    Yesterday was a hell of a day. At about 2pm i was eating lunch and part of my tooth chipped off and must of hit a nerve. Needless to say the rest of the day i was trying to get the pain to go away, anyway i could. Woke up this morning and it doesnt hurt but im scared to eat. So i called the dentist to go get x-ray and maybe emergency extraction. My appointment is in one hour and im nervous as hell....FML:Cheers:

    Dana I've had emergency extraction before for a broken tooth. I was back to work the same day only slightly sore. Of course I drooled on the dogs that were on my table until the Novocain wore off ( but I just considered that payback)

    Well it's infected so they wouldn't pull it. Penicillin for a week then pulled next thursday.

    Northstar I gotta look at my schedule to see when I work. Maybe Friday morning or Saturday. U still have my number? Call me this evening if u want to talk.

    I won't advise on your particular situation Dana but most dentists want to drill a tooth that has the slightest little problem. Many times I just take Ibuprofen for a tooth ache and it goes away.

    If its broken and infected you need to get the sucker out! I had a filling in a back tooth since I was like 10 and I bit into a hamburger that unexpectedly had something hard in it ((PUKE)) and it just happened to hit the right spot to split the tooth all the way up!

    I had to get it pulled and then it took me a year to save up enough money to get the bridge so I didnt have a big gap. Luckily it was near the back so it wasnt to obvious.

    Dental work is EXPENSIVE even with insurance

    Maybe you can hit up a friend for something a little better than advil! LOL ;)

    Best of luck

    Well today is the day. Took a week of pennicilin. Last night i tried to eat and was a big mistake. I was in some major pain last night. Today the tooth goes bye bye. Matter fact my apt is in an hour n a half.....im hoping he will give me some perc's instead of vic's because vic's never helped me for any pain. The whole bone grafting doesnt sound pleasent either. Well wish me luck. Have a good day.
