Been there, done that... about 12 years ago. I was awake for the removal, but I really did not care, I got some really good stuff to help me not to care. But the only draw back was that when they stitched my socket closed, they stitched it to my cheek! So every time I tried to smile, I had this gigantic dimple in my cheek... LOL! Anyhow, glad you made it through!

I feel for you, get well soon.
I was thinking the same thing.

It's a good time for Ice Cream!

Or rinsing with peroxide? I did that by accident. They told me not to, but when they told me all the stuff NOT to do, I was well under the influence of these wonderful mind altering/pain surpressing drugs!!!!

Actually, bleeding is a good thing, as it means the gums are healing over. It's when you get a "dry socket" that things get ugly. I had that when my wisdom teeth came out. One of the sockets (big one on the lower jaw) had no blood going to it, so it left the bare nerve exposed. Talk about pain! I never had so much ice cream and whiskey in one weekend, and it still did me no good!

Anyway, if you do get such a thing, get some Oil of Cloves from the pharmacy. It'll numb the pain immediately!! (Also good for canker sores, but very temporary, and can actually inflame them).

Fast healing, my friend!

Nothing wrong with rinsing with the milder peroxide solutions -- just not the stuff used for bleaching. But don't swallow!!

Mind you, this has been many years ago, so I realize some things have changed since then. But they said that rinsing or gargling with peroxide would bubble out the clot/scab and prevent the healing. So when you say 'milder' are you talking about watered down peroxide? Just wondering after all these years that maybe that is what they told me and I was too high to tell the difference. Back then, they would give you halcyon before the extractions started.

Oh yes, halcyon - that's what I took!

They tell me to rinse with salt water....which is kinda gross tasting...but seems to do the job.
