I have just gotten a tooth pulled about 2hrs ago and it hurts really bad. What do I do?
The tooth was infected.
The tooth was broken off and the rest was inside my gums.
I have MOTRIN for the pain but doesn't seem to be working.
It wont stop bleeding, but I keep gauze on it.
warm water and salt. Wash it in your month then spit it out. See if that would help a little.
well put ice on it it would stopall the swelling and cure the pain .. eat soft things.
hope i helped. =]
whatever you do dont smoke cuz that dry socket aint no joke. call your dentist and see about getting some antibiotics and some stronger pain pills. in the mean time gargle with salt & warm water. good luck man i feel for you.
I just got 2 teeth pulled 4 hours ago and one is still bleeding. My dentist reccomended that I put on cold tea bags. It stopped the bleeding. If that doesnt work call the dentist
Call the dentist office and tell him to give you a pain killer. something like tylenol #3 will really. help and destract the pain away for like 4 hours.
Sorry to tell you but there really isn't anything else you can do. Your dentist gave you Motrin. That's what we do also. It's only been two hours. Give it some time and it will start to feel better. The bleeding will stop soon. A few hours for it to continue bleeding is normal. The harder you bite down on the gauze the sooner it will stop. Don't drink with a straw today or it will start to bleed again.
Maybe give it a day or two to settle down, and if that doesn't work, maybe see a doctor or take some pain relieving tablets.
You can remove the gauze & gargle with warm salt water.
If you have food in you, you can safely take up to 800 mg. of Motrin every 6 hours.
Call your doctor tomorrow & ask for something stronger.
Follow Dr Albert's instructions. He gets best answer.
The tanins in the tea bag promote coagulation.
I used 4 advil 3 times a day for 2 days for the pain & swelling (per Doc's instructions) and I used an ice bag on the side of my face - in fact I slept on it.

FOR THE BLEEDING USE A COLD. WET TEABAG AND PLACE IT OVER THE EXTRACTION SITE.DO NOT HAVE GUAZE IN BETWEEN. KEEP THE BAG IN PLACE FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES W/O REMOVING IT AND DO NOT PLAY WITH THE EXTRACTED SITE OR USE STRAWS OR EAT ANY FOODS THAT WILL GET STUCK IN THE SOCKET.
IT TAKES IBUPROFEN SOME TIME TO WORK.
