Intense Jaw pain on right side after Wisdom Teeth removal

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: hlehman86  (7 years ago)
Hi,
I had my wisdom teeth removed a little over a week ago by an oral surgeon. Ever since two days afterwards, I have had an intense pain on my right side of my jaw that extends to my ear. It is so painful that I have thrown up due to the pain and not been sleeping for awhile. I went to the oral surgeon when the pain first started because it was so intense and the pain pills they gave me after surgery did nothing. Unfortunately, I had a horrible oral surgeon who instead of looking in my mouth to find the problem or at least humor me to find a problem...instead berated me about coming to his office 4 days after surgery with pain...telling me "of course you have pain....what the hell are you coming here for?" and also never once looked in my mouth to check for dry socket, etc...It was horrible.

Since then I have been scared to call my oral surgeon or dentist regarding my pain, and the pain has just been increasing by the day. I am now out of painkillers and only have Tylenol to take for the pain. This is doing absolutely nothing other than probably giving me liver damage. I honestly don't know what to do now. Please Please help!!

Dear hlehman86, this kind of pain is called "dry socket". your dentist or oral surgeon should wash the extraction site with saline solution, then apply a resorbable mesh of iodoforme called "alvogyl". The pain shall release immediately.
