I had both upper wisdom teeth and one molar on one side removed 3 weeks ago. Did all 3 at once and they had to remove bone as well.


I can eat as normal and there is no discomfort with chewing or biting today however the extraction sites on both sides are sensitive to hot and cold.




Is it abnormal to have sensitivity 3 weeks later?

Well, hopefully you are doing better by now, but YES, that can happen. Easy way to control this, is to get one of the sensitivity type toothpastes, and use it at least twice per day, 1-2 minutes brushing.

Do NOT rinse your mouth after brushing with that, just spit it out as much as possible, as best you can. Otherwise rinsing will just remove it all too soon, so it can't work as well. After a week or so it should be much better feeling.

Thx for the reply. Its now 5 weeks and i still have hot cold sensitivity.... sensodyne doesnt seem to help all that much. Letting food cool or slightly warm up does help though.

These were surgical extractions... i think the dentist left some roots. Does leaving root exasperate hot/cold sensitivity?

It's not likely he left any roots, if the teeth were pulled. Sensitivity like this can sometimes go on for a long time, it depends on the person.

Anyway, the dentist likely sells a "Fluoridex Sensitive" or other brand prescription toothpaste, that has a higher percentage of fluoride and potassium nitrate in it. That will knock down the tooth sensitivity quite a bit if you use it. Call and ask if he'll let you buy some.
