| | Re: Tooth #18 needs to be pulled
Hi there. I just had #19 pulled. We knew it was cracked, but the endodontist couldn't perform a root canal, because the crack was too deep.
I have TMJ also, my teeth are small. I have been grinding my teeth since 1984. I wear a mouthguard, but I must also grind during the day.
My gum pain is unbearable! Now, two of my front teeth hurt like H***! My oral surgeon pulled the tooth 1-30-08, and in the next 2 months, I will get the dental implant put in.
If I take the Tylenol with codeine, I just feel like I'm going to be sick.
I have never had teeth problems. Maybe 3 cavities, that's it. I did break a tooth (upper right, second from back, sorry, don't know the number), and have to put the crown on it. Had to have the gum receeded, because there was too much gum tissue.
I also am bipolar, so my panic attacks have been way up.
Good luck. Have someone drive you to your tooth extraction, take you home, and be with you all day. I was in agony!
