I think I have what they call "a dry socket" from my extraction last Tuesday, the 13th...I followed their instructions to the letter...(although they gave them verbally and did not give me a hand out)...
I had my teeth cleaned two days later...(had to reschedule the cleaning from Tuesday when I had the tooth pulled, due to appointments to show our house, so I had to find a dog sitter for Izzy...)
My mouth was sore at the injection site, but instead of getting better, the pain has spread down closer to my extraction site. Somewhere, some how, I have lost my "blood clot", hence, the "dry socket".
I don't want to go back to that quack. He charges for every little thing. No doubt he will charge for "an emergency treatment". The LAST THING I want, is for him to give me another injection!!! I have never had a more uncomfortable experience with an injection!!! He shocked my tongue twice and vibrated his hand while injecting me, like he was jack hammering! I thought he was nervous or having a palsy twitch or something. GAWD!!! It was wierd!
I am going to try light rinsing with salt water... Man!!, I do NOT WANT to go back to this numb-skull!!!
