Another Teeth Forum Answered

Hey, just saw there were alot of responses to the other forum and I'm having trouble finding anything that makes me feel better on the Web, so I figured I'd ask here. I had 1 wisdom tooth that had grown in properly and rotted, pull about 6 days ago. I'm still having "I need serious painkillers" pain. I'm pretty confident that its not dry socket. none of the pain is really coming from inside my mouth other then the side of my tounge. most of the pain is in my chin jaw line and up into my temple. I've had plenty of extractions and they all heal enough not to hurt after about three days. Am I gonna die?.....lol...... no but seriously..... is this normal?..... like maybe from him reefing on my jaw to lossen the tooth? or am I screwed and should go back to the dentist?

I have never had wisdom teeth pulled (so far I only have 3- all partially in) But I have had braces, and two bicuspids pulled due to a small mouth. Those only hurt for a couple days. My jaw and face never hurt from it. I'm thinking though, well see- when they pull wisdom teeth- they open your jaw very wide. (obviously) If you have any form of TMJ- that may be hurting it drastically. (TMJ means not having enough cartilage in your jaw- so it grinds. I have had TMJ since I was about 9 (I'm 17) and it has gone away quite a bit. For a while though, it was very bad, and my jaw was locked for about 8 hours once. I had to just keep my mouth shut and try to keep it relaxed. Thank God it went away... Now, it only makes a crack noise if I open it all the way. So even if you have a mild case of TMJ you didn't recognize before, that could be a good reason why it hurts so... If you don't think that's any reason for you though, you probably should call your dentist. It could be something serious. Hope you feel better- nice to meet you. Briana

Yeah, I am starting to experience a form of TMJ myself. It's not a problem during normal conversation or eating, but if I open my mouth a little too wide, or chew too hard, it catches and clicks, sending shockwaves of minor pain through the left side of my head.

oh ouch... Just make sure you don't stretch your mouth really wide, and try not to chew gum too often... it seems to go away, somewhat. Or at least it has for me... I'll pray for you.

Thanks, but it really is only a minor inconvenience (so far).....part of getting older in my case :-)

I'm pretty sure no one here is a registered Dentist or Oral Surgeon. Give your dentist a call and describe what is happening, see what he says.

Seriously, you may be grinding your teeth at night (I do, and sometimes also chew on my tongue, so it is sore on the one side every morning).

I've contacted Doctor Zoidberg about your problem.
He proposed to make more room for your teeth by removing the carapace of your mandible and to wait for your next molting ...

However, something tells me you should better consult a qualified dentist ... =o)

No, yes, not a question, probably not. Yay condensed answers! (Those answer the 4 ?'s in your last paragraph)
