My wife had an extraction and bone graft in preparation for and implant on the tooth behind the canine. The canine tooth started experiencing mild pain immediately following the procedure and has become steadily worse. Now the canine tooth is so sensitive to touch that she cannot even floss. What could have caused this? 9 real sensitivity to hot or cold has been experienced

  • I would suggest you to go to a dentist and get an Xray done of the tooth where you are experiencing pain as there are chances of tooth fracture due to which you are having pain which is gradually increasing day by day. It is likely that adjacent tooth can get fractured due to traumatic extraction.

    Also the pain can be due to tooth movement and if this is the case than you don't need to worry as the pain will go gradually. So till the time you see a dentist, just take any over the counter pain killer.
