I had my tooth extracted #18 5 days ago , and I am experiencing severe pain . It feels swollen to me and also feels tight in that area . I can't smile without it hurting . It feels like a lot of pressure and also the pain radiates to my ear as well .

  • It looks like you have developed a dry socket which is there is due to dislodegment of blood clot formed on top of tooth extraction site within 24 hours. Dry socket is quite painful and for this you have to go to dentist to get the treatment done. He will clean the area and put dry socket paste and give dressing which will you relief and if needed your dentist will prescribe you some antibiotics and pain killer tabs.
