My lower teeth are tingling after wisdom tooth extraction last week. Is this normal? How long is the recovery time? Everything else if fine.
No: Teeth want to erupt and to migrate forward, not back, to compensate for the wear we don't give our teeth, but that our pre-historic ancestors did.

Can a bone shard come through gum 7 months after wisdom tooth extraction? Can it cause pain in surrounding teeth?
Yes and Unlikely: While 7 months is a bit of a longer than usual time frame for a bony sequestrum to appear, it is certainly not unheard of. Local discomfort akin to splinter is what I'd expect for pain. Pain in surrounding teeth is likely due to something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How many days after wisdom tooth extraction should I brush at wound site ? For now I only rinse with corsodyl and brush other teeth.
After a wisdom tooth extraction is it normal for my teeth on the same side as the extraction to hurt?
Yes: Most likely this is referred pain. The same nerves go to several of the teeth, so if the area of the extraction is starting to ache, then several other teeth may seem like they are also hurting. However, if the pain worsens or doesn't resolve, call the dentist. A local infection is also possible after an extraction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Brush all your teeth: I advise my patients to brush all of their teeth like they normally do, or are supposed to following surgery. They are advised to avoid brushing over the surgical sites the day of surgery, begin brushing lightly over the surgical sites the next day (after 24 hours) and then brush as usual on the second postoperative day (after 48 hours). They are also advised to avoid spitting the first 24 hrs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is dry socket following a wisdom tooth extraction something that i can absolutely avoid? I'm going to have my wisdom teeth pulled soon, and know about dry socket. Is there some bad luck involved in getting it, or if I do everything right, can I avoid it?
This : This question is asked numerous times, and the answer is the same: you can minimized your chances of getting a dry socket, but I do not believe there is a 100% fool proof, guaranteed way for you to avoid it. It is a complication of extracting teeth. Control the bleeding after the extraction by biting on gauze to let the blood clot form in the socket. Then, do not rinse or gargle for 24 hours. If you need to spit out, spit out gently and avoid opening wide (you can pull out the stitches, opening the wound). Eat soft foods, small bites. Have your dentist/surgeon guide you, and you should be fine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
