I had a tooth pulled a couple weeks back. The "dentist" had to ask a different dentist to do the work. I'm not really sure why.
In my case it was a wisdom tooth that broke into little bits as they removed it. The had to cut my gum to get at the root.
It wasn't really painful but my cheek got bigger and harder. On the fourth day my partner took me to A&E as the advice from the dentist said to do out of hours.
The desk staff didn't know what to do, so she went to ask the charge nurse. She said the charge nurse said I should wait to see my dentist.
A couple hours later when my dentist opened, I went and asked about an emergency appointment. They asked me to just wait to be seen. The dentist seemed shocked I'd be turned away at A&E without antibiotics. He the prescribed be two different ones.
They took awhile to work but the did. I was fairly shocked that all this seemed to have little affect on my BGs. Control was fairly good. Not sure if the antibiotics were keeping it down or not.
Hopefully you'll not have that problem Dr as you have antibiotics to stop it getting infected.
Best wishes for a swift and painless op mate. Sorry it became expensive. Does private mean different surgeons, nurses etc or just the same ones paid more?
