I am glad this is over with!
All seemed to go well, according to what the oral surgeon told my husband. I was in La-La land from the IV anesthetic.
I did write down a few questions for my husband to ask beforehand:
1. Was there any sinus exposure? Answer: No
2. Did all the tooth come out, root tips included? Answer: Yes
3. Any complications or damage to other teeth? Answer: No
I also wanted to see the tooth and take it home, but he told my husband that it came out in pieces. I still wanted it! Oh well, 3 out of 4 is not bad.
Anything else I should be concerned about? I go back to see him in a week. I do have a few dissolvable stitches.
I feel pretty good 5 hours post op, only a little gnawing type pain, controlled with ibuprofen.
Up next: Getting my permanent crown on tooth #2 - I'm so glad the temp. one didn't come off today!
I also still have drilling old fillings and crown work on the two upper teeth in the back to get done.
I still also have 2 root canalled teeth that I don't like having and will be keeping an eye on that. I'll never have another one of those done!
Take care everyone - your teeth are the gateway to your body. I found that out the hard way! Gretchen
