Well this is my 4th abscess in about 8 months. One dentist did a scale and polish, 3 weeks later a piece snapped off my upper wisdom tooth so i went back the dentist and we had a new dentist there - he kindly put packing in it until he could fit me in to do it proper.
I waited the long for an appointment i got an abcess on it, so out it came and thought the pain was gone, but when the anasthetic wore off it was still there, it hadent clotted. it took a week to settle down, and before that one i had one at the bottom again. i waited months for small fillings down near the gum, so that got inffcted and caused an abccess, that too was very painful.
I had my wisdom out in march and i had some small fillings on the opposite side of my mouth and now again another abccess, it drives you round the bend. it's in my ears, i carnt move my jaw proper, its right down to my gland near my thyroid so I carnt swollow. i have to drink out a straw boiled water as tea is to sweet. went the dentist he gave antibiotics and done an xray, he told me he thinks its the filling he done but this bad pain is in the wisdom tooth. i carnt touch the tooth, he said the wisdom one is fine and no decay in it and that my throat has got nothing to do with the abccess
So when the tabs have worked its either a root filling or take it out. i rinsed it in whiskey and hot water, and tried strong mouth wash and salt water, and my daughter got me some stuff called clover oil from Boots and bonjela, the only one that numbs it a bit is the whiskey and bit of boiled water, im alredy on tylex painkillers cause i have arthritis and osporosis. it even affects my vision, get floaters in my eye, the eye clinc said it the teeth causing it, but i do have eyeritist in both eyes and toxoplasmotis in my left eye so i worry in case it had started again, it can make me blind if its not caught in time
I'm already rattling with all the tabs, and it gets my goat having to give them 15-50 to tell me its the wrong tooth. if you broke a bone you wouldnt have to pay to get it repaired or wait months for it to be looked at, especially when you're of ill health to start off with, all health treatment should be free and this goverment thats in now i hope it comes back on them and see if they like it. i'm going the docs to see if i can be refered to the hospital dentist unless i want the wrong tooth pulling out....:yikes:
