Just checking in to say something I thought I'd never say in a million years: I should have gotten a root canal and crown on that tooth! At least it would be over with by now. I went back to the dentist today so he could pack that tooth socket with more gauze & medicine. It still hurts like a big dog. My whole lower-right jaw throbs.
And do you know what he has said both times I've gone back to have more medicine packed in there? Read this with an Asian accent:
"It look good! It not look bad. The tissue doing what it supposed to do right now. Dry socket mean the socket empty and no blood clot in there. It look good! You come back Saturday. We will be here, and I will put more medicine in there for you. But it look good!"
I hate him.
