Sorry but: There is no good answer that i could give you over the internet. I suggest that you continue to follow your dentist's instructions, take some otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you would take for a headache; call your dentist and ask to be seen for post op evaluation. Perhaps he\she has a 24 hr emergency answering service.
