Toothache Accompanied By Swollen Jaw After Pulling The Upper Molars?
When on Monday I pulled my upper molars, and until now how come I still feel sick huh … Sometimes I still like it but it’s not too bad. Then the bottom of my jaw hurts like that. Is that the result of pain in the tooth?
Hello Ulfa! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are various reasons for pulling molars. Before the molars are removed, the dentist will give a local anesthetic so that the area of the tooth to be extracted becomes immune to pain. If your teeth are removed because of an interruption of wisdom teeth growth, the dentist will cut a little gum and various surrounding tissue to remove the molars inside. If it's difficult, sometimes the doctor needs to cut the teeth into pieces before pulling them out. When the tooth has been successfully removed, a blood clot will form which functions to stop the bleeding. After the procedure, the dentist usually gives pain medication to reduce pain after the procedure and accelerate the recovery of inflammation in the area around the extracted tooth. Patients are advised to rest at home, eat soft food, avoid spitting hard, and avoid smoking. Pain and swelling do take a long time to get better, around 1-2 weeks. What you are experiencing right now is normal. However, if you have a fever or chills, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, or swelling that you experience actually getting bigger, you should immediately see a doctor for further examination.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
