    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Zev Kaufman, DDS replied to Thumperr's response:
    Dear Thumperr:

    By now, the pain should have subsided. This sound normal and within normal limits. It is not uncommon for teeth next to a surgical area to hurt for a day or two.

    It is most important to keep excellent oral hygiene and to go back to your dentist for a two week post op follow up visit.

    Think on how you want to get these teeth replaced in the near future.

    Best of luck,
    Dr. Zev Kaufman
