Hi, I had my lower wisdom tooth extracted about a year 1/2 ago. It was a very simple extraction. I did have an infection around the tooth though. The last week or so, I've been getting a dull ache occasionally around the same area. It seems to be getting worse. I was able to get Penicillin and have taken it the last 6 days. Doesn't seem to be clearing anything up. It doesn't feel like it has anything to do with any of my other back teeth. I don't have any sensitivity to cold/heat or sweets. I'll admit, I really, really don't like going to dentists! I had an amazing one the last 5 or so years but he has now retired. Any ideas?
