I had 13 teeth extracted five days ago and am now edentulous in preparation for dentures. The pain has subsided quite a bit, but I find there is still throbbing in my gums, usually different spots at different times. I had stitches, some of which have come out. My question is: how long before I will not feel this throbbing? I have a one week f/u appt with my dentist, but am curious as to how long this mild pain might last. Thank you.
