I had my third molar (tooth extraction) removed on thurs. It's sat night, and my face is VERY swollen and I am in so much pain!!I am taking percocet that the Dr gave me, and it is not helping!! Now my whole head hurts! And my ears and throat! I don't think it is dry socket, because My lymph nods are not swollen. I am waiting for an On-Call Dentist to call me back but it has been hours! I live in a very small town, and we only have a couple of dentist's, with the nearest hospital 45 min away!! (And the Hosp is even very small) What can I do?? I am alone, with two children (5 and 6) and I can hardly talk! I was wondering if it was infected, but I don't have a fever (however I have been taking percocet and IBP 800's. Is it normal to have this much pain? I didn't with my last tooth extraction. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thank you!!
