Last week I had all my wisdom teeth removed. After three days, I was in awful pain and I even had a fever. I went back to the dentist and he said I had developed dry socket. He put a packing in it and I was told to come back every other day to have it changed. After two days, I woke up with a severe sore throat and my tongue was very swollen. I cannot eat and swallow anything. The dentist said I had a bad tongue infection. He gave me antibiotics. I am taking them up for two days now but I still cannot eat. My tongue is still very painful. How long will the infection and the dry socket take to heal? What can you guys suggest to help me deal with this for now?
Thank you very much.
