Not common, call DDS: We know nothing about you, your medical history and the degree of difficulty of the extraction. What you describe is not common and may or may not be related to the surgery. What to do:? Start by contacting the dentist who removed your tooth. He\she can discuss this issue further, decide whether or not you should be seen in the office and\or referred to your own physician to rule out medical cause
