  • If she is having high fever and there is no other cause then it can be due to extracted wisdom teeth. So you need to consult your dentist who will examine the extraction site to find out whether infection is there or not. The dentist will decide only about antibiotic. Till then you can just control the fever. Ibuprofin is just a pain killer and for fever you have to give paracetamol and for high fever you can do some cold water sponging. for more info on tooth extraction you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-complications-after-tooth-extraction-881.aspx
