Had a tooth pulled and stitched 2 yrs ago which they stitched a nerves often still have throbbing pain where tooth was now suddenly my lower cheek above where i had the tooth pulled is painful to the touch what could it be?
I'm kind of baffled...
I need a few questions please.
-So two years ago was the extraction and you healed. Right?
- during that time until now, did you have any pain?
-When did the pain start this time?
- How severe is it # 1-10?with one being then lowest?
- Is there swelling?
- Do you have a fever?
- Do you feel any abscess by your gun?
- Do you have a sore throat or sinus infection?
beautiful; No after 2 years, it should have nothing to do with that old tooth. You need to get in and see a dentist and find out if there is an infection in the gum. You could get some otc tooth product like Orajel or anything with benzocaine in it and rub it on the gum until you can get in. Good luck to you.
Going on your previous responses it does sound like you may have some infection in that area and a trip to your dentist is in your best interest. Clove oil or Red Cross are also good choices for pain in the mouth area until you can get in. God bless & prayers.
Years ago I had a tooth pulled and had an unimaginable pain after.. After Many returns to my dentist he gave me a shot of cortisone in the sore area. He didn't have answers as to why it was hurting but the Cortisone worked!
