  • if you are throwing up (vomiting)
  • if you have a fever
  • if you have pain that does not get any better, and it has been one full day (or longer) since your surgery
  • if your swelling is still getting worse, and it has been two days (or longer) since your surgery

Your dentist or oral surgeon will tell you exactly what to do.
