Customer Question

My extraction sites are severely painful and I have a few painful ulcers as well. If my dentist is closed tomorrow, should I go to another dentist? Or employee health where I work?
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: The pain has increasing from a level 3-8 in past week. Eating makes it worse. Salt water rinses make it better. Baking soda rinse helps. Tylenol and Motrin were working but I feel like it's now contributing to ulcer pain
