Thanks for asking the query,

Wisdom tooth extraction is not a simple procedure and often associated with post operative complications like pain, swelling, numbness, difficulty in mouth opening, fever, malaise.

You dont worry about the symptoms as they will subside after sometimes.
Follow the post operative instructions given by the Dentist properly, use warm saline gargles, antiseptic mouthwash gargles.
You can take paracetomol 500mg twice for fever.

Take complete rest, maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Dentist Dr. Anshumala Singh's  Response
Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

In this case i would suggest you to please visit your dentist for post extraction follow up .

Get the healing sockets that any left over root stumps,any infection or a case of dry socket,etc can be ruled out.These are common causes of post extraction pain.

This can be very well ruled out upon clinical examination.

After that,upon consultation you can also request for the change of your pain it has already been a week since you got the extraction done.this much pain is not expected.
If required antibiotics should be started to treat the infections ,if found.

Meanwhile you can do warm saline rinses.

Hope it helps.


Take care.
