Re: Problem with teeth after tooth extraction
I had a molar removed on the upper right many years ago. The same thing happened. I felt pain in the tooth in front of it. The dentist told me that the nerve runs through that whole area so you are feeling post-op pain just being referred to the other teeth. However, if it continues into next week, see him, or if you develop fever or any signs of infection, see any pus. You are still healing and sore so it's painful...most likely it's just referred pain down the nerve pathway. Let us know what he says. Try Advil or any generic ibuprofen, use an ice pack carefully, just a few minutes on and off. Is it an upper or lower molar?
