Teeth Shifting After Extractions

How long does it take for your teeth to settle down and your jaw start to feel better after extractions? I still have some stiffness and pain when chewing.. and my upper teeth still feel sensitive in spots. I'm figuring this is all a part of the healing process. It has almost been two weeks since I had them done..in the last month and a half I've lost 3 teeth on the right side..I'm certain it will take a bit for things to settle down. Trying to just give it time.

Re: Teeth Shifting After Extractions

Hi Laye! Well I had a upper wisdom tooth extracted Jan 2 and still sensitive back there. I went back to see why or if this was normal. I was told by dentist it takes 6 months to heal! Bone has to heal where tooth was removed. I feel sore when chewing tough foods, so I just chew on other side. I was told to wait it out, nothing is wrong. So I am sure you are gong through the same thing. Any questions ask your dentist. I went just to give myself piece of mind that nothing was wrong. Feel better soon.

Re: Teeth Shifting After Extractions

Thanks for responding...I've kind of figured that. It's just so annoying at times. I really want to eat..but I still can't just eat without some discomfort. And it feels like there is this pressure still. Kind of comes and goes and all of that. I had the oral surgeon look at it and he said it was healing just fine. I flossed the other night and there was some blood but that's because I think I haven't flossed that area in a bit due to it being the area of the extractions. It's like some days are better than others. I think it is just the mouth adjusting. Glad you are feeling better too!!

Yes, every day is different, some days I feel it more than others too.
