Question by KC: sticky teeth and thick saliva after wisdom teeth removal?
i had my wisdom teeth removed a week ago, and i find that my teeth kind of sticks when i clench them (and i feel like they move a bit), also my saliva is usually thick and tastes a bit weird sometimes coming from the wisdom teeth holes.
also when i brush the last tooth, there’s still some blood from it, is that normal?
also, i still have jaw pain and can’t open my mouth horizontally to smile, is that normal?

Till the healing is completed, which will take around 3 weeks, it is normal. Try to keep good oral hyg and do warm saline rinses for 2-3 time a day and strictly following instructions of dentist to avoid the infection. If you have pain and swelling along with above symptoms then you should visit your dentist.
