The Gums From The Tooth Extraction Are Painful After The Effects Of The Anesthesia Wear Off?
Good afternoon, I want to ask whether it is natural or not if after removing the tooth, the tooth mark that was pulled out feels pain after the anesthetic is gone? R nThank you in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify first, when exactly do you undergo tooth extraction? For what reason was the tooth removed? And exactly which tooth was pulled out?
Tooth extraction can be used as an alternative solution to overcome various problems with teeth. Generally, this is done when the remaining crown remains so minimal that it is no longer possible to maintain. Teeth can also be extracted if they are suspected to be the focus of infection which is prone to spreading to other organs in the vicinity. Or, the doctor could also do a tooth extraction in the tooth structure that is not right (for example oblique), experienced an impact, or also too much of it (gingsul).
For 1 to 3 days after removing the tooth, you can experience pain. This pain occurs due to inflammation of the gums and the tissue around the tooth that has been extracted. Not only is it painful, this inflammation can also make the gums swollen, making it difficult for you to chew and speak. These complaints normally get better on their own after more than 3 days after tooth extraction is done. However, depending on the condition of your previous tooth and the exact tooth that was extracted, this inflammation may take longer.
You can try to overcome the pain you are experiencing first by taking pain relievers that doctors usually prescribe after tooth extraction. Also compress the outside of the painful gum with warm water. Limit chewing foods that are too hard, too sweet, and also too cold using the side of the tooth that has been pulled out. Make a habit of brushing your teeth regularly and rinsing your mouth with salt water afterward (after pulling your teeth, avoid brushing and rinsing too hard in the first 1 to 3 days).
However, in some cases, post-tooth extraction pain in the gums may also occur due to an abnormality, such as a dry socket or infection in the tooth extraction. Dry socket (alveolar osteitis) occurs when a blood clot that normally forms on the gums where a tooth has been extracted falls off or fails to form. As a result, the jawbone may open and cause pain of very intense intensity. It could also be, the gums that open after tooth extraction have an infection. This condition occurs due to poor oral hygiene. Not only pain, this infection of the gums generally also makes the gums swell, reddish, and produces unpleasant smelling secretions.
In this condition, you should check with the dentist again. Doctors need to do an immediate evaluation to determine the cause of your pain, as well as provide the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
