I would just keep taking the medication they give you and try to sleep as much as you can.  The pain gets better after a few days.  Feel better!

Just keep taking the meds and don’t do anything, as in stay stationary. The more you move around the more painful things will be. As far as food goes did they give you a list of things you could eat? There should be some great suggestions on that.

Oh and as for food, I only ate soft foods for the first few days.  Mashed potatoes and soup are good options that will fill you up more than jello.  You pretty much have to just swallow the food for now to get the nutrients.

Sorry your in pain, but I’m a little confused. If you can’t feel your mouth where is the pain coming from? 

I had some teeth extracted in HS and I couldn’t feel my mouth for the whole day and into the next morning therefore I couldn’t really eat but I also wasn’t in intense pain. Then the numbing started to go away and thats when I could feel pain, so I took the painkillers. My mom had me eat slimfast shakes so I wouldn’t take them on an empty stomach.

Buy (rather have someone else go to the store and buy) two to four bags of frozen peas. Transfer each to large freezer zip bags. Wrap them in tea towels. Wearing a hoodie, pull the hood up and set the towel wrapped peas inside. The hood will keep them against your face and in general you feel much better. Have the extra bags of peas waiting in the freezer.

Pancakes also work really well (surprisingly), cut them up into small pieces and let them go mushy.
