“Ain’t that a kick in the head”. Well the jaw to be precise. Or, at least, that’s what it feels like.
Jesus-H-Christ on a bike. The post extraction pain is almost as bad as the pain that forced me to go to the dentists in the first place. There’s a big gappy hole in the gum where the tooth used to be.
Now. He did have to spend a lot of time and a lot of force to get the tooth out. The root was deep and, apparently, I have “dense jaws”??? So it’s no surprise that I would have some discomfort/pain.
BUT the big gappy hole has a neighbouring tooth right beside it, and I’m sure that now has an exposed nerve!
I’m eating painkillers with the same gusto that a fatty east Smarties.
The various bits I’ve read on the interweb seem to imply that the pain stage can last up to three weeks!? Feck that. No improvement by Thursday and I’m going back.
