dentist done

so I ended up deciding to get the tooth pulled after all, 100 bucks, wow... the price difference is ridiculous.

What an unpleasant thing.. had to get 2 shots to the gums, and just sit there for 10 mins while it goes numb, such an unpleasant gross feeling, whole face going completely numb.

then the twisting and bending the tooth out, drilling.. yeah... unpleasant.

then having to bite down on gauze all day long afterwards, couldn't talk, mouth full of blood, man seriously who knows how much blood I swallowed today.

couldn't eat, and can't eat any solid foods for 3 days.

says not to talk much (no problem there *foreveralone.jpg*)

so it's nice to have that behind me, I hope it heals fine and all that. I really don't look forward to the no solid food thing...

  2. Austin,
    The one thing you don't want EVER is a dry socket. When they pulled your tooth all they did was fold the skin over the nerve. If that nerve gets exposed its called a Dry Socket and its one of the worst pains you can have. I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth out last year and got a Dry Socket 2 times.

    So, I would say don't eat anything but soups for a week. Don't drink out of a straw that sucking action will open that nerve right up. IDK if you smoke, but don't for a week or 2.

    Good Luck,
    Kyle

  3. ummm yeah we probably shoulda warned you about what you go though afterwards, but its kinda worth it because of the price difference.

    but anyway for the next week or so sip plenty of liquids so the hole doesn't dry up and make sure you don't accidentally remove the blood clot where you got your tooth pulled or you will be in for a world of hurt like no other, trust me on this one.

    here are some more tips on how to help the healing process.
    Bite gently on the gauze pad periodically, and change pads as they become soaked with blood. Call your dentist or oral surgeon if you still have bleeding 24 hours after your surgery.
    While your mouth is numb, be careful not to bite the inside of your cheek or lip, or your tongue.
    Do not lie flat. This may prolong bleeding. Prop up your head with pillows.
    Try using an ice pack on the outside of your cheek for the first 24 hours. You can use moist heat-such as a washcloth soaked in warm water and wrung out-for the following 2 or 3 days.
    Relax after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding.
    Eat soft foods, such as gelatin, pudding, or a thin soup. Gradually add solid foods to your diet as healing progresses.
    Do not use a straw for the first few days. Sucking on a straw can loosen the blood clot and delay healing.
    After the first day, gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day to reduce swelling and relieve pain.
    Do not smoke for at least 24 hours after your surgery. The sucking motion can loosen the clot and delay healing. In addition, smoking decreases the blood supply and can bring germs and contaminants to the surgery area.
    Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue or touching it with your fingers.
    Continue to brush your teeth and tongue carefully.
    Your dentist will remove the stitches after a few days, if needed.

  7. Try to get your hands on some peach frozen yogurt, I had my tooth pulled a year ago and it helped the healing and the lack of food TREMENDOUSLY. And since it was cold it didn't hurt to swallow. Good luck with your tooth Austin. God bless.

  10. Wanna know a secret? That "no solid food" thing can be bypassed as long as the food you're consuming doesn't need to be chewed. I perfected the art of swallowing Mac'n'cheese whole without chewing when I had my wisdom teeth out.

  21. Well, don't have any advice that hasn't been said already. Don't know how cold it is over there, but, yeah, at least there's ice cream.

    Feel better soon.

  22. Aw, was it impacted? D; they had to bend and twist my last wisdom tooth because it was impacted, I literally thought they were going to break my effin' jaw.

  23. Know just how you feel, Austin. I got three teeth pulled, but at least I was sedated for it.

    The next few days will be painful, but painkillers and soup will be your best friend. Don't forget to rinse every night with water, very gently, don't slosh, to get any debris out of the socket.

  24. Aw, I was hoping for the root canal.

    Peanut butter isn't that solid, although it's glue-y...

    Forever Alone made me lol, then get kinda sad. Then it was mildly funny again.
