I had a molar extracted after several years of root canal and infections. At the time of extraction, the tooth had pushed the infection down into my jawe bone. The pain has gotten worse eversay sice extraction. I went back to the dentist thinking he could give me a prescription for anitbiotics and he treated it as dry socket. He put some medication down in the hole, which only numbed my mouth and not down into the jaw where it hurts and is swollen. The medication he put in said would only take a few minutes to take effect and after 2 hours it fell out. I have had teeth pulled before and never had dry socket. I have had infections, which this feels like. Which do you think it would be?
