Well I see someone has already ask my question a couple year ago but I don't see any replies to any questions ask on here. Im going to ask again and hopefully my answer will be posted some how. I had all four wisdom teeth extracted about 9 days ago. At first I thought I had a dry socket because Im still in pain. I went to the dentist a couple days ago and told him all my symptoms( foul taste pain feeling sick headaches sore throat nasal pressure and neck pain) but he looked inside and told me I was healing great no dry sockets. I told him three of the spots seem fine as far as pain but one at the bottom has lots of pain. He said Im just still a little sore and prescribed me stronger meds. I go home and its has been a couple more days since going to the dentist. I still have pain at the bottom and now I see a bubble. The foul taste has increased still have headaches and feel sick but the sore throat neck pain nasal pressure are gone. when I spit I can still see a little brown but it doesn't taste like blood. Im worried my gums are infected. After reading so many horror stories about dental problems Im wondering if I should go to the ER or wait until Monday to see my dentist again. Im out of antibiotics and still have some pain meds. I gargle salt water which helps with the foul taste. What can I do for a gum infection after extractions? Im pretty upset that he didn't really acknowledge my symptoms before. I feel he just wanted money from the beginning. I went in for a simple teeth cleaning and asked about removing one wisdom teeth which had a hole in it. I was not in no pain at all. Just wanted it out because the teeth hole smell bad. he insisted I get all removed because I would need it in the long run because of the limited space in my mouth. I only had one wisdom tooth in my mouth to start, the other three did not grow in, yet he insisted taking all of them out before. hoping I will be ok for one weekend.
