Still Painful After 1 Month Pulling Wisdom Teeth?
Hello, I have been doing wisdom teeth surgery for almost a month. After removing the stitches my teeth still feel pain, that’s why? Is that natural? Is there a solution so that my teeth are not painful? Thank you, doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After wisdom teeth surgery, the healing process will generally last for 1 to 2 weeks. Of course, the duration of this recovery can also vary depending on many factors, including:
The condition of your wisdom teeth before surgery; for example if your wisdom teeth have become infected and form an abscess, often healing will last longer
Handling that is carried out after surgery; for example if you consume too much hard or hot food too early, then your surgery will heal longer
Other complications; for example infections, bleeding, dry sockets, and so on
Pain that you feel almost 1 month after wisdom tooth surgery is probably caused by one of the factors above. It could also be that the pain in your teeth actually arises due to other reasons, not always related to the surgery you went through before, for example due to jaw joint disorders, sinusitis, trigeminal neuralgia, migraine, and so on. To be clear, you better check back to the nearest dentist huh ..
So that your pain improves, while you can take the drug paracetamol first. Be diligent at brushing your teeth, followed by gargling using an antiseptic mouthwash. Avoid consuming foods that are too hot, too hard, and too sticky, especially on the side of the tooth that has been operated on.
Hope this helps ...
