"Though he made a good impression, with only one visit, its too soon to have an opinion about Dr. Vatan. I do trust Dr. Woods' staff though and I will return.
I appreciated that Dr Vatan took the time to talk to me and explain what was going on in my and my son's mouths."
"It was quick and easy getting my regular cleaning. My mouth felt fresh and clean. Staff was polite and the gygenist was wonderful."
"My office visit was great! i was a little apprehensive because Mr. Woods retired, but Dr Vatan, micki, and the new office manager put me at ease. i had a great experience, so much so that i scheduled my crown replacement for two days after this visit."
I have extreme pain from the right side of my jaw that seems to be coming from the joint. It comes from right behind my molars. It is extremely painful to open my mouth more than an inch and to chew. I also have pain down the right side of my throat when swallowing. I still have my wisdom teeth (dentist said they would come in with no problem) This all started 3 days ago. Another thing i have noticed is it hurts less if I open my mouth while pushing it to the effected side. Could my jaw be out?
Without seeing you in person it is difficult to say what the problem is.however, based on your symptoms and what you described it is most likely pericoronitis, a gum infection around your wisdom tooth. If that's the case you need antibiotics and removal of your wisdom tooth as soon as possible.
