They did this Friday. It's been 3 days going on 4 tomorrow. Still got all my stitches. Roof of mouth feels like sandpaper where I can't eat without pain pill. I can't sleep because I wake up so swollen and throbbing. I was told by number of people pain was going to be gone two to three days. I had all my wisdom teeth and all. Well they gave me 40 percocets which said 5 day supply but it said take 1-2 every 4-6 hrs. I had to take 2 every 4 hrs to feel comfortable I have two kids ages 1 & 2 so I needed it to handle them. Anyway they only lasted 3 almost 4 days. I also been taking naproxen and penicillin. Swelling not horrible in cheeks anymore until I try and lie down and then it's bad but inside mouth swollen and got a huge lump non abbcess on right wisdom tooth gum. Anyway I called for more medicine. The oral surgeon told me it would hurt for a week easily in my case because impacted teeth and how many teeth I had in my mouth but only gave me enough pain medicine for 3 days and office is he away. Now I have to go in the office and am worrying he's going to tell me I don't need it. But truly I do. Worst pain. In my life can't eat or sleep. Anyway when did your guys pain start going away when you did ice packs meds flushing teeth and all properly? And did pain medicine last time needed for you? Am I wrong to ask for refill?
All 31 teeth pulled including by impacted wisdom teeth. Did pain. Medicine last with you?

I'm worried I'm in wrong to ask for help tomorrow. With everything on news with pharmacies getting robbed and all laws have changed and doctors tend to look at everyone as a suspect or something. But this is only time I have ever actually asked for something for pain. I'm not one to complain really. I had two kids all natural without flipping out. I can handle most pain. I mean but I'm a mommy of 2 girls a year apart ages 1-2 and I have to take care of them when their daddy is at work and it's really hard with all this pain
I had all mine pulled and the denture put right in. All I took was Aleve. Have you iced your face? That helps. It probably is the wisdom teeth that is really the problem. I had those done years earlier and the one that was really impacted hurt bad. I'd just go talk to the dr who did it and be sure everything is ok and see what he'll do for you.
Hello, this is very real for you and when your uncomfortable you can't rest, get the things done that you have to with your kiddos. Pain in the jaw is bad with one tooth removed. The pain is aggravated nerves that are inflamed and ripped away from the pulp of the tooth that were just yanked out. Talk about 31 teeth and it's amazing you can hardly stand it long enough to compose this message. You call up the dr who removed the teeth. There is something that can happen once a tooth is removed known as dry socket. It happens more frequently than not and is extremely painful! It is very painful. Contact your family dr and the problem was that the pain medicine was not balanced correctly with the procedure and the pain. You should have been written for Percocet 10 milligrams to be taken every 4-6 hours an given 40 tablets that isn't going to cut it the 5 mg percocets. Another real solution.
My grand pop back in the old country the Netherlands had his mother do this for him and my grand pop did it for me and it worked. You take a plain aspirin make sure it's not enteric coated just plain aspirin 325 mg is what they are and take 1 aspirin and hold/press the aspirin onto the tooth area near the gum line even if it's an open area or stitched hold the aspirin right on top of it. The aspirin will melt some and it will penetrate and take away the pounding the pain and it works!
Well it has now been almost month and to be honest now I'm still in pain not nearly as much but still cry worthy at times. Sadly now I'm dealing with dry socket for sure and bone shards coming out my gums in multiple places. Feels like razor blades. I just can't believe I was treated like that because as said what if it was them or their family. I refuse to return to that oral surgeon I will be going to dentist for dentures. However I am thinking of hospital for these bone shards. No joke they are crazy painful and not only hurting gums but my lips and inside mouth elsewhere underneath lips cut up as well. I'm done with the pain can't wait till this is all over
Also definitely looking into this AMA u speak of have no idea what this is but definitely looking into it. I would hate for someone else to be reassured that this is best option no pain and go threw what I went through with two babies. Horrifying experience. I am so thankful that I don't have to ever go to another dentist again after healing is over with. I would never do this again as said trust me.
Pcolantonio, I am with what Kaismama said I had the same thing done and my denture put in right after they pulled them the penicillin did you finish that.If anything go to a different dentist for the rest of the work nobody can really say how much pain we are in but I also found Aleve very helpful and lots of ice on face Avoid aspirin on the gums at this point on gums could get your bleeding more.Every case is different So who knows what was with this dentist outside of you used up your pain pills faster than it should of due to doubling it up. Well glad you are over that part hope you are feeling better by now.
Very sorry to hear about all your pain. I'm wondering why you needed 31 teeth pulled and at such a young age. AMA stands for American Medical Association. You might do better with the American Dental Association. I can't even imagine what bone shards are about, but I would think that you should either go to the hospital or at least to a dentist to have that treated. The pain must still be terrible for you.
To say that you are never going to another dentist is unwise. That's what can lead to major mouth problems. Let us know how you are doing and what you decide to do. I certainly wish you the best.
