Pain 2 months after wisdom tooth extraction

I am 32 years old and had my upper wisdom teeth removed 2 months ago. My wisdom teeth were not causing me any problems and I had plenty of room for them in my mouth. But now I'm experiencing a lot of pain. The space where my wisdom tooth used to be on the left side hurts. The two teeth beside where my wisdom tooth used to be on the upper left seem to hurt as well. One of those two teeth that was next to my wisdom tooth has had a root canal done twice, and has a crown on it.
The pain that I am feeling is a throbbing pain. It is difficult for me to pinpoint where exactly the pain is. It seems the hole where my tooth used to be hurts. The gumline where my wisdom tooth was removed hurts all the way to the two neighboring mollars.
One of these mollars that was beside my wisdom tooth has a had a root cannal done twice, and got infected both times, and has a crown on it now. The root cannal was done almost 17 years ago. Now the tooth that has a crown and had a root cannal is black just at the top around the tooth closest to the gumline.

Can anyone please tell me if they have any idea what may be going on?
I don't know if I have an infection from my wisdom tooth extraction, or if I have a cavity on my other teeth. I brush and floss my teeth everytime I eat, so I don't understand why I am dealing with all these problems with my teeth. I really want this throbbing pain to go away. I wish I never had my wisdom teeth removed to begin with!

Re: Pain 2 months after wisdom tooth extraction

Give your dentist at least a call. I am sure you're going to have to go back to see him. Even if you had wisdom teeth removed couple of months ago, there could easily be something else going on at a different part of your mouth/teeth now. Sounds like the area where you have the crown and root canal and said it is black is infected. When it comes to our teeth, it can easily be one thing after another. Been there, spent alot of money on my teeth. Very frustrating because it's so darn expensive too.

Re: Pain 2 months after wisdom tooth extraction

Was it a simple extraction of your wisdom teeth or were they impacted? Did you experience pain initially and were you prescribed a pain medication then? I am asking because I am having a similiar procedure next week -simple extraction of upper wisdom teeth because it is hard to keep adjacent teeth and gums clean. I am over 50 years old, and have reservations about having it done due to possible future complications. Does tylenol help? I would call your dentist and describe your situation and maybe get an emergency appointment or a painkiller to help until you can get to the dentist.

Hi, You will need x-rays of all painful areas. I find that my endodonist has excellent x-rays. They are digital and you can see every little blood vessel, ligaments, and swelling, shadowing. My regular dentist does not have this type of x-ray, and, although she is really good at seeing an absess, my endo's x-rays are much better. If you have had two root canals and a crown already in one tooth, then I would suggest extraction and possibly an implant. Yes, I know, really super expensive. use the flouride mouthwash twice a day and keep the flouride mouthwash in your mouth for at least 30 seconds before spitting it out. brush your teeth more often and use dental floss. good luck to you.
