See a dentist


Best is to find out why you have a toothache..the dentist can find the cause and treat it accordingly. In the meantime, motrin/tylenol/aleve may provide some relief. Look in your mouth, if you have whitish ulcer on the gum (aphthous ulcer), this can cause aching tooh as well--but this will heal in a week or so with/out treatment. Consult your dentist/doc. Good luck

why i still have a tooth pain after dry socket treatment( medicated dressing )?

Likely infection


The topical pain killers in dry socket dressings are designed to provide quick acting and sometimes short term relief while the underlying infection starts to resolve. Since that infection can take up to a week to resolve, it is common for pain to recur and require replacement of the dry socket dressing a few times while managing the condition. Systemic painkillers like ibuprofen are very helpful.

How long?


How long has it been since the dry socket paste was placed into the socket? It takes some time for the medication to work and for the healing process to resume. However, depending upon the circumstances, you should discuss this issue with your dentist who may need to replace the medication and make sure there is no infection and that everything is on the path to recovery.

Not healed yet


Dry socket paste helps calm the inflammed tissues and takes much of the pain away, but that doen't mean that you won't still be sore... the extraction was a surgery. Speak to your surgeon for advice regarding OTC pain meds or prescription narcotics if the pain is that bad. Feel better soon.

Dry socket


It is common to have pain after an extraction. It sounds as if you had a dry socket and the dentist placed some dry socket paste. This dressing may need to be replaced again a couple of times for the dry socket to resolve. I would go see the dentist and have him clean the area and place more paste. The extraction site should start feeling better a little bit every day. If not, something is wrong.

Think too late


Biodentine was probably used to seal off a very small nerve exposure from cleaning out a deep cavity. Its a great product if the nerve has not deteriorated already. Because your tooth still hurts, you need to visit your dentist again. He will check the filling that was placed over the Biodentine. If there is not a high spot that could be causing this pain, then you probably need a Root Canal.

 Dental pain Filling Obstruction Occlusion Root canal Teeth Tooth pain Pain

The tooth


probably has a very deep filling with pulpal approximation or slight pulpal exposure which is why biodentine was used. If the pain is still present and the occlusion is normal, then the tooth probably need to be treated endodontically (root canal)

See dentist


Your brother needs to see a dentist to see what is causing the redness and painful areas, sometimes antibiotics cause the normal bacteria of the mouth to die and allows fungal infections to develop, he may need a antifungal to help with the sores and the numbing meds like Oragel can increase the soreness and sore spots

Can you get dry and painful throat from a tooth pain ( wisdom tooth ) upon eating on it ? Can it get serious like spread to the brain

Answered by:

Possibly- see below


Symptoms similar to a sore throat can come from a wisdom tooth- wouldn't normally be described as "dry". Inflamed gums around affected teeth can mimic symptoms from a throat infection, and an infection from a wisdom tooth can spread towards your throat. Any dental infection can spread to the brain, although it is not very common but nfections of these types need to be evaluated and treated ASAP.

Dental care ASAP.


Like a splinter in your finger, dental pain exists because there is a problem. Would you take pain medication and antibiotics to manage the splinter? Not likely: you would take it out! See your dentist. Solve the problem. Take fewer meds & be well :-)
