Q.

TOOTH EXTRACTION

The dentist removed my one tooth and I could still feel everything she did as my mouth wasnt completely numb before she started. Now my chinbone is so sore and swollen and my mouth pains like crazy leaving me with very little sleep and I dont know what to take to easy the pain. Can I rinse my mouth with something or what type of painkiller will help?

if the extraction was done today then do not rinse.
if there is a swelling present, there may be an infection causing it. antibiotics may be necessary. Return to the dentist and have it seen to- I cannot advise any painkiller without a proper medical history
