Tooth extraction: is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain and swelling and bad taste following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. If you have undergone the tedious procedure of surgical extraction, these symptoms are common. If after 7 days no improvement, see your dentist or an oral surgeon for post-op appointment.
