Three weeks ago, my face had been very swollen and I cannot open my mouth wide enough to take my food. The dentist, after taking some xrays said, I had a massive infection and the second upper molar was badly decayed. He prescribed antibiotics and he scheduled me for an extraction when the infection is gone.
We went on with the extraction and after the procedure, he sent me home with a wad of gauze in the wound. When the numbness wore off, the pain was so terrible, I took Tylenol. Five days had passed but the pain is still there. I can feel a sharp pain under my tongue. I rang the dentist about it but he only prescribed a stronger pain killer and antibiotics. I suspect an exposed bone on the extraction site and I am worried that it can easily get infected. What should I do? Please help me!
I would greatly appreciate your answers!
