sensitive to cold/sharp pains 2 months after extraction
Roughly two months ago I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted. The procedure itself went as well as one could expect, and it took me about 2-3 weeks to make a full recover. around the second week, I started feeling sharp nerve pains in my mouth, which dispated about the beginning of week 3 post extractions. I didn't have anymore problems up until about a week or two weeks ago. I started experiencing sensitivity to ice water, and other cold foods on my teeth. I wasn't too alarmed because I expected that might happen after my wisdom teeth were extracted. About three days ago however, I started experiencing these wondering nerve pains in my mouth on top of the sensitivity to cold. Is this normal for people who have had extracted teeth? Could it be an exposed root?
