If a dentist can not visualize certain cavities he/she will advice an ☓ ray that will give a clear picture of the situation. Complete healing after a Surgical removal of wisdom tooth takes at least 1 month but pain would be related to tooth adjacent to one removed so let your dentist take an X ray first and decide.
Your xrays will be more helpful for us to make a judgement about your problem.... nonetheless, horizontally positioned teeth, if not extracted for a long time, can definitely cause cavities in the adjacent teeth..... the healing of the extraction site should have been more or less complete by now and the pain most likely must be because of some other tooth... Regards.....
Hi.. sometimes bone healing takes more time. So still there will be some pain in extracted tooth area. If pain is more then it could be cavity of next tooth for which you need root canal treatment.
Hello, tooth pain after extraction of wisdom teeth quite normal which can be subsided by medication..we need to check clinically to know the actual cause.It can be post operative pain or decay of adjacent tooth etc.visit nearby dentist.
First of all relax and get an x-ray done of that particular area. Horizontal wisdom tooth sometimes causes problem to adjacent tooth. Check out for any problem in adjacent tooth. Cavity or anything else. If diagnosed from x-ray then your demtist will advise you the related treatment plan. If everything is ok then only medications will do.
Many times the teeth adjacent to horizontally impacted wisdom tooth have cavity kindly get it checked and treated..the pain may be due to cavity..
