Feeling tired after wisdom teeth extraction

Filed under: Wisdom teeth — mesasmiles @ 10:26 pm

Dr. Hall,
My daughter, age 21, had all 4 wisdom teeth removed 4 days ago. She says that she feels so tired all of the time, even though the pain is easing up. She states she doesn’t “feel like herself”, but can’t put her finger on it. Is this tired feeling normal after 4 days?

I wouldn’t worry about any tired feelings. Those feelings vary from patient to patient, and it’s not uncommon for that to last even up to a week.

The pain should be gradually going away, and the swelling should be going down each day starting usually with the third day.
