Avatar n tn I have just had a tooth extracted (lower left not molar) last Monday the 12th and it has been giving me problems every since. Three days after I was in a lot of pain I called my dentist but I was told this was normal because the tooth had to be surgically removed and just take the pain medicine until my next appointment the next following Monday.
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago I had tooth #21 extracted. Several days after the extraction I did develop a partial dry socket that has since felt much better and the open hole is shrinking now. As the gums around the tooth socket continue to shrink/heal I have developed a very sore spot on the lip side of my gums 4mm below the edge of the socket.
Avatar n tn My mouth is still very sore the day after the tooth was pulled. I was given a pain killer and penicillin prescriptions.
1809287 tn?1316744936 about a week ago i had a tooth extraction done on my very back molar on my lower right side. the extraction went pretty well, although quite uncomfortable. afterwards, i felt somewhat okay, but about two to three days after i started to feel this uncomfortable pain in my lower jaw bone. the pain is felt in my jaw, my throat, my temple, my neck and my ear. i am having constant headaches.
Avatar f tn But still you are facing the pain after six month of tooth extraction, then you need a professional help to get relief.
Avatar n tn I was already given some AMOXICILLIN 500MG to take and started to take imidatly, however it is now tuesday and my face has been swollen and the gums near the tooth is all puffy and sore like i have thousands of mouth ulsers. i am getting worried as it really hurts. I have stopped taking the IBUPROFEN as i read this could cause face swelling. Please help, is this a rare thing that can happen after root canal?
Avatar f tn However, my cheek (on my jawline) is still swollen and puffy (not hard, just puffy), as are the gums around the extraction site and the tooth adjacent to the extraction site. When I brush around the wound, the wound itself does not bleed, but the gums beside it do bleed (minimally) and I'm scared. I had my tooth pulled at a dental school and because the tooth was "hooked", it took 2 students and 1 OS resident over 2 hours to get the tooth out.
Avatar m tn It should clear up on its own after the extraction as the tooth is the source of infection. It may take some more time to clear up. I would monitor it and see how it goes.
Avatar f tn I have never had such pain before after a tooth extraction. Why are my gum lines feeling sore. It is no where near the tooth extraction?

Avatar m tn I went to a dentist 2 weeks ago to do a regular check up because i felt a little pain and i noticed the upper left of my gums were swollen and around that area there was a hard lump on the gums where i had a tooth extraction a year ago. After the check up the female dentist told me that there was nothing wrong with my teeth and the lump was just the bone that was left after the extraction and the gums were swollen because of food touching the empty space of gums where i had the extraction.
Avatar m tn HI, A gap remains in the gums after tooth extraction. This can be stitched with sutures or it can also heal on its own. The only thing you need to be careful about is that there should be no infection. You can ask your dentist to have a look. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided.

Avatar n tn "This may seem weird but one thing I had not noticed until I got home today is that the tooth hurts when it is tapped on or near the sides BUT if I place my thumb under the bottom of that tooth to apply pressure and THEN tap, there is NOT ANY pain at all." Just read your comment how is your tooth now? Im experiencing the same problem after being preped for a crown on Friday. I have no lump or any facial swelling but by god am I in pain.
Avatar m tn Three weeks of pain after an extraction is a bit longer than usual. If it was a difficult extraction, generally there is more discomfort cause the surgery is more extensive. Have you gone back to your dentist to see what may be causing your pain? Its a good sign though that the pain has decreased. It sounds like it is healing although its a bit slower than one would like.

Avatar f tn I am just finishing up amoxicillin. My gums on one side of the extraction site is puffy and tender. Is this normal after so much time as past? The dentist took an x Ray last week (five days after extraction) and said all looked well.

Avatar m tn It was the right upper wisdom tooth. In the same day after my wisdom tooth extraction, I developed nasal congestion in the right nostril. From that day till now, the nasal congestion has been present everyday and it alternates between nostrils from time to time. I've visited the ENT twice. The first time, the doctor did a nose scope and confirmed that my nose was congested. She then prescribed me Nasonex nasal spray to be used for 6 weeks (2 puffs in each nostril, once a day).
Avatar n tn I recently had a wisdom tooth removed (tooth #1) because of decay. The tooth was errupted and the removal was done in the dentist's office with novicaine and had no complications. After receiveing the bill, I realized that the dentist had charge for the extraction as well as an alveoplasty.
Avatar f tn This may be Trigeminal neuralgia as you have typical one sided facial pain extending to temple and eye( ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve may be involved) and sore gums of the teeth of same side (maxillary branch of 5th nerve). Trigeminal neuralgia may have a triggering factor like recent history of tooth extraction, touch, cold breeze or hot sensation etc. which you need to evaluate and avoid.
