Toothache Around A Tooth That Has Been Removed?
Hello, I’m 19, just pulled out the left big molars. Guess “already 1 Sunday ago. And after that the tooth next to it hurts (2 teeth next to the tooth extracted) And just now I saw in the mirror, the back teeth there are black spots near the extraction u0026amp; it hurts if the tooth is pressed. How is that? Is there a possibility of cracking of the next tooth during tooth extraction yesterday?
Tooth extractions are performed if they meet the indications, for example broken or perforated teeth that cannot be repaired, infections of the teeth and gums, recurring tooth pain that does not improve with medication, severe tooth decay, abnormal tooth growth, need additional space when treating braces, or wobbly teeth that can't be fixed.
Tooth extraction is quite safe, but it does not rule out the possibility of post-tooth complications, such as infection, dry socket, nerve problems that cause numbness in the lips, tongue, chin, and gums.
Regarding complaints of toothache around the extracted tooth, it needs to be seen directly whether it is related to the tooth extraction process or not. Toothache itself can be caused by cavities, cracked / broken teeth, infections, pus / abscesses on teeth, tooth decay, facial nerve disorders, sinusitis, and malignancy.
If it's been 1 week but you still feel a toothache, I suggest that you control back to the dentist who treats you so that you can re-evaluate the condition of your teeth. Then you can be given additional treatment if needed.
While waiting for control, you can do the following tips:
Drink plenty of water
Avoid foods that are sticky, too hard, or too sweet
Gargle after eating
Remove teeth twice a day in the morning and at night
Avoid gouging the gums
Hope it helps you,
