I have been taking anti-inflammatory drugs for the third day after pulling out wisdom teeth. Is this my inflammation? Or is it dry socket
According to the picture, you have stitches after pulling out your wisdom teeth. It is recommended that you strictly follow the medication plan of the local doctor and continue to take anti-inflammatory drugs for a few days. At present, there is no obvious redness and swelling in the picture. It is OK. You should pay attention to the light liquid or semi liquid diet in the recent period, and you'd better review the recovery after a week. Pay attention to oral hygiene.
According to the picture, your wisdom teeth are still sutured after tooth extraction. Considering that the wound is relatively large and the pain is normal now, it is recommended not to worry too much. Take drugs on time according to the doctor's advice and pay more attention to oral hygiene for more than 24 hours. You can also brush your teeth to avoid causing bacterial infection and dry socket disease. If it is really painful, you can also go to the hospital for review and be treated by the doctor according to the specific situation.
During wisdom tooth eruption, the eruption position is not correct. After extraction under local anesthesia, there should be no big problem in the picture. You can gargle with some compound chlorhexidine mouthwash, take some cefixime and metronidazole anti-inflammatory treatment to prevent infection, avoid eating spicy and stimulating food in the near future, maintain oral hygiene, and eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.
