I think I have infected teeth/ gums, went to dentist about upper last tooth I have left, giving me grief with infection. Xray showed nothing. Went to endodontist, he found nothing on top but said bottom end one I have left is cracked and needs pulled. I had it pulled. Think it is infected in that gum area and top above as I first reported. Went back to dentist who pulled the tooth and said I have infection, he said no it is dry socket. It has been two and a half weeks, still have what I think is an infection. I have noduals that appeared on gums under tongue, before tooth pulled, 2 on each side and my cheeks are swollen and thick, before tooth was pulled as well. I am concerned about the thick cheeks, would this be related to infected mouth or some other health issue. I am having thyroid trouble as well?

I am a 45 year old male. I recently had a tooth pulled and a bridge fitted. One of the teeth that the bridge is on has been hurting since the other tooth was removed. I went back to the dentist and the x-rays showed no issues. What could be causing the pain? What are my options, I cannot afford another bridge.
