My mom recently had her tooth extracted, about a week ago. However, she has been experiencing pain and sensitivity, while drinking or eating cold food/drinks. And also has lost her appetite. What can be done?

Pain and sensitivity may be due to other teeth if you can take follow up visit of your dentist, it will be better for your mom. Appetite will become normal within 21 days.

Sometimes after difficult extraction similar symptoms do occur which will subside by few days, if not one has to look for other carious teeth &/or gum recession, so visit your dentist who can better guide you after proper examination.

Please ensure that extraction wound is healed properly. Sensitivity can be due to side tooth use sensodyne tooth paste and chlorhexidine mouth wash.

Dear please check whether the extraction wound is healed or not properly. If not consult your dentist, some times unhealed extraction socket causes pain. Also the pain is may be due to receded gums and exposed roots as a result of aging. In these conditions use of desensitizing tooth pastes like sensodent kf will help to get rid of pain and sensitivity.
