Help!! tooth pain!

So I had to have 2 teeth pulled today (both back on the right side)......Anyway 4 hrs later my mouth hurts worse than it did before I went (I had a toothache for a week, swollen face).

Also the tooth right beside the removed ones is hurtingso badly I can't let my upper teeth touch it.  I called my dentist about pain meds and haven't heard back yet but in his office he said he recommends Advil.  Advil isn't doing shit.

 

Is this normal? Any suggestions?  Did the Dentist fuck up?

You do need to see your dentist as soon as possible to rule out infection or another problem.  In the mean time, you can try alternating naproxen sodium, 750mg, with Ibuprofen, 800mg, alternating every six to eight hours, but you can only do that for a few days.

I was just there at noon.  I've been on antibiotics for a week also.  I'm waiting on them to call me back right now.

This will only give you temporary relief, but I swear it works. Take an ice cube, and hold it on the webbed part of your hand between your thumb and index finger, once it goes numb, your pain will stop.

The teeth were just pulled at noon, I wonder how long it takes dry socket to hit?

I don't usually have teeth issues (thank goodness) so this has been hell.......I'm hoping the dentist will call something in for me befoer he closes.

A dry socket is where the blood clot comes out of the hole were the tooth once was....

Yes, what's it's numb it somehow blocks pain receptors in your brain, I use to do it all the time when I had tooth pain. Go try it!
