Ear and Headache after wisdom tooth extraction

By archana 4/13/2012 4:57:06 AM
Hi, I had my wisdom tooth(all 4) extraction 1 week back.I was fine for the first three days. my dentist asked me to stop taking the pain killers from 4th day. i stopped and from that day i am facing severe pain on my left side cheekbone, ear and headache . Can you please suggest whether is this common or some thing is affected in my ear or any nerve is affected? My dentist told it might be beacuse of the big mouth ulcers i got n my mouth(3 ulcers) after extraction. Please help me by providing your valuable suggestion. I have asked to continue the painkiller(oviron) for some more days.

The pain on the left side can be either because of the ulcers which you have mentioned or it can be because of some infection in the socket. The pain because of ulcer is self limiting and goes as the ulcer heals but if it is due to infection or because of dry socket then you have to go to the dentist who will do the dressing or write the pain killers for the infection.
