Not a pain killer: Penicillin is an antibiotic, not a pain killer. If your pain is caused by swelling from an infection it usually takes 24-48 hours for an antibiotic to start reducing the infection. If the pain is not caused by an infection then it will not help at all. The problem will not go away, however, until the cause is addressed and the impacted tooth removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does an impacted wisdom tooth mean for extraction? I've been told that one of my wisdom teeth is impacted. Does that make extraction more difficult than normal? Is there a longer recovery time?
An : An impacted tooth is one that has not fully erupted into the mouth and is, to some degree, still covered gum tissue and / or bone. A fully impacted tooth is completely covered by bone. An impacted tooth does not necessarily have to be more difficult to extract than an erupted tooth for two reasons: 1. An impacted tooth may not have completed root formation. Besides having less tooth structure to remove, partially formed roots may not be curved at their tips and thus can be easier to remove. 2. When a tooth is fully erupted and in function, the bone around it consolidates (or hardens) in response to the function. This may make the tooth more difficult to remove. Impacted teeth may be more difficult to remove for the following reasons: 1. There is a significant amount of bone and / or soft tissue covering them making access more difficult. 2. Impacted teeth may be closely related to vital structures such as nerves and the sinuses making extraction more challenging. 3. Impacted teeth may be angled in ways that make it more difficult to extract them. I recommend an evaluation by a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon to better determine the necessity of extraction and the degree of difficulty that may be encountered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Enucleation of cyst: Pain, tenderness to palpation, and dysphagia can sometimes linger for several weeks and this is all within normal limits. Warm salt water rinses, analgesics, and sometimes topical anesthetic gargling can temporarily help, but allow time for normal healing. This was surgery, like any other procedure on a leg, arm, abdomen, etc. Post operative pain is normal and narcotics will help but not 100%. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
