Okay, guys we all know the trouble that I have been having with my tooth, right??

Yesterday, the Dr.DDS, cut the tooth into sections, trying to prevent exposing my sinus cavity, or at least all of it at once, I guess, and God Bless him, because there wasn't a dentist within 30 miles that would even attempt it.

My teeth roots are so long everyone else said go to an oral surgen, welp, I didn't have that kind of money, so this Dentist is willing to it it.

The last tooth he pulled on the other side went off without 1 problem, bled about 15 min., closed by the next day, not so lucky this time...

I bled for 2 hours straight, and when the swelling finally went down enough to look at it, OMG!!!

I have a huge hole with part bone fragmentand a clotted mixture, and the other side is wide open, and my husband exaggerated and said you could see so deep that he could see my skull, ver funny.

In closing... I do believe it effected my sinus cavity, because when I swallow, I can hear scruttching sounds in my nose, very gross, and when I have been drinking my coffee this morning, my coffee has been gurggling in the hole, very gross again.

The dentist is closed on Wed., so I am fixing to call him, because he had to have known, because he said if it hasn't closed by Thursday come back in so he can pack it, and I read all over the net about this last night, and they have a packing gel, but I am scared food or whatever, will get mixed in and when it closes it will cause infection, the net said that too.

Do any of you have any experience with this??

Thanks a ton in advance!!

Amy....lordy...sorry you are having such a time with the tooth...the Dentist after sawing it afterward's should of took an x-ray to make sure there were no bone fragments left then he should of put a few stitches to close that gaping hole..Keep that packed with gauze till you get to him...best of luck to you...I just had the same thing done where it had to be sawed because I had a crooked root and then they x-rayed for any partial bone fragments then sewed it up..today all is well...keep us posted on what is going on...dang...I feel for you...juju

Amy.... That sounded horrible just reading what you are going through! It might take a bit longer for the "hole" to close up- but I agree with juju that the dentist should have done a few stitches to help close it if it was going to be so huge.
I hope you can get in today!! Frowner Tell him it's an emergency d*mmit!

Keep us posted- love your little tooth guy- I certainly don't brush as much as I my mom kept telling me. Time to break out the the ol' brush and paste!!!
Take Care, Sandi


May you have the hindsight to know where you have been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far...

Okay, I didn't call, I just showed up there, and I told them since they are closed tomorrow, I needed it looked at today.

THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS AND SUPPORT!! Smiler

He said my roots were spread so wide apart that, it was just bone fragments and not tooth, that had been left behind, and he took a little wooden pick, and picked at it, and he said "I told you that I wouldn't be able to tell anything until Thursday",
so I said, "I was scared of being in extreme pain, and I wanted him to make sure it was healing right" Mad
.
He said it was just too soon to tell anything, and that more than likely I would have to come back on Thursday, and that it was a 50/50 chance that it would heal properly??? Eeker

Can regular Dentist put in stitches? I wish he would have, and my Dad has the same long roots, and he said that they always packed his with a healing gel, that even had novacaine for the pain.

Today was my last sick day, until Monday, then I will gain some more days, but it is so dammmmn depressing wasting all this time at work, and to even think I may only be 1/2 way through, if for some reason it doesn't heal right, GAWD!!

IT WILL BE SAD IF I END UP AT AN ORAL SURGEN AFTER ALL, and cost even more money that I don't have... Merry F..--ing Christmas to me, sorry, but I am starting to feel sorry for myself
, and I can't even veg out with comfort food, because the WOUNDED MOUTH, may get infected, ugh!!!

Okay, I'm sorry, I think I will just go take medicine and relax a bit, maybe there is a good movie on?? Confused

At least, I have House to look forward too.....

I'm so very sorry to hear about your tooth problems. I've been reading your posts and you seem to have had more than the lion's share of problems in that area. I know how painful it is. I've gone thru alot in the past, spent tons of money and ended up having them all pulled.
Maybe in the long run you've helped alot of future dentist trips for alot of people insofar as going directly to a surgeon. At the same time all of us would just naturally go to the dentist first and wait for a referral from him/her if it was "more than they could handle". Good luck to you. I hope this is all behind you soon so you CAN enjoy a Merry Christmas.

Hey my dearest Becky, it is really good to see ya around! I hope you are well, sweetie!!

First, I just wanted to say, after reading PB's last Mod thingie, post, I realized how absolutly selfish I have been.

Just wineing and crying over a hole in my mouth, which after my nap is now 3/4 way close, just a little gargle when I drink, so I apologize to everyone else who is in really bad shape, and can maybe barely get out of bed, or can't even right now!!

I want to be thankful that my knees/ back/ neck isn't bothing me,with all of this crazy weather, and I'm not in a wheelchair, and I am still able to work, when the hole closes, since I work with a lot of dust and dirt, and I would hate to breathe it in, and get a sinus infection right now.

So, I love all of you, and I wish everyone well, and sorry for so much complaining, but thanks for listening and offering support and advice!! It does mean so much to me, as my husband works all the time now, and my best friends have very busy lives right now, so I turned to my PW, peeps, so thanks!!!!!!!!!

Amy; This dental thing is major. Anytime anything remotely infectious is a threat is a good reason for concern and certainly warrents a quick intervention~ Regarding the gel, I used to irrigate my mouth with hydrogen peroxide before using any kind of topical or in your case "gel", just don't swallow it...I feel badly for you. Hope this gets resolved soon.
Hugs atcha,
Poppy.

Well I am soooooo glad that I saw your post. I worked for an endodontist for seven years so I know EXACTLYwhat you need to do. The dentist should have packed it or put a "bone graft" in the surgical site. You should definitely keep it packed with gauze for 72 hours. The other thing that will help you the most and I mean it will be to take 800mg of Ibuprofen every 8 hours. It helps with the inflamation and swelling and actually helps your bone and sinus to heal faster.

Now the bad thing. If you have really long roots (I'm guessing over 25mm?) then you REALLY should have gone to an oral surgeon (or an endodontist or at least a periodontist) you can have sites that go into the sinus that NEVER heal. The important thing is if you are having problems get to a specialist fast. We had a lady that had a sinus perforation over two weeks ago and we were able to seal the sinus and get the bone to regrow. Unfortunately after seeing dentistry for seven years I see how much general dentists really bungle things.

My hopes and prayers are with you! Did your doctor put you on an antibiotic? Alot of times they will even put you on a steroid like predneszone (sorry about the spelling!). It really helps to get the bone to regrow.

I finally got out of the dental industry. I couldn't handle any more sutures with food stuck in them anymore!!!!! Mad

So now I deal with lawyers! Wink

David&Rosie thanks!! CJHARV, wwwwwwooooowwwww,

My dentist didn't do any of that!! The hole has not closed, but I only have about 1/10 that has not clotted, and it looks like that bone in the middle of the hole now seems to be growing, and I will definatly swishing with peroxide/ listerine mix, it is starting to get puffy, so I hope it is not infection.

I was on Antibotics until last FRIDAY, and my extraction was TUESDAY, so I wish he would have kept me on them.


It just looks like this big oblong hole with black junk (I guess that is blood clot) a big purdy bone right in the middle that seems to be growing, and I don't see how this hole has a chance to go back together without any stitches or help of some kind.

Rosie I have 5 hydros left, but I should have a delivery Saturday, so if the dentist won't help with pain control maybe I can bum a couple pills at work, until then, but I will probably be back in his office tomorrow, or have him call me in something at least!!

I think I covered everything, I am trying to get coffee down, and I have taken Darvocett in the middle of the night when it awoke me in pain, and a couple of Hydro's this morn, and I think I need 2 more soon before the pain increases . I am a firm believer in beating the pain with pain killers instead of waiting on it to show up.

anyway, you all totally blew me away with all the kindness and advice, see you just never know, if you have a problem then put it to the board, and there just may be someone with knowledge in that area or field of work!!

Amy~ the invaluable advice cjharve gave you is great, another affirmation as to why I continue pw, it is an on-going learning process, I think it is a good idea to short-circuit the pain before it starts, sounds logical, will be nice when all this resolves! Take care sweetheart and talkatcha soon.
Hugs,
David

This lady at my work,said she had a similar deal with a tooth, but she said hers looked a little worse than mine, and she said it would probably take me about 2 months to fully heal, OMG!!

I am so hungry, for a big greezy salty hamburger, or something, and I don't much like burgers, I guess it is wanting what you don't need or something.

I can't wait to get home to rinse now, from ,my lunch Cappichinno, woo hoo!!

20 more minutes, and then my hour drive home, I can't wait to put the "jammers" on tonight!! It seems to be my favorite time of the day lately... Big Grin

Hi Amy
I sure hope you are feeling a little better today. It is true that sometimes the actual healing can take quite a long time. But, really, you shouldn't be in pain all that time. Yea, be sure to rinse whenever you can so nothing gets up in there. Should you be drinking hot liquids. I think all dentists are different but mine always told me to stay away from (especially for some reason) coffee.
Good luck. Hope each day gets better and better.
Becky 2

Check my other post Amy. And YES you should be on an antibiotic for AT LEAST THREE WEEKS TO A MONTH.

I hope you get feeling better. And you do not want anything going up that hole my dear. Chew on the other side and stick with things that are easy to chew.
