Thanks for the query.
It is common to feel nauseous and dizzy after the wisdom tooth extraction.
In most of cases it is due to the side effects of sedative in them,and antibiotics.
There is nothing to worry.
Just take complete rest.
You may take some proton pump inhibitor like PANTOPROZOLE 40 mg once a day on empty stomach ,for few days.
It shall take care of your nausea and acidity problem,if any.
Don't go out for work till you become totally comfortable.
Sometimes symptoms may persist for a week.
Keep in regular touch with your dentist.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
