My oldest daughter is getting her teeth extracted tomorrow morning at 9am. The office has no equipment to knock her out. They will numb her. All of her uppers and half of the bottom teeth have to go. They are supposed to give her immediate dentures. Tomorrow is going to be a rough day. :( Quoting: tiger1
How is your daughter doing? I hope everything went well.
This was really horrible. I swear they stuck her at least 50 times, I lost count after 15. Some of the teeth broke as the dentist was extracting them, and he had to drill them out. She got immediate dentures, as they took the impressions 2 weeks ago. She has to leave them in until she goes back to the dentist next tuesday.
I took her home from the dentist, and dropped off the prescription at Walmart. They told me they would be ready in less than an hour. So, 45 minutes after I get her home, I go back to Walmart to pick up her meds. When the numbing stuff wore off, I was at Walmart getting her prescriptions for the antibiotic and the pain killer. She called me while I was in line to pay. She was screaming and crying on the phone, telling me to hurry. The pain she is in is off the scale. I gave her a pain pill as soon as I walked in the door. It had no effect, so we gave her another one. She is only supposed to take one every 4 hours, but they wear off after less than 2 hours. After the pain pills finally kicked in, she decided to lay down and try to sleep. She had her head slightly elevated, but not enough. She bled all over the bed and herself. I am changing the gauze pads for her mouth very frequently, and it seems that the bleeding has finally subsided now.
She is in bed right now, 1 room away from me, crying and moaning in pain. She still has another hour before I can give her another pain pill. Her face is very swollen, but I did expect that. She had all of her upper teeth removed, and all the molars and the canines on the bottom.
Both of her sisters came by to check on her this afternoon. They tried to comfort her the best they could. This has not been an easy day. :(
