Dental advice

I’m having a tooth removed this evening. How painful is this likely to be @artfoley ?


#123

Ive had 2 back molars removed the process itself is painless you just feel pressure them a crunch and it’s out. Some teeth come straight out others can take up to 40 mins or more depending on the root. Be very careful of minding the empty socket afterwards do not rinse your mouth for a few hours so you allow the clot to develop in the wound, if the initial clot falls out you will get a dry socket and will be in a world of shit.


#124

Can I drink after it?


#125

Do they give you shots of vodka instead of an anaesthetic in Poland?


#126

No man anything that could knock the clot out id strongly advise against so careful if you smoke also.


#127

depends on which one, and how healthy it is


#128

I have a crown and something went wrong underneath it. theres only a small bit of tooth left. I reckon it’s going to be tricky.


#129

as long as theres something to get the pliers on you should be ok. no abscess or anything?


#130

No it’s dead


#131

You’ll need an extra big anaesthetic for that big square head


#132

shouldn’t be too much of a problem then, just make sure you stick with the cleaning regime or you will get dry socket, which is as painful as one of mac’s attempts at humour


#133

I suggest you listen to the dentist @balbec rather than looking for advice from the gobdaws here


#134

It’s done anyway. Got a few stitches as well.


#135

It wasn’t too bad after all.


#136

Stiches in your mouth? Ouch


#137

You cant bate good genes lads.

33 years and still no fillings, have all four wisdom teeth as well. Never an issue there.


#138

Did your baby teeth fall out during childbirth?


#139

You’re only 33?.Christ I had you down for at least 60.


#140

The irony


#141

Awful lot of lads here clearly with poor dental hygiene.
