I am a newbie and would value anyone's advice.
On Thursday morning I had my upper left wisdom tooth and the two teeth in front of it removed under conscious sedation (which is wonderful by the way). I had advanced gum disease around the two teeth in front of the wisdom tooth, and had been in pain on and off for about 6 weeks before the dentist finally agreed to take them out, (I have also been on three lots of antibiotics in that time).
My query is, how long should I be in pain for? It is worse today (3rd day) then it was yesterday. I have been taking anti inflammatory tablets (twice a day) and pain killers (cocadmol or max strength ibuprofen) as and when, but the pain is worse today.
