I had ten upper teeth pulled about 2 and a half months ago and am waiting for healing so I can get my denture. When I had mine pulled the worst part was the numbing shot. Which only hurts for a second or two..I had zero pain afterwards and did not need pain meds. I had ten teeth pulled. I can't even believe I had no pain....I guess it depends on how good the dentist is...
I had mine done on Monday at 8 AM, today is Thursday and it is 8:02...I would never, never do this again. It is the most painful thing that I've ever gone through and I have had three children, four different surgeries and other teeth removed. I
had six teeth extracted. (top) My gums are all full of stitches. I am still all swelled up. Still bleeding and still hurting, sometimes throbbing pain..especially where the eye tooth was.
If you must do it, just do without teeth for three months and go from there. It's bad enough with the after extraction w/out taking them in and out...that really causes the pain.....hate to write this, but this is what I'm going through.
As you can see, I am very upset. My Dentist is leary about too much pain meds and won't give me what I really need....bad for the liver. If I could take them the way I feel I need to, it wouldn't be so bad. Right now I am trying to get up the nerve to put them back in, I just took some Ibuprofen and one Hydrocodone APAP...hopefully, it will allow me to get the plate back in.....yesterday, it was a mess tears running down my swelled up cheeks, blood in the sink..... Hope that by the time you read this, you would have had it done and you are ok. Who knows, maybe I'm having a bad reaction...I did go back once already do to excess blood and pain, he did something to th denture and it made it somewhat better. To my dentist, this is all normal and he keeps on saying that I'll be over the worse anytime now....I'm still waiting. Please, write back on the site...I want to know how/what you have decided. Cc
The patient should ask for an anesthetic and not feel a thing. Maybe a little tenderness after the procedure but nothing too serious.
I don't really know. I have to get all my teeth pulled in two days. I hope its not to painful.
I had 7 teeth on the top pulled out today and have the denture in.
And its killing me.....I don't think I could eat enough pain pills to
make the pain go away right now....I hope tomarrow is better
but I have a feeling its not going to be....but I do know its going to
be a long night
