I had 3 wisdom teeth extracted 6 days ago- 1 on the top and 2 on the bottom. After the surgery everything seemed to be going well, not much pain or swelling- this is likely due to the fact that my oral surgeon put me on ibuprofen 600 and amoxicillin the day before the surgery. 3 days after the surgery I started to get pain in my bottom front middle 2 teeth. Over the next few days it has gotten worse and only stops when I eat, even sleeping has been a challenge. I finally caved and called the oral surgeon today- when I visited he mentioned that it is probably nerve related but he doesn't really understand what it is. He didn't even look in my mouth to check for infection. Today it has been relentless- I have cried lots as its frustrating that my surgical areas are not sore but it feels like someone is kicking in my front teeth! What could ths be caused by and is there any way to find relief?
Thanks in advance....
