On Friday around 4 PM I have my two left wisdom teeth extracted. Neither was impacted both had a lot of decay etc. but the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes after the local anastetic kicked in. It has been 60 hours since the procedure......... I have had almost no pain on th eleft side of my mouth however the right side of my mouth has been in a great amount of pain ever since. I cannot sleep.. I have tried Vicodin, Percocet, IBuprofen 800, Sensodyne on the gums, Orajel on the gums, minced garlic oil on the gums, Ice............. rincing my mouth with salt water, and cold water. The only thing that has provided any amount of relieve is holding water in my mouth on the right side of my mouth constantly which obviously doesn't work as a solution for trying to go to sleep. I am going to call my dentis in a few hours when they finally reopen but I'm supposed to work in 3 and 1/2 hours and have had maybe 8 hours of sleep since friday. Does anyone have any idea why the right side of my mouth would be in such pain after having wisdom teeth removed from the left side? My guess is that I have an infection or it could be a cavity or possibly something to do with two crowns i have on the right side of my mouth and swolen gums............. something like this I have no real idea. The actual wisdom extraction spot feels fine........ so this is very perplexing. Most importantly any advice for pain relief that might actually allow me to catch a few hours of sleep would be great.
