and burning is this normal they give me hydrocodone for the first 3 days but that's it but even when I was taking it it didn't take all the pain away and sometime it took 2 hours before it worked they did give me a particle to ware and I have been using it is this normal and how long will this last
You can go to the Pharmacy and ask for Hurricaine Gel, it's what the dentist uses to numb you mouth before they start giving you the shots to numb you. Also use ice, Ice is your best friend right now. Like your dentist told you make sure you rinse with salt water frequently, and if you can feel exposed bone with your tongue you need to go back to your dentist and have them fix it, it is very painful and an open source of infection for your mouth.
If you had molars removed you might have developed dry sockets and if that is the case you need to go back to your dentist and they can pack the whole with a clove gauze to alleviate the pain, but it will have to be repacked daily.
I have had horrible dental experiences so I am glad to give any advice to people suffering the same.
