Pain, swelling and burning sensation

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: iamachef  (9 years ago)
Hello,

Five days ago, I went in for a supposed root canal treatment on a back molar. The dentist said the tooth was badly decayed and had to be extracted. She said she would do a three-point bridge and crown. She proceeded with the extraction and cemented a temporary crown in. I have to wait for two weeks for the permanent crown. The healing process seemed good until yesterday, I had a severe pain and swelling on my left cheek and lips. My gum had also been hurting. I also felt burning sensation in my mouth. Any ideas what went wrong? I was fine for the first three days then all of a sudden, these symptoms came out. Thank you for your time.

Crap, I wish you had had a socket preservation graft, so you could have had an implant instead of a bridge!

Could be a dry socket, or could be the tooth with the new temporary crown is flaring up.
