Can a wisdom tooth extraction site get infected 3 weeks after removal? I'm having some mouth pains around where they were pulled and some in my neck.
Yes: It is possible that you may have lodged some food debris in the healing extraction socket or that there are some spicules of bone or tooth debris that is still in the socket and is exfoliating. Swelling and bleeding would be indications of infection. It's unlikely a dry socket. Neck pain can possibly be muscle strain or TMJ from procedure. Contact the oral surgeon for an evaluation. ...Read more
Had a left up molar tooth extraction for infected tooth which includes a bone graft. How long should I wait before resuming vigorous exercise?
24hrs: Personally its a up to the patient but I always state 24hr because vigorous exercise will increase blood flow and excessive bleeding does not sit well with patients. ...Read more
I have a deep and very painful hole in my first molar which has given me sleepless nights, I live in Nigeria and as a student I cannot afford the very best dental treatment, I'm considering a tooth extraction but I'm afraid of the pain and possible infect
Difficult Decision: Although it would be best to save the tooth with root canal therapy and a crown, if circumstances and other options are not available, then you will have no choice. The threat of pain and infection is now, not during or after the extraction. Have your teeth examined and have any lesions restored so that you do not loose more teeth. ...Read more
Yes: A tooth extraction is very common and a dentist can probably address the incidence. I know that it is less common for young people today because dentists have found ways to protect teeth compared to people my age (58). Still, any procedure, dental or medical, should be performed only after informed consent. I hope this helps, best wishes. ...Read more
Not sure: If the tooth is removed, then the extraction is successful. There can be instances where for various reasons, the dentist may need to leave a small piece of tooth. Usually there would be more damage in removing the small piece rather than leaving it. However, a patient should always be informed if this is the case. In addition, follow up care may be needed if a piece of tooth left causes issues. ...Read more
Several: Any surgical procedure carries some risks and possible complications. Your dentist or surgeon should discuss these with you prior to performing the procedure.

Spicy foods after...: It depends on how soon after tooth extraction. Immediately after oral surgery, you should be on a liquid diet, then a very soft diet, and gradually returning to a normal diet over several days. Spicy foods may cause discomfort or a burning sensation, but probably won't cause any serious injury. The consistency is more important than the spiciness. Good luck! ...Read more
Hummmmm: I would be careful if an upper molar was extracted. The air could cause pressure changes in the sinus and cause an opening between the sinus and mouth thriough the socket. Either take a few days off, or very low pressures. Otherwise, CPAP should not be a problem for the remainder of the mouth. ...Read more
The danger after extraction is a dry socket.
This results from a clot never forming or being lost. You can't control a clot never forming, but you can control a clot being dislodged or lost. Spices foods may burn, but the won't dislodge the clot.
Alcohol, excessively hot temp foods, hard rough foods, that's what to avoid in the first few days. Remember to eat on the opposite side! ...Read more
If abscessed tooth: Then the removal could promote drainage, and some could/would be normal and beneficial. If the drainage is persistent and new after a few days, then you need further evaluation for non-resolving abscess, another source, retained root tip, another fascial space involved with infection that was not drained, infection tracked via needle, bony fragments, etc. ...Read more

Very!: Unless it is a primary (baby) tooth which is about to come out, or a tooth severely loosened by gum disease, removal without anesthetic would be excruciating. A fine network of fibers connect tooth roots to surrounding bone. Nerves share space with those fibers and larger nerves enter each tooth. Severing those nerves and fibers is more painful than most would be willing to tolerate. ...Read more
Can't say: Without seeing it and knowing the history it is impossible to give you a straight answer. It may be nothing to worry about, the gums is healing and new tissue is trying to cover the area. If you have no pain you should not worry about it. If it is painful and the bump is getting bigger or bleeding you should call your dentist. ...Read more
Problems?: Do you have problems following your extraction? Regardless of the cause, call your surgeon if you do. ...Read more
Red, Yellow, Gray...: Unless the extraction site is completely covered by sutured gums, it is likely that you see clotting/clotted blood in the socket. Careful not to lose this blood clot, as it is nature's bandaid to protect the healing wound. The color will be red, then dark red to start. As the blood components break down, this color becomes more yellowish, then paler ; paler gray. The gums ; bone continue to grow. ...Read more
Depends: Based on how difficult the extraction was and if bone had to be cut out it may be a bit early to smoke. The blod clot that stimulates the bone to fill the socket needs to be firmly established before smoking again. ...Read more
