My tooth extraction went wrong
The root broke off as it was being extracted.My dentist told me she would have to cut my gums, so it flaps open and then grind my jaw bone to get at the remaining root.There is also the risk of nerve damage and I would have this tingling in my lip for life.Hearing this kind of freaked me so I started firing questions at her.Dont know what happened but she wants the hospital to do it now, so I will be probably waiting months knowing the nhs to get the remaining root out.Is grinding the jaw bone a big deal?

Re: My tooth extraction went wrong
I had a wisdom tooth extracted a few years ago. Because it was so deeply rooted, part of it stayed in my jaw. But, within a few weeks it worked itself to the surface of the gum, and I ended up spitting it out.

My wife had her jaw broke during a tooth extracting, so consider yourself lucky. Her lower lip is still numb and its been 3 years now.

I don't know, FALLENMONK, but if it were me, I think I'd find a way to KILL any infection around the root and let the whole thing heal over. But that's just me and how I do things. :)

Your dentist should have known by the X-rays that breaking off the root was a real possibility and taken great care to dig it out while extracting the tooth. It would have happened to me but for a really skilled dentist. Get a second opinion.

OUCH!!!! You poor thing :(
Once in the middle of an extraction my dentist could not get my mouth to numb (after 5 shots), while I was bleeding and in serious pain, he said to me: "Do you want me to stop now and send you to an oral surgan"

The medical and dental "professions" are havens for medical quackery.
I had a loose toothe that the dentist I saw was sure would have to come out.
She was amazed that after I tried oil pulling that it had tightened up in the gum. Etc.
Gave her the internet links but doubt she checked it out.
These people are just slammed through some corporate factory and know verty little apart from how to hack people open and prescribe (corporate) drugs.
I have a suspicion that if you leave it the tooth fragment will reabsorb into the bone.
Coould be wrong, but it's worth checking out.

You guys don't speak too well of female dentist.

I've been to many dentist who did unnessesary work. Bastards.

Re: My tooth extraction went wrong
I have had several teeth pulled. They usually break apart during the procedure, and the dentist drills out the portion below the gum line. Never had to have the gum opened up. A simple extraction takes about 10 minutes. Mine usually take about 25 minutes with the drilling. I use an endodontist, which requires a referral from a general practice dentist.

Can the oral surgeon not cut a window into the gum and then root canal the remaining root? Grinding the jaw bone down sounds pretty radical to me.

I know my husband just had the window done and it worked out great for him. Maybe get a second opinion. Good luck.

That happened to me during a deep filling, which weakened the crown that broke off, resulting in the tooth having to be pulled. It was the skill of the dentist that was able to pull the tooth root and all.

It's a sorry time to have a dentist tell you he will refer you to an oral surgeon when he's already half way through. Yeah, I can sympathize with you, cosmic yo yo, and the OP.

My dad told me to stay out of the dentist's chair and I would have my teeth longer. He was sooooo right!

Re: My tooth extraction went wrong
...and that is why I don't like female dentists (no offense).

I think we (women) do not have the same strength in our hands than men and when it is about applying force but gentleness at the same time, like moving a tooth, we can't do it right.


The only times (twice) that I have been hurt in the dentist, one during an extraction (the tool ended up cutting part of my lip in the inside) and the other in an endodoncy.

Never again. Men have a better grip with those tools and don't have to use the rest of their body so much.

Maybe you should get a second opinion and this time, I suggest you guy with a guy.

Re: My tooth extraction went wrong
i had 22 teeth pulled all at one time 6 top back and 18 full bottom. 14 shots and no gas. my dentist not only took out the teeth but parts of the jaw bone were stuck to a few teeth as well. i now have 2 collapsed sockets and a saw-blade like spot on upper right spot that's now cutting through my very thin gum skin. 2 facial neuropathies in constant pain. heres my q, is that normal for bone to stick to teeth when pulled?

Why are we the only animals on the planet that need dentists. I'm sure they do more harm than good.

Re: My tooth extraction went wrong
A dental technician told me it is possible to gently rock the tooth in the days before the extraction in order to partially loosen it. Has anyone tried that?
