Does It Hurt To Have A Tooth Pulled
If there is drainage from my tooth being infected does that mean the amoxicillion is working? And does it hurt to have a tooth pulled? I'm scared.

I had one of my bottom lower tooth pulled two days ago and it still very painful. Is this normal and how much longer will it hurt?
Depends: If the tooth was impacted and required an incision and bone removal the pain may take up to a week to resolve entirely. This also depends on the doctor and his skill level. If the pain gets worse at the 3-5 day point and radiates, you may have a dry socket. I usually give my patients pain meds and steroids.

I just got my tooth pulled. Today is day two and the site is all white and it hurts worse today than the first day. Is this normal?
Possibly: If it were a wisdom tooth or difficult extraction, having post-operative pain is somewhat normal and the dentist may have prescribed pain medication.

I had a tooth pulled a week ago and it hurts worse now and side of face hurts, should i be concerned?
Yes: Some soreness is normal, but this sounds a little more than that. Go back to see the Dentist/Oral Surgeon who extracted it for follow-up.
