I had a back tooth removed...?!


I had a back tooth removed...?

a week ago. I am still in a lot of pain and have had a course of antibiotics since as there was an infection. I have rung the dentist and she said because it was a difficult extraction (40 mins to remove) it will be painful for a while. I'm at my wits end and full up with painkillers! Anyone else experienced this and does age make a difference to the healing time?


I had this when I had my wisdom teeth removed and it does take a long time to get better if an infection has set in. If you are still in a lot of pain (like if it hasn't lessened at all) then you might need a different course of antibiotics. If your dentist is unwilling to see you then you could go to your GP and see if they can help.
