Dentist 's  Response
Difficulty in swallowing may be due to tonsillitis.
I would advice you to avoid cold fluids and bevearages and cold food items.
Also check your dental health by a dentist.
If your wisdom teeth are impacted,get them removed or flap overlying tooth has to be removed to enhance tooth eruption.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Tonsillectomy has to be done if symptoms persists.
Please do visit an ENT specialist regarding this.
Take care.
