I went to have a sore tooth removed early last December, a back tooth.
Now what I wished I had known, and what I bet most of you don't know, that there is a danger that removing a back tooth, especially from those of us.....shall we say...getting on in years, that a fissure may be opened up between your moth and your sinus.
Sounds great doesn't it?
O the joys of growing old:D
Well that is what happened to me. It is not a common occurrence but it does happen.
When it does happen, reacting in time is most important.
Trouble is it is so rare that they don't warn about what to watch out for.
So if you, or a middle aged relative are getting a back tooth extracted look out for nose bleeding or any sinus problem.
I thought the nose bleed was from the punch I got during the dispute over the bill but it seems it was from aforementioned rare complication.
Now I need an operation to fix me face.
O HAPPY DAYS:)
Be warned!!
Dem coppers in the third policeman were right.
Yer teeth will bite you if ya don't watch dem.

I am on blood thinners and I am told that dental work can be particularly complicated. I keep my fingers crossed.

Apparently the mercury in amalgam fillings can be a factor in sinusitis as well.
My dentist refuses to admit any concerns regarding my mercury fillings I'm not convinced.

That "stuff" really shouldn't be put anywhere near the human body.. A few years ago I was suffering from a lot of fatigue over an extended period of time with no clinical or dietary reason, amalgam fillings came up in a conversation and I dd some research.. It led me to have my amalgam fillings removed and replaced (this is not a decision to take lightly due to the gases that are released during removal and should be perfomed by a specialist), I spent a long time preparing my body and added chelators to help with clean up afterwards. Fatigue long gone and one less poison to process

Hope yer feeling ok buddy Im sorry to hear.

Most dentists now using a white filling called a composite now. My dentist used it on all my teeth (I needed six fillings, had not been to a dentist in ten years because of my fear!) .

I would but he has a severe case of halitosis and I dread when he talks to me.

Yeh, I've been considering having them removed, apparently it's expensive and there're very few people that can perform the procedure here.

Going in 2morrow 2 get me head fixed.
Now one piece of advice I will dispense for free is this:

if you are going for an operation DO NOT look the dam thing up on you tube!!!

And DON'T and I really mean DON'T watch this if you are squeamish.
My case is not this bad (thank God)

So if I dont reply to the good Lord Sams undoubtedly witty retort for a while, well Sam, please understand:D

I'll keep it in mind for when I'm older. On a waiting list for the dental hospital at the moment to get my wisdom tooth removed. It's not that it's causing me pain but when I went in the summer about a chipped tooth the dentist noticed my wisdom pain was oddly shaped and would need to be removed before it caused me pain.

dentist told me mercury in fillings is safe, inclined to believe him.

Good luck with that eamo.

My magic tip for post op care is that a salty water mouth wash (with warm boiled water) is more effective and soothing than any of the recommended pharma mouthwashes - some of which contain sugar.

Neurofen works great, two and a glass of milk so they are easy on the stomach. Good luck eamo, thinking of ya buddy :)

Only messing Sam;)

When I was younger I used to smoke a joint before going to the dentist.

I wouldn't even know where to get the stuff now. It relaxed me and I imagined it didn't conflict with other medications.

Nowadays, I go to Budapest.

Huge dental industry there. A lot of the companies advertise over here. You get a flight, accommodation, treatment, after care for a couple of hundred quid. The other option was people were going up NI for all their dental work as it was 3/4 the price of here.

Hope things are better Eamo :)

I would avoid milk after mouth surgery because it is too encouraging for bacteria. Also, avoid chocolate :(

*always read directions on the pack*

Ahh, if done through a straw though?

Antibiotics can be hard on the stomach...
