The Pain That Appears When A Tooth Is About To Be Removed After Anesthesia?
Hello, good evening DoctorDok, I want to ask. I want to extract molars under the left and right when I was anesthetized, I was numb and I want to pull it, it hurts. I wonder why ? Previously, it didn’t hurt my teeth. Thank you, Doctor 🙂
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, is your tooth removed now? For what reason did your tooth come out? Is tooth extraction done at the dentist?
Basically, the pain that appears when a tooth is about to be removed after local anesthesia (anesthesia) can occur due to failure of anesthesia. This condition is quite common and can be treated immediately when your teeth are about to be removed by re-anesthesia. Meanwhile, pain in the teeth after tooth extraction is a very normal condition. Swelling is also the symptom that most often accompanies pain after tooth extraction. This pain and swelling will usually be felt within the first 3 days after extraction and will decrease afterwards. The recovery period itself can occur in 7-10 days.
If indeed your teeth still continue to feel pain or pain does not decrease within 3 days, or if you feel pain in your teeth more severe, you feel other symptoms such as pus discharge or smelling liquid from the tooth extraction area, then you should immediately check again yourself to your dentist.
Some things you can do to help reduce pain include taking pain medication as instructed by your dentist and compressing the cheeks whose teeth have just been pulled out with cold compresses / with ice cubes. Here is an article that you can read to find out other things you should do in the recovery period after tooth extraction.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
