After one month I am still having pain. The oral surgeon has givin me two packs of antibiotics and now says that he may have to shave the bone. What does that exactly mean and how would that allleviate the pain?
If you had an extraction done, the bone underneath the area could be sharp or there could be some small pieces which are sharp and cutting the gums, causing pain. He may need to go in there to smooth out the bone or move these pieces.
The Oral surgeon cut the gum and shaved the bone about 10 days ago. After the procedure I was in a great deal of pain for a tleast 3 days. It has now subsided but there still remains the orginal pain before the procedure. Will this pain ever go away or am I doomed for another type of procedure?Thank so much Dr Tsang
Sorry. I'm surprised the pain is still present after the procedure. You should contact your oral surgeon and find out what they recommend doing. Shaving the bone should have solved the problem if there was some sharp bone underneath the area.
