Thank you for the query.
Pain in the tooth is mainly because of the seperation of the gingiva and trauma to the bone n tooth caused during the procedure . As you said you have taken ponstan and had relief for just 4 hrs . instead i would advice you to take ketorolac and antibiotic course which will relieve the pain , till the surgical procedure is being performed ,take care that you wont eat anything spicy or hard and very hot food .. put yourself on a soft diet .. if not able to take solid food you can take more amount of juices .Hope for the fast recovery .

Hello there,failure to successfully extract the tooth must have disturbed the attachment apparatus of your tooth which leads to pain.Till your scheduled date of extraction you can have a simple antibiotic twice daily to prevent infection and analgesics like NSAID's in combination with anti inflammatory enzyme three times daily post meal. i hope that information was satisfactory,take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain in the tooth is mainly due to unsuccessful attempt to extract the tooth which might have resulted in loosening of the periodontal ligament fibres.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics, till the surgical procedure is being performed.
Take semisolid diet.
Take lukewarm saline rinses and antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.
