Difficult molar was extracted Friday. Today is Tuesday. After extraction I took acetaminophen. Pain was not strong. Bleeding stopped fairly quickly same day. I have been careful not to touch extracted area and have gargled in warm salt water. Yesterday discomfort level increased. Maybe it's just soreness. Dentist said extraction was difficult as he had to drill a lot and take out rotted tooth in portions. Still I feel discomfort, soreness or pain at a low level. I am scheduled to return to dentist one week from today. Have a long trip at end of month. Getting worried.
