I arrived at the dentist at 8:00 but didn't get to see him until 8:30. He looked at the x-ray and said the tooth was dead. He started talking about doing a root canal, which I've had done before and wasn't a big deal, but I said no. Just pull the damn tooth. He nodded and numbed me up good. He started the procedure... and kept going and going. Apparently this was the most stubborn tooth he's ever dealt with but he got it out. The tech put gauze in the spot and had me bite down on it to start clotting but I was clotting sloooowly. I got two scripts: one an antibiotic and the other a painkiller. The scripts got called into the pharmacy at the store where my mom works so she brought those home with her as well as some Ensure shakes/drinks.
When I got home I had laid down in bed to read a bit of a book but I ended up sleeping for 3 hours. I've had no pain from the tooth spot so far but I do my jaw, which was already hurting before it got manhandled during the extraction.
