Pain and bleeding after wisdom teeth removal. X-ray normal. Cause?

I had my wisdom teeth removed about 3 years ago, they healed fine. However, several months later the area where the back left wisdom tooth caved in, became very painful, and bled. It went away after a week or 2, but it reoccurres every couple months still. My dentist did X-rays but could not find anything in the gum. What could be causing this?

hello and welcome to hcm forum,
i would be glad to answer your query, i would like to inform you that due to food impaction and poor oral hygiene, chances of infection and swelling increases.
i cannot assure the cause behind recurrent pain and swelling until checked clinically.
i would advise you to see an oral surgeon, get a thorough dental check up done.
until then, warm saline rinses(3-4 times/day) will help in pain relief.
use an antibacterial mouth wash(betadine) , 2 times/day.
i hope i answered your query,
i wish you good health,
take care.
