Can you get a canker sore after a tooth extraction?

????

Canker_sore
YES, but the extraction is NOT the cause of the canker sore. The virus that causes the sores is IN your system. The extraction just "stresses" the body to react to the virus.

What can cause my gum to be getting more sore (after tooth extraction)?

Evaluation

Teeth
Most extractions heal uneventfully, but sometimes there are complications. Have your dentist evaluate you for dry socket, or even a sharp edge of bone poking through the gum. You did not say how long ago the tooth was extracted.

How long does soreness last after tooth extraction?

One day to

Contact_dermatitis
14 days is my standard answer. Depends on which tooth , the condition of the area prior to surgery, the surgical difficulty, your oral hygiene efficiency, your immune system/healing response and many other factors. Medication for the soreness should help. NSAIDS are usually excellent. Ask your surgeon.

For what length of time your gums sore after a tooth extraction?

Extraction pain

Tooth_extraction
Everyday after the extraction, you should improve and should have little pain after a few days. If after three or four days you start to get pain again, you could have a dry socket and must go back to the dentist.

Hard sore bumps after wisdom tooth extraction. What could this be from?

Post Extraction

Tooth_extraction
Hard sore bumps after wisdom tooth extraction? This question requires more information such as time frame after surgery, location of sore areas etc. In any case I suggest that you return to the performing health care provider for an exam and to evaluate whether you are healing appropriately and have your concerns addressed.

Should my cheek and gum be getting more sore after having tooth extraction?

Sore cheek & gum

Cheek
Some post-operative discomfort is normal after an extraction. You now have a wound in your mouth. The amount of discomfort depends on the difficulty of the extraction, the size of the infection, and the amount of bone removed. Assuming you are following your surgeon's post-op advice, the pain will subside over the next 3-5 days. If not, call or return to the surgeon.

I just had a tooth extraction now my throat is getting sore. Is this normal?

Not unusual

Neck-throat
But then again, you may be coincidentally coming down with a sore throat. Visit the surgeon who extracted the tooth to see if it is healing well... then visit your physician for that sore throat.

Iv just had 2 tooth extractions, now I'm suffering from a sore throat, can this be due to tooth extraction?

Probably not

Throat_pain
Unless you had general anesthesia and were incubated for the procedure (breathing tube placed). That could cause a sore throat.

How common is jaw soreness and stiffness after wisdom tooth extraction? I'm having my wisdom tooth extracted in a few weeks. A friend could hardly open her mouth for over a week after she had hers out. How likely is it this will happen to me? .

Different strokes

Stiffness
Some people have more extensive surgery than others. That's like saying 2 people, both with broken legs, have different Rx...one has a walking cast, the other a cast from toes to hip. Your oral Surgeon will go over pain management instructions with you. Follow those instructions to the letter and you should be OK. Hope you do better than your friend.
