Default Wisdom Teeth Complications

Hello! I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted on 9/5. Went back on 9/9 because I was having horrible jaw pain, ear pain, and throbbing. OS said I had 2 dry sockets. They packed them and told me to come back on 9/11. Went back on 9/11 and they removed the packing and put more packing in but the dissolvable kind. Called on 9/13 because I was having horrible achiness and lain in the my lower front teeth and the worst sinus pressure ever in my nose and eyes. They called me back late in the day on 9/13 and said it if was still happening by 9/16 to call them back.

I have no idea what could be causing the sore bottom teeth, that hurt way more than the extracted teeth, and the horrible sinus pressure. My face just hurts all over.

Hi Jessica,

I'm sorry for your difficulties....

You may be grinding your teeth which could cause the lower front teeth to ache. If you wear a night guard or an ortho retainer, it may need to be adjusted as your bite may be different post op extractions.

Your lower teeth could also ache from referred pain as the posterior jaw bone was manipulated to remove the teeth. Do the teeth hurt just to touch them or only if you use them to eat? Do you notice the pain is worse in the AM or PM?

Which areas had dry sockets?

Sinus pressure and inflammation are normal post op wisdom tooth extraction. So is facial pain. This could last for a few days up to several weeks... gradually decreasing in intensity. Applying warm MOIST compresses to the outside of your face can help reduce the pain and get the circulation flowing.

Do you have any unusual discharge or blood coming from your nose?

Do you smoke? Smoking can cause additional inflammation and pain, dry sockets, and slow healing.

Are you rinsing with warm salt water 3 times a day and brushing and flossing all of your teeth twice a day? This rinsing should be continued until the surgical wounds are closed. Are you using a syringe of any type to remove debris from the wounds? If so, use it gently and only twice day unless you get something caught.

Thank you so much!

I dont grind at night usually so no night guard. They hurt all the time but the pain is definitely worse in the evenings/night.

The dry sockets were in the 2 bottom teeth. I know the OS told my husband that some bone had to be ground down to get a tooth out but Im not sure which tooth it occurred on.

The sinus pressure and inflammation is horrible. Some of the worse Ive ever felt. Along with the earache. Ill put the warm compresses on my face. Several weeks is a long time. Lol.

No discharge or blood and Im not a smoker.

I was told not to salt water rinse while I had the packing in but have a couple times to clean out debris. One of the dry so kets had the packing dissolve and while tender is closing. The other side still seems to have the dissolvable packing in it and shows no sign of closing. That is the side the sinus and ear pain are worst on.
