3 weeks ago, I had a molar extracted ("difficult extraction"). I returned for novacaine shots twice. Then 2x to another oral surgeon (my periodontist was away) and cried through most of the visit (fear and unbearable pain). They both say no infection but I still have bleeding, pain, and referred pain to jaw, gland in neck, ear, and upper molar(!). I'm scared to go back but tylenol and advil (and ice) are not enough and I've been taking Percocet every day (I only had one day that it wasn't needed). I'm also using the brown paste with gauze a couple of times a day (and anbesol at night). I don't know what to do. And I'm petrified that the dentist will make it worse or think I'm exaggerating.
