Hello! I am going to first thank anyone who is able to assist me in ANY way!
I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed Aug 24, 2016. I originally could not have the surgery until the infection that had caused me to go to the dentist in the first place was killed. My dentist gave me Penicillin to take for 7 days and then I came in for the extraction on the 24th. Healing seemed fine, but about 4 days after the surgery I had excruciating pain that did not let me sleep and constantly made me cry because I'm a 22 year old wimp . Anywho, I went to the dentist and he put Eugenol on the bottom left extraction site, but he did NOT specifically say I had dry socket, although it seemed like it. He also gave me a syringe to use for cleaning the site of food debris. The pain is only ever on the bottom left side. My upper 2 and bottom right molars have no pain and I can eat on the right side of my mouth fine. It is only the left, where the infection was. It has been 15 days, and I still am popping Tylonol Extra Strength 500 mL DAILY, atleast 3 at a time for the pain. My tongue is no longer pasty and yellow as it was days before, however the extraction site on the left still tastes disgusting and makes my breath smell. It also hurts like hell when I wake up, lay down at night. I have an appointment Monday, but I am really starting to think it is still infected because the site SMELLS and I mean REAKS of sewage, even after I clean or brush my teeth. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!
