ok so i've been in so much pain for two weeks now, trying to get to see dentists and doctors & anyone who could help me, and i've finally been told i have infected wisdom teeth, they're also impacted causing pain in an incisor because of the pressure, and i have 'something going on with my nerves'. now i've also get an abcess developing on one of ther wisdom teeth - I JUST WANT THE PAIN TO STOP!!! i've been drinking so much water cos it's the only thing that helps but i'll probably overdose on the stuff soon (it is possible!!). I've barely been sleeping, although i've been pretty good the past 2 nights cos the doc prescribed me some strong painkillers, but i've only got enough left to see me through tonight. Anyone have any home remedies?!
I have to get all 4 wisdom teeth extracted, but i can't even get to the dentist to 'discuss my options' for 2 days. i'd much rather the general anaesthetic option, even though i hate the idea of an iv drip, and it's so expensive! It may be possible for them to take them out with a local anaesthetic - anyone experienced this? It's $1500 cheaper, but i don't know if it's worth it. they only take 2 out at a time and i'll have to hear bone-crunching sounds - pretty scary. I just want them gone, i want the pain to stop, but i know i'll probably be in pain afterwards as well, not looking forward to a mouth full of pus. Anyone have any advice please!
