2 separate problems: 1. Neck and lower head pain. See your PCP. 2. Pain and swelling following dental extraction is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery, after that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. Three month following surgery it's not OK. Time to call your dentist and to check the gum pain. Maybe another tooth needs attention?

NO: Most cases do not have post-op problems extending for several months. It is more likely due to another cause. See you surgeon for any questions or see your dentist to evaluate your mouth for any other injuries, afflictions, or reasons for the pain.
