Here's a link to an article that discusses osteomyelitis, which is infection of the bone that is sometimes occurs as a postoperative complication of tooth extractions, especially lower 3rd molars.

We chose this article only because it contains some general terms and specifics that you can familiarize yourself with and then Google further about. We doubt that the outcome of the case itself correlates to your situation to any significant degree.

We provide some information about post-extraction infections on our website here. That page also has some links to articles you might follow. Good luck. Hopefully this will resolve quickly and uneventfully for you.
