Ahh I hady tooth extracted #30 back molar, two months ago, I got too much novacaine shots in my jawbone that it caused me to have tmj inflamation;/ make sure you get no more then 3 I got 6 it was the worst mistake of my life! It's a ease to get it out believe me just take good care of it leave the cotton on after it bleeds for an hour then change it. In the night rinse your mouth out with salt water. Do this every time after eating. Mine is healthy :) cause I took good care of it till this day I deal with scalp tenderness and ear aches ;/ as we as forehead pain. Make sure to take your medication prescribed ! Best of luck any more questions please feel free to ask me don't be scared okay remember tooth extraction pain is temporary !
