Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tooth extraction can be done for a variety of reasons, including cavities or infection in the tooth that leaves very little crown of the tooth left behind. Before the tooth extraction process, the doctor will often perform an X-ray examination to evaluate the area around the tooth and the condition of the roots. This is useful for assessing the possibility of infection that can complicate healing after tooth extraction.
The presence of a sharp sensation when touching the area of the tooth that can be extracted can arise due to various reasons. Possibly, this sharp mass comes from other teeth around the teeth that were previously extracted. It could also be, this sharp mass appears due to food scraps, tartar, or even leftover teeth. To tell the difference, you need to go back to the dentist for a check-up. Examination should be done immediately, especially if you still experience bleeding or swelling after tooth extraction. That way, treatment can be done more quickly so that complaints get better quickly.
In the meantime, do not touch the sharp area with your tongue too often because it can trigger sores on the tongue. Brush your teeth regularly 3 times a day and limit chewing food using the side of the extracted tooth for the next 1 to 3 days. Gargle with antiseptic mouthwash every before bed to clean the remnants of food that are often left in the oral cavity. If there is pain from the tooth extraction, you can first take paracetamol to reduce the pain.
Hope it helps ya..
