swollen tongue/mouth

On Friday had a wisdom 2 removed on left. Also had a filling on left and one on right and a scale and polish.

Since then haven't been able to eat other than soft foods/can't bite/chew.

Tongue is swollen - has teeth marks on it. And inside of cheeks have teeth marks.

Am speaking slightly strangely too.

Never had that much stuff done at once before - do you think it will calm down and is just my mouth in a bit of shock? Wasn't like this when I got the other wisdom tooth out.

It seems a bit odd that your tongue is still swollen. I think you should phone your dentist in the morning.

DH had two wisdom teeth out recently and said that it felt sore and he couldn't eat on that side for over a week. The tooth where you had the filling should have been better within 24 hours.

It may be that you have an infection. sad
