It doesn't taste as bad if you don't let it hit the front of your tongue any more than possible. And don't accidentally swallow it!

yup same here. my moma always told me that salt water cleaned the blood and gunk out of the socket.

Salt also speeds healing.

It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.

I had to have one of mine done by an oral surgeon, because the nerve was wrapping around the root. He gave me Valium through an IV, then put me completely under, and gave me some serious painkillers for later. I was laughing about something with the nurse when I went under and when I woke up, according to DH, I was still laughing. He still remembers that - he and the surgeon were trying to get me into the car and I was laughing and laughing ...

I remember eating a lot of spaghetti and fish for a while.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I had my first one done with just novacaine, it wasn't really a big deal, Painkillers helped.
So, when the 2nd one HAD to come out, I thought, so what.
Well I was pregnant. No painkillers. After the novacaine wore off I had Tylenol.
Not the best painkiller.
My last 2 still need to come out. Good thing I'm done having kids!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

My Grandson (20 Feb 10th) had two taken out two weeks ago...he milked it all he could...LOL
My son Kevin went in today for a consolation on removing his..decayed, absessed and growing sideways. The Dr. said "lets do it now. He did and Kevin drove himself home and then called me to tell me it was out. Not smoking (HA!) will bother him. He will smoke anyway.

I had two or three??? removed when I was a teenager...Maybe thats my problem..all the wisdom was removed...Hmmm
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Tell him to go hang out with friends who smoke and just get it 2nd hand--less chance of dry socket! (Just kidding, mostly--it would still be better than smoking and ending up with dry sockets).
