Ugh, My Gum Hurts

Hey there, everyone. I decided to try and squeeze a post in before I call it a night, and I think the title is pretty gum hurts. :(

I had a dentist appointment today; to have my other top wisdom tooth pulled out and my teeth cleaned. Oh but first I had to walk up-hill in the heat to get there. Fun stuff lol. We also had a power outage for about two hours this morning, so it got hot in my house.

When I got there, they were with another patient and it took longer than they expected, so I was probably waiting for about an hour. I just used to the time to rest and cool off though.

Once I was called back, he numbed my mouth with the needles, which actually hurt. :( And then he cleaned my teeth while we waited for it to kick in. Once he was finished and my mouth was numbed, he pulled the wisdom tooth. It really didn't take long to remove it.

The rest of the day was business as usual - writing (no babysitting) and watching WWE Raw. I have been following directions, but my gum is still sore. I think I am going to take something for the pain (Tylenol, he said it was okay) before I hit the hay.

My next appointment isn't for another few weeks, in which I will have my bottom wisdom tooth surgically removed. I've been through it before, with my other bottom wisdom tooth. Once that's over, I will have had all my wisdom teeth removed. I cannot say I am sorry to see them go, as I never had trouble with my teeth until they came in.

But yeah, I just wanna finish Raw and this last assignment, make another blogging post elsewhere and then hit the hay. I hope you all have had a more productive -and less painful- day than I have. Take care, everyone.

Hope you are fine by now. It is really hard when a tooth aches

Don't wait to take the Tylenol. The key to pain management is to stay ahead of the pain. I speak from years of experience in this area. Also, since you have so recently visited the dentist, may I ask you to take a poll on the subject (it's sort of on the subject of dentists, or waiting around at the dentist's office).

Thanks, I think you will enjoy the poll. emoticon :smile:

I hope you're feeling less pain today! I wasn't sore or sick or anything yesterday, but I had phone calls and family stuff going on. So I didn't end up getting much done, either. Maybe today will be better....

@cheri DWDavisRSL and Ruby3881 - Thanks, everyone. It doesn't hurt anymore, and I'm assuming that it's healing okay. :)
