Tooth Removal Session

DentalTools

After about two weeks of back and forth and having the time to get the work done I went over to Kuwait Medical Center in Old Salmiya over XCite Electronics. First day I got some XRays done and I needed to get on antibiotics before getting the tooth removed, she said it would require surgery to remove the tooth so she would prefer I’m on antibiotics.

The next day when I came in it still hurt and I was looking forward to having it removed. The tooth is the moler on the left side, lower deck, the one right next to the wisdom tooth. The Doctor leaned me back on the seat and told me that it would hurt a bit and explained what she had to do. When she put a hair net on my head (I am bald) that freaked me out a bit since it got a little more serious at the dentist then I’m used to. They also got into full gear and fully covered, and started with the big metal needle to inject the anesthesia into my and around the tooth. Three full needs and 5 minutes later I can not feel a thing and loved it.

She started with the surgery and I could feel the minor cutting around the tooth, and because the state it was in she had to break it up to pull it out. It came out with one big piece and two small pieces, and it required a screw driver looking tool to push it out, it didn’t come out gently. I had a feeling because of the hour and 30 minutes that my mouth remained open that I would be hurting the next day but I was wrong I was hurting 3 hours later and majorly incapacitated. I was given Pronstan for the pain and told I can take Tylenol with it every 4 hours, with my antibiotics on schedule.

I was hungry as hell when I left and my jaw was completely numb and started feeling that my hunger since I didn’t eat all day. She told me exactly what was going to happen and I would feel a good amount of pain the next day and I would also look like a chipmunk which I did. I’m just happy that it is over and I’m only eating soft foods at the moment but I’m looking forward to eating a lot of other foods when I can, I have been craving everything recently.

Tooth Abscess

Well the situation turned out to be a little worse then I expected. The infection reached pretty far and I have been taking strong dosages of the antibiotics, under Doc’s supervision of course, and the infection has gone back to the main area but damn this thing is persistent.

Now its the turn of the dentist to take a suction hose to my jaw and take it all out. What drove me nuts was the air pressure on the plane on the ride back, even when taking the pain killers it helps but only for so long. I have to say this pain killer is strong but it also causes nausea. Now that I have been on a 5 day course of antibiotics I do hope they can do something about it right away, and I don’t care what they have to do but I want to clean out the problem.

The original problem was due to a botched up route canal that was done in Kuwait years ago and this is the result of out it.
