      Default Pain and soreness 3 weeks after extraction

      I had upper left wisdom and lower 7 molar extracted three weeks ago by OS at hospital with a local. All went well and over very quickly. Had antibx and took Ibuprofen and Paracetamol for about a week afterwards.

      Healing seemed to be going fine but in last few days my gums feel very sore --- especially the lower gum and very slightly swollen. Last year I had lower 7 molar on other side and the healing didn't last as long as this.

      Does 3 weeks seem overly long for things still not to have settled down ? Should I go to dentist ?

      Worth going back to check that there isn't a bony spicule coming through. Nothing to worry about if there is, btw!
