How long does the pain last after getting tooth pulled out?

Not Long: Have you asked about taking an NSAID like Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen)? They can eliminate almost all of the pain if you start them early enough. Avoid smoking or drinking through a straw as this can cause a "dry socket" where the hole from the tooth doesn't close up. Warm saline rinses can also help if ok with your dentist just don't get too vigorous and stir things up. Pain should be gone in 3 or 4 days.. ...Read more

How long do I have to waite after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front

How long do I have to waite  after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front

2d: No hot/spicy: When you eat after an extraction food will inevitably get into the socket where a blood clot is protecting the bone. Hot, or spicy foods may irritate the area to the degree that the clot may be lost resulting in a very painful "dry socket" that will take 3x longer to heal. More important is not to rinse vigorously or brush the area for 2 days until the clot stabilizes. If sutures: nothing sharp. ...Read more

Sometimes : Sometimes an extracted tooth can be replaced immediately after an extraction. More often than not, it is better to wait until the bone has filled in either partially or completely before placing an implant. There are a lot of factors to consider for example, the amount of remaining bone, whether or not there was an infection present, the type or hardness of the bone, the position of your remaining teeth, whether or not the extracted tooth is a lower or upper tooth and whether or not it is a front or back tooth. Each case has to be evaluated individually and i would suggest that you discuss this with your dentist in order to make an intelligent decision as to when to replace that missing tooth. ...Read more
