Thanks for writing to us.

Burning post extraction of roots of teeth is due to unhealed extraction socket.

Take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics.

Swish with lukewarm saline frequently.

Irrigate the socket with betadine and apply eugenol,lignocaine into the socket to enhance healing.

Meanwhile,rinse your mouth after every meals.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Avoid intake of spicy foods,smoking etc.

Take adequate rest ,avoid stressful jobs.

Hope this helps out.

Hi there,
Thanks for asking your query,

I think most of your pain is related to the fact that you are not taking any pain medication after having your root stumps extracted ,Antibiotics are often required to fight the infection.visit your dentist and he might put you in new prescription depending on the cause of the inflammation.

meanwhile maintain a good oral hygiene,
hope you will feel better soon,
