Question:
I had my wisdom tooth removed about 4 months ago and ended up in hospital 3 days later with a very bad infection.

Since then I have had lots of problems with eating, swollen glans and pain with headaches. I went back to my dentist and had my top tooth out right side and I'm still having problems.

I can't open my mouth well. ... Visitor from Australia

Answer:
The extractions have probably change your occlusion, which can be a common event that can wreak havoc for your tmj joints.

If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity issues that seem to be close to the jaw joint and ear, get some consults with a tmj or neuromuscular dentist.

They typically have assessment and diagnostic instruments and the experience required to measure even the slightest changes in occlusion.

Readjusting and normalizing your occlusion shouldn't be difficult... with the right dentist.
