I’m currently recovering from a recent almost-emergency tooth extraction. We were in New York two weeks ago and my lower left molar started hurting. Apparently, there was a vertical crack in my tooth and my dentist says that the my filling from my previous dental work (and previous dentist) was a little too big. This lower left molar can no longer be saved. Since we have a Vegas vacation planned for next week, I wanted to get the tooth extracted as soon as possible so I could be somewhat “healed” for the vacation.
Due to the resting and recovering, I have not been able to blog as consistently this week. I just wanted to give a little update for those who might be wondering. I would also share some insights on dental work and recovery from oral surgery in the near future. I hope that I get to help anyone with questions regarding this.
So for now, I’m just at home taking antibiotics and not eating super-solid foods; which is very depressing! Tooth extraction – something to dread but if needed, don’t put it off! Save yourself from more pain, folks!
Have you had any dental work lately? Did it hurt? Do you have a very memorable dental experience? Leave me a comment below!
