One Tooth Abscess Was Enough for Me!

Waking up with a toothache in the middle of the night is no fun. First, you can’t get back to sleep because of the pain, and second, you probably will be missing work the next day. It depends on the pain. I had an abscess that was practically unbearable one time. I actually went to the hospital. The gave me intravenous antibiotics, but did not pull the tooth. I had to wait and see a dentist. I did not even have a dentist to go to. I found a dentist in Fairy Meadow that treated me very well. I was certainly glad to have that tooth out. They were very patient with me since an abscessed tooth is difficult to numb. However, the procedure that was used on me worked. It was out in a few seconds after the medication began to work.

I did not have any complications from it. I had to stay on antibiotics for a short time, but it healed up nicely. I appreciated their work, and I decided they should be my dentist from here on out. I admit that I had neglected regular visits. That is what got me in trouble in the first place. The dentist in Fairy Meadow explained it plainly to me how regular visits can make it so I never have to go through that pain again. Having that abscess was the worst pain I had ever experienced. It was non-stop and nothing would make it go away. I never want to have it again. I keep my regular dentist appointments now. I have an exam and cleaning twice per year. Having diabetes puts me at higher risk for tooth and gum diseases, so I make sure I keep my remaining teeth as healthy as possible. I want to avoid having tooth pain like that ever again.
