Wed I had 2 extractions. I had 2 molars that had broken off a while back and had the roots removed last wed. First concern is my upper lip and nose and left cheek are still numb. Not completely numb, i have feeling, but its very heavy feeling and cant move those muscles well. They numbed most of my mouth as i had 3 crowns and 2 extractions. They had to numb me several times and i did feel pain during both extractions. I was on antibiotics for 5 days prior to appointment. Should i still be numb or is this permanent nerve damage? I am also still swollen. I cant see the extraction site of my upper 2nd molar root that was pulled but my lower 1st molar extraction site i can see. I dont really see a blood clot though. Just tissue. The whole isnt that deep but more long. Should i have lost my blood clot this soon? I didnt see it yesterday either. But i have no pain. No discharge either. Am i just healing fast? Maybe since it was only roots it wasnt as deep? I just hate reading conflicting info on dry socket. Some say 2-3 days and others say 5-7. I did many things i now know i shouldn't have. Ate hot soup, drank soda, and rinsed night of operation. I cant find images of what a healthy extraction site should look like. Should i worry about either of these things?
