Help!!! 6 teeth removed!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had 6 teeth removed (2 lower wisdom teeth 4 normal teeth ) 4 days ago.  The pain relief I was taking helped for 2 days but not it won’t even budge the pain, I’ve also been giving anti biotics to bring swelling down but the pain is getting worse ! I have had 6 hours sleep in 4 days.  Dentist says they can’t prescribe me anything stronger than paracetamol. Will A&e help me ? I know it’s bound to be agony but I really cannot handle another day or night of this. I found both my child births less painful than this. Please shed some light, thank you

    Why did you have them out?  Have you tried Arnica tablets?

      Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes I was in tears to 111 and they sent me to out of hours dentist that’s where I got the amoxicillin. I’ve now taken 6 anti biotics and the pain still seems to be getting worse. Everyone I’ve spoke to have said by this stage it should be better not worse. I thought it was possibly dry socket but out of hours dentist didn’t mention anything to do with that.

    Sorry, I hadn’t quite finished my reply to you. 

    Would going to A&E be a good idea?

    Doctors and Dentists tend to stick to their own specialities but if you go to A&E I would expect them to have a Dental specialist on call.

    Hope you’re better soon.

    I had one tooth out and took some strong painkillers which I bought in a chemist . I think they were co codamol . Good luck and let us know how you get on won’t you. 

    Take care
