Please help! tooth pain after wisdom teeth extraction?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Theodore Davantzis
39 years experience in Dentistry
Tooth pain: If your adjacent teeth hurt following the extraction, they may have been inflamed by the procedure, or the pain may be radiating down one of the alveolar nerves. Best bet is to call the surgeon who extracted the tooth.
