Resolved Question:

I had a tooth removed last Friday (11th March), tonight the gum socket is still quite painful, though it is clean and I returned to my dentist yesterday just to get it verified that it is ok and it is, but why is the gum socket still painful, I do not have a dry socket, and I clean it out regularly

HelloIt can be localized inflammation, and this can go on for several weeks.You should be rinsing at least with salt water.A very effective maneuver is to buy homeopathic calendula tincture, but 5 drops in a quarter cup of water, and rinse throughout the day.This is very effective.Talk with your dentist about this. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
