Ear pain after tooth extraction

Ear pain after tooth extraction

Shooting pain in the ear after tooth extraction can occur due to damage to the gums, periosteum or nerve. In this case, the nearby tooth also hurts, and the pain also goes to the jaw, and the throat can also hurt. Particularly worried about the pain in the ear after the removal of the wisdom tooth – the eighth molar.

This is due to the structural features of wisdom teeth, as well as the fact that it is very difficult to reach them. Consequently, both tissue damage and nerve endings are greater than when other teeth are removed.

But, as a rule, nothing terrible in this. After the removal of the tooth, the usual reaction of the body to external intervention develops, because the damaged tissues and nerve endings need some time to recover.

If the pain is very severe, visit your dentist. He will recommend rinsing to relieve inflammation, and painkillers to reduce pain.

If the pain in the ear appeared a few days after the removal of the tooth, including the wisdom tooth, and at the same time there is a strange taste in the mouth, it is possible that the complication began – the so-called “dry hole”. In other words, an infection has got into the hole after the extraction of the tooth.

You may not have listened to the recommendations of the dentist and rinsed your mouth on the first day after the intervention. After the removal of the tooth in the hole remains a blood clot, which can neither be rinsed nor removed: it protects the nerve endings and the bone and is needed for the formation of bone tissue after tooth extraction.

It is for this reason that dentists prohibit eating hot food and rinsing your mouth on the first day after surgery. When a blood clot dissolves too quickly, it creates a feeling that the ear also hurts.

The second reason is the development of such complications as alveolitis.

  • the pain not only does not subside, but becomes stronger;
  • pain occurs 2-4 days after surgery;
  • pain worries constantly, without interruption;
  • there is a shooting pain in the ear, eye, temple, lower jaw or chin;
  • body temperature may rise;
  • putrid breath;
  • swollen lymph nodes and pain when swallowing.

With a dry well, the dentist will put tampons on it with a special ointment. They should be changed daily until the symptoms pass.

In case of alveolitis, the doctor will clean the well from suppuration and treat it with an antiseptic.

Ideally, when an earache occurs, after an extraction of the tooth, an ENT specialist must also appear, in order to rule out irregularities in the work of the upper respiratory tract.
