Sometimes can take a week or more before back to normal.

I remember when I had my fillings re-done, I had pain for around a week!

Try two(202mg) Naproxens twice daily.

If you are looking to steer clear of prescription drugs here are some natural anti-inflammatory agents:


Honestly because you got a tooth extraction I would steer clear of all sugar and just stick with over the counter and some of the agents above that have no natural sugar.

You might try Tumeric and cinnamon in addition to taking the naproxen twice daily. Also try and steer clear of carbohydrates while you're healing as they inflame the body. Same with milk and gluten.

I wish I could say I did follow their orders, but I light up a cig. as soon as I cleared the door. and I regret it. All 4 wisdom teeth with 2 impacted from braces in my early years, but hard booze with the percocet in the sober time helped me through 2 weeks of hell, do as I say not as I do

3 dry sockets

I was a good girl and didn't smoke for 48 hours after. Barely ate either because it hurt. The swelling has gone now anyway, and with it I've discovered it's the tooth next to the extraction site giving me pain. So back to the dentist I go to see if it's because it's been knocked during the process or something. Whoop! Thanks for all the advice, made a note of some stuff for future reference
