Finally getting rid of this tooth

May 20th, 2008 at 05:05 pm

Well I went to the oral surgeon and he will extract and place some packing in for the implant on Friday, today was a no charge thank goodness. I must say since I have been icing this tooth and started a different antibiotic I am feeling much better; so I am going to try and go in tomorrow, hopefully I will as good as I am feeling now. It is going to cost me $410 so I went ahead and paid it that way Friday I am in and out
Thank goodness for my EF because Murphy has been bugging me lately

    I hope you feel better! Remember not to eat anything spicy or drink from a straw to avoid post-op pain.

    Hey, just discovered your blog and I feel your pain! I went to the dentist with a toothache today and he wanted to extract it right away. This is the first time I've been to his office though, so I am trying anti-biotics/pain meds for now. What did they say they will do after? Dental implant? Bridge? They told me an implant would likely be $3000 and insurance probably wouldn't cover any. =/

    I'm glad you are finally going to get this taken care of for good, Amber. Just like the previous poster said, no drinking thru a straw, no spitting, and no smoking to avoid dry socket - very painful! Feel better and take care of yourself.

    Thanks for the reminder about the straw I totally forgot all about that and was think I should buy some to drink out of since I won't be able to eat. Jan thanks for the positive feedback on the oral surgeon, I was a little nervous. But thank goodness it will finally be taken care of
