Hi everyone: I am hoping my dental phobia is not getting the best of me here, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that something is going on in my mouth. I had an impacted wisdom tooth surgically removed on Friday and the pain is becoming unbearable, even with pain killers. I called my dentist's office yesterday and the receptionist basically just told me that I'm old lol (I'm only 40!) and that my body would take more time to heal than a younger person. It just doesn't feel like it should be getting worse at this point...5 days later. I couldn't sleep last night as I have harsh nerve-type pain in my jaw. It radiates into all of my teeth at this point. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't think it's dry socket as the hole was stitched up. I'm thinking maybe an infection but there is no weird smell. Am I just too paranoid. Why do all my other teeth hurt? It reminds me of the kind of pain I felt when I needed root canal. Help!
