Teeth removal

05/11/2007

Question:

Recently I have had all of my teeth pulled out. Its been almost 2 weeks now and I am still in pain. My gums espically in the front top and bottom. They hurt just as bad as having a tooth ache. I have tried taking pain pills, antibotics. Nothing seems to relieve the pain. Is this abnormal?

Answer:

Yes, it is abnormal. Check with your dentist or with an oral surgeon.
