Extreme pain following tooth extraction

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: WebbieDebbie  (7 years ago)
I had an impacted lower moler and was prescribed Amoxacillin p.o. I took it for a few days then noticed burning and razor blade sensation on inside of mouth and tongue. Advised to stop antibiotic. Lower right molar extracted by oral surgeon 5 days ago. Painful swallowing and painful gum. Taking pain pills every 4 hours with minimal relief. Seen by oral surgeon and told had exposed bone and to let heal on its own. Looked in mirror and saw white strip along side of gum. Going in tomorrow to have something done. Is this normal?

No, it is not normal. Have the surgeon take care of it for you. You probably have dry socket.

I had him check it and he said I did not have dry socket. I knew I was going to have pain after the extraction but none like I experienced. He said it was exposed bone. I just saw him today and he took care of it. I feel much better than I did after the extraction, though I still am in pain I know for the next few days, I can finally swallow without pain. I knew there was a difference with the pain of the extraction and something else going on. I wish he would have treated it sooner than making me wait 4 days in extreme pain.

Thank you for responding.
