Customer Question
Just reading up on...

Just reading up on why my mouth, jaw and gums and other teeth hurt so much after having 4 teeth extracted 4 days ago. It is still extremely painful and I am desperate for relief.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain?

Yes it is swollen on the side I had them pulled, been putting ice on and off for 15 minutes at a time, getting very little relief from anything I try though

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

No nothing I can think of, I had the one tooth pulled because it was a cavity and hurting so that is the reason they pulled the one the others were wisdom teeth

Hi, so sorry to hear that you are in so much discomfort now.

Were you given any antibiotics and if so what?

Is the swelling and pain more from the area of the wisdom tooth or from one of the other teeth?

Were pain medications prescribed? If so, what?

Thanks.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
