Default Wisdom tooth extraction concerns

I had my top two wisdom teeth removed 1 week and 2 days ago. I'm 30 years old so the roots were long and my left side was more difficult to remove. I know this because I was awake for the operation. I still have pain that comes and goes on both sides and I've had a worsening headache for the last two days. The swelling is gone. But the gums on my left side look kind of strange and I included a picture. It's really awkward to get A good picture of it.

I have randomly been feeling dizzy and disoriented. But I can't tell if I'm having anxiety from being so far away from my dentist and doctor or if I might really have an infection. I have a history of anxiety and have had panic attacks in the past.

I just moved over the weekend and I am in a place that would be really difficult to get to a dentist and nobody here takes my coverage. It would be possible for me to go back to my old dentist but it's about a 5 Hour drive.

My Mood: Wisdom tooth extraction concerns
Default

Hi Blueshores,

From the photos you posted, that round area of extra tissue can be a granuloma. It also looks like you have some ulcerations or ulcerated tissue behind it higher up in the fold of tissue. It is not uncommon for either of these things to develop after an extraction.

The granuloma can heal on it's own if there is no infection or it can get quite large. So it is best to have a quick consult with an oral surgeon to get a definitive diagnosis.

I would suggest that you locate a local oral surgeons office an explain you just moved long distance and had 2 upper wisdom teeth extracted prior to moving. You have developed bumps of tissue above the second molar and would like a quick consult to examine the area. The fee would be minimal and best to have this evaluated.

Make sure to keep the area clean, use a soft bristle tooth brush with gentle but thorough brushing... also brush and floss everywhere else to keep the buildup of overall plaque to a minimum. It would also help to rinse with warm salt water 3-4 times a day for about 2 weeks or so, especially after pm brushing.
