I had all four wisdom teeth extracted seven days ago and still feel not quite right in my head (groggy/woozy). Is this normal and how long will it take to feel normal again? I am 29, 5ft 10, 11stone and take fluoxetine 20mg 1x per day
Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes, it is normal.
Extraction of wisdom teeth is often associated with post complications like fever ,nausea and vomiting.
After extraction , the healing process starts and there is increased salivation due to which you may feel nausea and vomiting.
Due to reduced apetite and low intake of diet you may feel hyperacidity and vomiting . Fever can be reactionary symptoms or sometimes infection of the extraction socket may lead to pain and fever.
Continue with the course of antibiotic and analgesics prescribed to you along with paracetamol .
If the symptoms do not subside in 3 to 5 days you need to consult your dentist
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Wisdom tooth extraction is often associated with post extraction complications like pain, swelling, fever, malaise.
You dont worry about the symptoms as they will subside after sometime.
Follow the post extraction instructions given by your Dentist properly.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash gargles.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.
Post-extraction of wisdom tooth is usually associated with complications like-
Fever,headache,nausea,dry socket etc.
Normally 2 weeks time required for complete healing of socket since you had got all the 4 wisdom teeth removed at the same time.
Use warm saline and betadine rinse to gargle.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Brush and floss your teeth daily.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Avoid anxiety and stress.
Take complete rest.
Hope this helps.
I understand that you underwent impaction surgery. Impaction surgery involves bone trimming so there are associated symptoms like pain and swelling post surgery. Were you apprehensive or tensed about surgery? The feeling of weakness can be because the surgery itself is a little taxing and post surgery you need to be on liquids.If the symptoms persist I advise you to check with your physician
Thanks for asking query,
Wisdom tooth extraction is a complicated surgery and is often associated with swelling , pain , fever, dry socket , numbness in tongue , lip and check of the same side.
I suggest you to visit dentist get it clinically and radio graphically checked,maintain oral hygiene, gargle with warm saline water 3 to 4 times a day , take tab augmentin 625 mg twice , tab ebility thrice use antiseptic mouth wash. avoid stress.
hope this will help you.
do you have this problem after your wisdom tooth extraction? from when are you taking fluoxetine? have the extraction wounds healed properly? are you under medication other than fluoxetine?. expecting reply to answer. take care.
dont worry, generally 7-10 days are needed for proper healing after wisdom tooth extraction. Just try to maintain good oral hygiene and things will be better in a day or two... if the problem persists than arrange for a visit to ur dentist for a followup!
dont worry about the swelling if wound is healing properly. swelling is always expected after extraction of wisdom tooth since little bone may be cut off while extraction. your woozy feel in your head may be probably due to fluoxetine, it is an antidepressent. if wound is healing progressively dont worry you will be alright soon. and about flouxetine, it has many adverse side effects please consult your physician and follow that drug on his prescription alone. take care.

Hello, I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted Wednesday June 22. It is now Tuesday June 28th and I am constantly getting shivers / a feverish feeling then falling asleep for several hours. Once I wake up the shivers are gone and I feel normal but also weak. There is no pain in my mouth and the shaking has been going on since Sunday June 25th approximately 1-2 times in a day.
Hi, I got my wisdom teeth out a week ago today. I had dry sockets and was in a lot of pain. Yesterday I began feeling like myself again but woke up not really having a voice and I was frequently coughing...I have been coughing for the past day or two and it really hurts in my throat . It s not a very active cough...a little bit of mucus but not much. Am I just getting sick? Is this normal? And what do you do for a painful cough? Thanks!
Hi, a week ago I had my 4 wisdom teeth extracted. My ear hurts like I have an ear infection. But the worse thing is I ve feel weak & breathless for two days straight. Why do I feel like this? I finished a course of amoxcilin and have been taking panadol. Thank you
I underwent angioplasty in Feb 2008 and 2 stents were placed. I am on cardace 10, stamlo 5, clopact 75,ecosprin 150 and atorvastin Ez (all one tab each). I require a tooth extraction for which the dentist has advised to stop ecosprin 150 for 5 days before the extraction. A cardiologust advised me to have ecosprin 75 daily instead of 150 strength for the 5 days. Another said as the angio aws in 2008Feb I can stopp the ecospin maybe 2 days before extraction. the dentist has agrred to stoppage of ecosprin 3 days before extaction which includes the day of extraction. What am I to do. Should I get a blood clotting test done? ( before or after stopping ecosprin?) Since clopact is for thinning blood, should I stop that too?
I am a 67 year old female. Have been on amoxicillin 500mg 3-times a day for nine days now for a tooth extraction and bone graft. Also, take niaspan 1500 mg a nite. And was on ibubrofen 3x500mg 3 times a day for 4 days. Been off that for 3 days now. Today my fecus was green. Not sure if it was due to the fresh herbs in the chicken last nite or to the amoxicillin. Is this dangerous?
I had a tooth break during extraction, the root has remained in my upper jaw for years, maybe 8 years. From time to time my gum gets tender and sore and there seems to be what looks like a white head, way up on the gums. Most of the time it doesnt bother me. My dentist has been keeping an eye on it and x-rays it from time to time. He says it is very painful to have that root removed and doesn't advise it. He has never seen the whitehead thing as it goes away quickly. I have been having a lot of trouble with my blood pressure. Presently taking 3 meds and still too high, at worst 150/90, doctors are looking into possible causes. Any chance that broken off tooth root could be part of it? I understand rotten teeth or gums can lead to a stroke or heart attack. I take good care of my teeth and gums with routine brushing and dental visits, but have had to have a lot of work done on my teeth and now they tend to crack. I am 65, female.
After many years of being just not right, but never really ill and disappointing doctor visits, I found out that the most possible explanation for all my little symptoms are most likely Histaminosis. I have my remaining teeth removed beginning of...
