I had a molar tooth removed on the 21.8.2012, since then i have had constant ear ache, my gum at the side of another molar is loose, bits of tooth keep falling out of the hole and the only pain relief i get is when i take ibupofen, but only taking 6 a day is not helping . My tooth broke into 3 pieces while the dentist was trying to remove it so had to drill parts of it out . I am desperate for help with the pain. Yours hopefully Samantha Winter

  • Dear Samantha, I would recommend you to get an Xray done. Since you said that tooth extraction was bit complicated so there are chances a bit of broken fragments are still inside that are causing the pain. Apart from this take care not to smoke, spit or drink beverages using straw. That can lead to the dislodging of clot thereby can cause dry socket.
