Is it normal to have severe to extreme pain after a standard wisdom tooth extraction? The extraction only took a few minutes.
It has been 9 days. I had penicillin and have been taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen, it dulls but doesn't erase the pain. It is extreme if the pills wear off. This doesn't seem normal. I have cared for it carefully, rinsing with salt water, following all the instructions. I went back after 5 days and the dentist put a dressing in the hole which has since fallen out. The pain is no better but seems to be continuously getting worse. Help!
