Re: Wisdom Teeth Extraction
I had to get all four of my wisdom teeth taken out because the lower one on the left side was causing me pain. Since I am 16 years old, my dentist suggested I go ahead and get all four taken out at once because the others would probably bother me later in life and he said I would be fine. I got all four extracted on the 23rd of Dec and all the swelling has gone down except for the lump in my cheek. I returned to the dentist on the 29th and my dentist said it was just swelling and he stuffed the socket with cotton that has medicene on it which not to mention tasted horrible! The cotton did nothing but numb the area where the lump is but it's still there!!! I don't know what it is or why it got this way but I have another appointment for the 5th. He said I should come back and he'd re-stuff the hole with the cotton. I want an explanation for the lump and what I can be given for it to go away or if I need surgery or what but it seems like he's beating around the bush. I'm going to demand an explanation when I go back. But as far as the rest of my mouth it's doing fine.....On the right bottom side there is a sharp place I can feel with my tongue but I guess it's bone or something. Thanks for the reply. Seems like nobody else is replying to me.
