7 Side Effects Of Dental Extraction

  • Saw you article on tooth extraction complications. It has been 3 days since I had a back tooth extracted due to a root canal gone bad. I have been having sinus pain on that side, and pain in the area of the extracted tooth. I have been rinsing with salt water, and I brush my teeth with tooth paste, but am careful not to touch the injured area. I also rinse with mouth wash. My dentist did not give me any antibiotics to prevent infection. Is this proper practice? How long must I wait for the pain to go away? Should I call him and ask for an antibiotic perscription?
