Five days ago, I had my upper left wisdom tooth removed. (This was the second time I visited the dentist, the first time was when I got a filling on my molar. I only visit the dentist when my teeth are in pain because I do not have an insurance and I have a low income. I have to prioritize other things.) After the extraction, the dentist gave me a couple of to close up the wound. Three days after the extraction, I saw a food particle at the extraction site, I sprayed water on it to wash it away using the syringe they gave me at the dental clinic. The next morning, I woke up with a more swollen face. The pain from the extraction site was terrible. I thought it was normal so I took painkiller every six hours. It's been the fifth day since the extraction but the pain seems getting worse. I can't sleep at night, I would have to get up and walk away to alleviate the pain.
What should I do now? How long does it normally take for the pain to go away after a removal? Please help!!! Many thanks!
