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.
