got wisdom teeth cut out 5 days ago and now having problems?

OUCH! Buddah is right--get to your dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, make up a mouth rinse of warm water and sea salt: about 1 tsp of sea salt in a cup of warm to hot water. Swish your mouth out with it several times a day until you see your dentist; it should help reduce the pain because the sea salt will clean out the dead tissue. If you don't have sea salt, regular salt will do.

Good luck!
