Possible causes: The anesthetic (if you were put to sleep), as well as the pain meds you might be taking can cause a queasy stomach. Then there is the stress of actually having the extraction. As always, it could something totally unrelated, like something you've eaten. Feel better soon...
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
Call your dentist: There are chances that you have post extraction infection or pain medication side effects. You should consult proper course of medication or medication adjustment with your dentist.
Dr. Robert Landman
Dentistry 32 years experience
Sick: There are a number of different possibilities, including coincidence. Best if you speak to the surgeon/ dentist who treated you as they know you , know your medical history best and how the procedure went.
