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.

Help! My gums are turning white and is tender after extraction?

Gum or clot?

Sore
Please see the dentist ASAP. Tenderness after extraction is common--usually most pronounced in the first 48 hrs. As for the "white gums", you may be seeing the clotted blood in the socket--it will turn color from dark red to pale yellow then into almost white. This is normal, but if the gum is turning white instead, the gum may not be getting enough circulation. This needs dentist's exam & help.

Sore gums due to dentures? I've had dentures for about a year now, but recently have been experiencing constant mild gum pain on both my upper and lower jaw. Is this likely due to something being wrong with my dentures, or them no longer fitting right?

Changes in gums

False_teeth
Your gums and bone may have changed allowing the denture to press extra on certain spots. These are called denture sore spots and the dentures may need adjusting by the dentist.

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.

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.

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

Sore palate after upper molar extraction?

Rare but could occur

Palate
You may feel sore due to the needle injected on the palatal side of the extraction site to get the tooth numb. If the extraction is a surgical extraction, inflammation could cause the area to feel sore. With antibiotics and may be anti-inflammatory drug giving pre and post op, you should be fine in 3 days (when you find out if you have dry socket or not)

Dr. R Lee Hinson answered:

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.

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.
