We've both had that - had perfectly uneventful extractions with no ABs or anything and forgot about them - then months and even years later - had the bit of 'ivory' work itself out.  Pete's was fascinating - a complete ring!

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.

I had tenderness in the gum region for too long after my wisdom tooth removal and mentioned it at my next dentist's appointment some time after the operation.

She found a chip (bone or tooth?) was coming through the gum. Apparently it had been unnoticed at the time of the op and had slowly moved to the surface over time.

Hoping a couple things I've paid for lately have added some small amount. It seemed to have worked. One was a couple things from Amazon, another was a few days away via booking.com

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?

Thanks for all the good wishes!

To my knowledge the people I was referred to are the same if you are private or NHS just that things happen far quicker privately!

I was in about 30 minutes. Because of the sensitivity I had anaesthetic to either side and a bit of a wait for the bad tooth to become totally numb. I am glad I did not drive as I did not feel 100% after - probably from extra doses of anaesthetic and maybe from some of it and (a little) blood going down! Feel quite exhausted today so changed my p/t hours around. It didn't help that my BG was 8.7 at 7:30 last night and despite eating very little (on the other side) it was 21.4 at 10:30 calling for some extra neutral insulin. Quite stable today. I was also given some different antibiotics to start today Privately they were little more than the standard prescription charge (£8.80?).

It's a bit weird round here Alan - Pete needed an extraction a while ago and our dentist said he'd have to refer him to the hospital.  A letter came from a Dental surgery, one that's been there years and years but not partic near us so we don't 'know' them.  Pete went and they said they were doing work for the hospital.  Had a look, had the jabs, he was out again in 10 minutes.

No idea why ordinary dentists can't just do it like they always used to.

Ah - Pete's just wondered if normal dentists are not Dental Surgeons any more, only Doctors?
