I`m intense pain please help!!!
I had a tooth pulled 4 days ago. Now I`m still feeling intense pain. I can`t take the pain meds really make me sick. How much longer should this pain continue and is there anything else I can do to sooth the pain a little??
You need to check with your dentist as to the expected duration of pain after tooth extraction. It depends on the pathology/reason for tooth removal. If your dentist cannot find a reason for persistent pain, you may see a Pain Medicine specialist.
