On the Friday for other half of tooth removed out of gum, came home and from Tuesday right through to my appointment I suffered serve pain, no sleep etc, my first time at dentist for 10+ year so thought this was routine, I go today put through all the needles etc and they say they can't remove it, need hospital treatment and put me on metronidazole, the hole reason I put myself through pain is don't want hospital treatment as I have a bad fear of getting put to sleep, I'm 34 years old and don't understand how they said they cud remove them, make appointment to only AV half of one tooth removed, excrusating pain for days go bk to appointment thinking it will be over with then hear I they carnt and put me medication with root still in my gum???
I know it is not easy but even the Metronidazole should help with the pain and infection,But be thankful that you have a good enough dentist to notice something before they decide to just go ahead with it. Knowing it is more a surgical procedure that is not able to be done in the office.There are a lot of things that don't show up on x_rays and the dentist has to get into it to find out that there is a problem that can;t be handled in a normal dental office but sadly it can't be spotted until they can tell what is really going on. I am so sorry you have had to go through all of this and then still have to go to the hospital to have it done.Would not be a very happy camper myself but as I said I have had things done in a office because some dentist tried and then gotten further into it and find out they can't do it. hope you can get in and get it done fast.Best of luck it well all work out okay.
