I went to the dentist for a toothache and he told me the two teeth i needed pulled were infected, so I asked should I start antibiotics and come back and he said NO, I will go ahead and pull it today. By 6 that evening I began to experience severe pain on the opposite side of my mouth from where he had pulled the teeth. The pain was so severe I went to the ER and all they did was give me a shot for pain and nausea and send me home. It has been 2 1/2 weeks since my teeth were pulled and I am still experiencing severe pain which has now radiated into my sinus cavity and ear. My neck and ear are very swollen. Do you think it was malpractice for him to pull my teeth while infected before any antibiotics were administered?
