Re: Had a wisdom tooth extraction a month ago and now have throbbing & excruciating p
I'm sorry this is happening to you. I have not had a similar experience, but I do understand how it feels to have a dentist who just doesn't care. I had a wisdom tooth extraction over a month ago, too, and while it has healed nicely, the tooth next to it is not. At any rate, I fired them, and am contemplating filing a report with them with the state dentistry board. I, too, feel like my pain has been minimized, and they keep telling me I shouldn't be in pain.
Have you explored the possibility that your issues are related to your TMJ? It's possible that having your jaw opened for an extended amount of time can sort of mess with that area. Also, the injection of the novacain into the jaw may have triggered an issue?
Good luck to you. I hope you find some answers and some relief! Are you taking motrin? It helps a lot, too.
