how long before it stopped hurting. I had the remainder of what tooth was left under a crown removed 10 days ago and am still hurting. There were sutures that fell out, and frankly it feels better without the sutures. It's one of the big teeth on my bottom right. I'm getting it checked on Thursday, so I hoped it's not abcessed. I don't think it is. But it's tender and achy.
I have percocet, which I don't take much of (maybe two a day to sleep) but mostly take just motrin. But I'm going to go into renal failure from taking so much motrin.
Yep, I'm a whimp I guess. But I was expecting just a couple of days of pain. Plus, I had a growth/cyst removed from under my tongue. I know too much info. whine..

I can't say I know how that feels but I am a whole hearted chicken when it comes to dental pain. Could you try icing under your jawline for a short time. OH GEEZE you have my UTMOST SYMPATHY. I hate dental pain..............I actually shake the hand of the dentist every time I am done and thank them for not hurting me. I have almost passed out from pain at the dentist. My first dentist when I was in high school did not numb you when doing cavities. He just drilled without it and said it was not needed and being a first time person to the dentist I did not know any better. I now have a conditioned response where I get shakey and diaphoretic.
