Well...even after having my wisdom teeth pulled a week ago, and a horribly infected tooth (which had been previously root canaled/crowned) pulled on Friday....
I am back on these boards.
I have had oodles of dental problems in my 31 years, and I am running out of teeth that I can lose.
Why am I here now?
In the healing process since my 3rd tooth was pulled 3 days ago...I have been experiencing pain in several other teeth. One is on the bottom on the same side that 3rd tooth was pulled (which was on the top). I have had some pain on the wisdom tooth side, just in front of where they were. And I am still feeling lingering pain in the vacant spot FROM that 3rd tooth.
I know you can have a tooth ache that you feel in different areas in your mouth. I have heard a bit about "phantom" toothaches, much like when someone loses a limb, but they still feel it?
Can anyone tell me if these feelings will disappear as all of these recent extractions heal? Or do I just have more tooth problems I can't afford, emotionally or financially?
And if they ARE real tooth issues....why wouldn't the strong antibiotics I have been on for a two weeks now aid in these pains for the time being?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
