He was awake for the procedure because the oral surgeon said that when they started to put him under his blood pressuure dropped very low. Three days after the extraction he started to have a severe headache. We went to see the doctor but he said everything was fine with his teeth.
I've been having this pounding headache on the left side of my head for about 2 weeks now. It is severe during intimate moments with my partner and also when I read for long period. I'm diabetic and on Glucophage 850 and Vitoryn 10/20, for my cholestrol. During the headache, my jaw tightens up and also painful. Hope someone can help me understand what's going on with me. Regards.
The dentist was very young at least under 30 she stuck me with the needle and proceeded to pull my teeth, this is where things got ugly. FYI I got 4 wisdom teeth removed 8 years ago with no problems a little pain but I didnt feel nothing, honestly I felt good during the procedure. The doctor took her tool that looked like a pliers Im sure its a different name for it, and started to yank out my teeth, I'm 26 and let me tell you I cried 3 times..
However, on the night after my surgery, a huge, golf ball sized lump appeared in my lower left cheek (different from the normal swelling associated with wisdom teeth extraction). It is pretty much on my jaw and some of my cheek. It is hard to the touch and is not painful, but I feel a lot of pressure from it and its edges are a bit tender. All my swelling went down after the third day of recovery, but the lump is still there and is making my cheek look huge and swollen!
Went back when that didnt work and now he's able to find that the root is fractured. So now I'm left with implant, bridge, or extraction. A bridge just does not sit well with me because I'd have to basically crown the neighboring teeth and it seems like that is the slow road to dead teeth. An implant will be expensive (insurance doesnt cover) and I've heard they do not always take.
In stead, occlusal interference is the common source of temporomandibular disorder,which is significantly associated with headache and orofacial pain.However, extraction of wisdom tooth can provide many long term benifits.

Hi, please help asap. Last Tuesday I had a 2 teeth taken out on my lower jaw on my left side. I had a wisdom tooth and a molar tooth taken out both in one go. Ever since the surgery, I have suffered excruciating pain! Even when taking ibuprofen, the pain still continues. I have tried the strongest paracetamols and ibuprofens, but it doesn't seem to help much. What are my options?
On Wednesday I had 11 upper teeth extracted and bone grafts performed. 3 were almost surely surgical due to older root canals. A temporary denture was placed until the grafts have healed then I will get the permanent full denture. I'm wondering how long I can expect the pain to last. I was prescribed Vicodin and am using Ibuprofen also. I'm still unable (or unwilling) to chew due to the pain.
I searched online and did not find anything suggesting a sinus infection can be caused by a tooth extraction. I read Sinus Infection on Mayo Clinic 's website and it describe more serious immune system problems can cause it , now i am really freaking out. It has been about 7 days now , anyone got any opinions or advise ? I never had this before and if anyone has any opinions , please help. Symptoms : Nasal Congestion , Serious Headache , Body Aches , Pain near eyes , Upper Jaw pain.
Hello all, I had 2 teeth extracted a week ago today and I am still in pain. I went to the dentist 3 days ago because I thought I may be developing an abcess. Although, it turned outthat my stitches were a bit too tight and it was causing my tissue to grow in funny. My dentist removed the stitches causing some renewed bleeding. She did say everything seemed to be healing nicely. After the stitch removal I had to return to gauzing my mouth. After about an hour the bleeding subsided.
Yes it can cause headache pains and it could be the source of a bad taste. More importantly, how is your oral hygiene on a daily basis? If you have a bad periodontal problem, there can be some gum recession resulting in areas where food can get stuck easier, resulting in bad taste and bad breath.
i have a horrible headach ever since my wisdom teeth were pulled...any ideas...my dentist is stummped and I feel like im going to lose my mind with the pain!!!
Hi raquel Yes I also have a history of trigeminal neuralgia which got started after I went to a dentist for cleaning my teeth. My case was very special since it started @ a age of 18 and i had only mild attacks. My pain stopped within 6 months. I started with 900 mg of carbamazepine daily and today after 10 years i just take 100 mg once in a week. Now I don't have any pain attaks.
Tooth extraction is rarely associated with onset of headache. On the contrary, extraction of upper wisdom tooth is commonly associated with long term relief of headache. Seeing a headache specialist or orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Well it was pain through out the left top and bottom jaw and it felt awful, it made the whole left side of my face hurt (including gums, teeth and even a headache). The other thing I noticed is when I was racing up the stairs my heart was racing and one of my molars (crown's) on that same left side was throbbing to the rythm of my heart beat. I noticed I can't lift anything heavy or bend down to reach something because my crown on the top left starts to hurt.
Your headache may come from the change of occlusion after extraction of wisdom teeth. Your condition is not uncommon. Seeing a tmj specialist is advised.
They decided to extract the molar. It was a very difficult extraction. About 2-3 days after I noticed that the lymph nodes are still swollen, and now to add to it I have horrible pain that radiates to my ear, usually causes headaches, and all the teeth surrounding the socket throb and throb and throb it NEVER ends. This has been going on for about 4-5 days now. What is this? Please help.
The tooth and jaw pain is significantly worse when I lay down or bend down. Also, if I drink anything hot or cold. My upper 6 front teeth are part of a bridge. He did an x-ray of those teeth and did not see anything immediate. All pain is on the right side. He made me a mouthpiece to try for few days at night to see if I am clenching/grinding my teeth. He talked with me about the possibility of needing a root canal on front tooth under bridge or the possibility of trieminal neuralgia.

Hi, I have posted in the Headache Forum, but wanted to get some insight. I appreciet anyone's input. I have had a headache now for about 12 days straight, no relief, the pain is completely unresponsive to anything I have taken (from Vicodin to Imitrex, to Motrin.). I have also been on an antibiotic for almost a week now. I have NO prior history of headaches and have had mostly a complete medical work-up, all results normal. This is my fear...
Is it safe to take Asprin with oxycontin, because I have been right when I wake up for the pain of the headache as well (usually 2 reg asprin). 3. I checked my pulse at the RiteAide down the street recently and my bloodpressure was very low, but my pulse rate was very high - what is this due to? Is this also very dangerous? Thank you very much, please I need a quick answer to this question.
His current symptoms could well be from the vaccinations he had just prior to the teeth extraction. The combination of the vaccines with surgery and anesthesia. That he was on IV fluids tells me that he might have a history of reaction to vaccinations? One of my cats does and she needs subcutaneous hydration before any vaccinations. But given that he did have IV fluids, I am not as concerned about dehydration, but still would try to encourage him to eat and drink.
My husband had 2 upper teeth extracted a week ago. 2 days ago he started getting headaches. Now it is severe. Light hurts his left eye (the side of the extractions). Under his eye hurts - almost like a sinus infection but with no other symptoms of that type (no congestion). The left side of his head hurts and above his left ear. I didn't think it could be an infection because he is still on penicillin that the dentist gave him. Tylenol 3 doesn't work either. He can't sleep.
1) Is it possible that the deeply impacted infected wisdom teeth were the cause of my chronic pain prior to extraction? 2) Is it normal to be experiencing headache/stiff neck/oral pain 9 days after a complicated surgery? 3) This pain went on for so many months, so is my recovery going to be fast or gradual; and how long is complete recovery from such a surgery? Thank you so much for your time.
