Re: Gum burns after extraction
The infection started in the root of the eye tooth. It wasn't discovered until the tooth just broke off even with the gum. I didn't have any sinus problems, it just traveled up there from the root of the tooth.
They pulled the root of the tooth out, a nightmare, and packed it full of gauze. After about 8 hours i had to pull the gauze out because of the pressure building up causing alot of pain. I pulled about 3 feet of gauze out of there.
I'm sorry I don't remember the name of the antibiotic, this happened in 1987.
