Hello, good morning Farah.
Pain after tooth extraction is a common thing, this is related to the trauma at the tooth extraction site and causes an inflammatory / inflammatory reaction. These pain symptoms usually disappear after 3-4 days or even 1 week. After tooth extraction, a blood clot that is black or dark red will usually form in the place where the tooth was extracted. Apart from normal conditions after tooth extraction, other conditions such as post-tooth extraction infections, gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), tooth abscess (pus accumulation), nerve disorders, and so on, can also cause pain. To be able to confirm your condition, you need an in-person examination.
So, if the pain persists for more than 1 week, or if you feel very worried, we recommend that you check with the dentist again to confirm the health condition of your teeth and mouth, whether the pain is normal due to extraction or is it due to other reasons. You also suggest that you immediately check with your doctor if there is bleeding that doesn't stop, pus, or fever.
Here are some suggestions that we can give to help relieve your pain temporarily while waiting for the doctor's appointment / control schedule:
consumption of drugs given by the doctor until completely, such as antibiotics and painkillers
If painkillers are not given or have run out, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol.
do gargle with warm water to help reduce pain. Remember not to rinse too hard
do not smoke
apply a cold compress to the outer cheek if there is swelling
I hope this helps
