Hello , I am 20 years old and just had 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted around 11:00 am. I didn't really feel good and around 9 I started throwing up and again at 10:30. I rinsed my mouth with salt water the first time and spit a bit and now I'm just drinking water. Should I be worried ?

Hello there,

Welcome to the forum,

Wisdom tooth extraction are often associated with symptoms like pain, swelling, nausea, dizziness, fever, malaise.
You don't worry about the symptoms as they will subside after sometimes.
After the extraction healing process start & there is increased salivation so you feel nauseating. A complete wound healing takes place in 3 months, but the symptoms will subside in 1-2 weeks.

I would suggest you to follow the post extraction instructions given by your Dentist properly.
-Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics prescribed to you.
-Take lukewarm saline rinses 3-4 times daily to give a soothing effect.
-Take antiseptic mouthwash rinses like chlorhexidine 2-3 times to prevent
superinfection and promote healing.
-Take semisolid diet, juices, soups for some days.
-Take complete rest, avoid anxiety and stress.
-Maintain a good oral hygiene.
-If the symptoms persists or worsen you can consult to the concerned Dentist
and get the checkup done.

Hope you recover soon!
If you have any other queries feel free to ask.

Take care!
Dr Qazi.
