My dad has swollen jaw and lip
This question is for my dad. He wears false teeth. The swelling occurs in his left jaw and upper lip. His upper lip is swollen really bad, but not really painful. It goes away in about 3 to 4 days. Help if possible.
Your father should be evaluated by a prosthodontist.
