Wisdom tooth extraction

I had my wisdom tooth removed about three years ago and now it seems as if I have a bone coming out from that spot. Today I started having a problem with opening my mouth wide. Its seems to be swollen and when i put my tongue on the spot its as if the wisdom tooth was never removed and feels like it is impacted. Every now and then I get a little throbbing and my jaw tends to lock up. Is this a bone spur? Also it seems as if I am starting to get a sore throat.

Dear An_248610:
I am sorry to hear about the problems you are having, however, there is not much that can be done without a proper examination. You MUST see your dentist and have him/her look at the situation and evaluate it. There are many reasons as to why you are having pain, and it should be properly evaluated.
Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
