I still have a lot of pain after having my wisdom teeth out a week ago. Is this normal?

Depending on how many teeth you had removed and how difficult their removal was, you may expect to still have pain after a week. However, your pain and need for pain-relief medications should lessen every day after the procedure. If this is not the case and your pain is the same or getting worse, you should check with your dentist or surgeon. You may have an infection or a dry socket, which will need medical attention.
