Right rear bottom molar was extracted Feb 2. Have continual pain from the area. The gum near the cheek is puffy and white. Took pen vk for a couple of days but had adverse reaction. Have Amoxicillin but haven't taken it yet. Does pain indicate infection or what? Also have pain in chest are near right clavical. Could this be associated with tooth?

  • Pain is there after so many day after extraction then there definately you have infected extraction socket. Healing takes place in around 7-10 days and there should not be any pain. As you say that right shoulder near the clavical is also paining, it indicates that the lymph nodes in that area are swollen due to infection. so visit your dentist and get the treatment done for this.
