potential for delayed healing prior to your surgery. In many situations it may take up to 2 minths to obtain a complete recovery. Good Luck
