Has anyone ever had a delayed infection from an extracted tooth? I had my last lower tooth removed 4 weeks ago. In that time I've had cracks to the corner of my mouth and treated for oral thrush in the last 2 weeks. I thought maybe caused by my dentures. After initially feeling like I had a bruise under my jawbone when I touched it a week ago I've developed a swelling. Managed to get an emergency appointment and although the xray shows a healing socket and nothing around the jaw I've been given antibiotics as my dentist feels there is no other reason on examination than a delayed infection. Any help would be great.Thanks.
