Just had my top left molar pulled today at around 2:00.
Im so paranoid about eating and dislodging the blood clot.
i know I can’t eat anything hot and soft food. I’ve been trying to eat mr noodles but just drank the liquid so far.
ugh this sucks so bad!!!

i just had my wisdom teeth out a couple months ago, my fav meal during that time was kraft dinner!

I hope you’re feeling better soon. I can really sympathize…I had my wisdom teeth pulled in December and ended up with dry socket. It was so painful and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

I’m so scared of dry socket.
I do feel better just is really really sore and still some freezing in

Don’t worry you’ll be fine just don’t use straws and no smoking. Warm salt water rinses help…dental assistant here. 🙂

This is so weird!! I just had the same tooth (assuming it is not the wisdom tooth) pulled last week!
I agree with PP – I filled a bottle with a saltwater rinse and every 2 hours or so I just rinsed my mouth out. RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO POKE IT WITH YOUR TONGUE!!! lol
Hope it heals as fast for you as it did for me!

Papaya protein shakes! They’re super filling, yummy, and the cold can help ease the pain.
i was terrified of dry socket too but it didn’t happen to me!
feel better soon!

@ersa0501: no it wasn’t my wisdom.
i feel a lot better today. I can now use salt water and eat normally(I think?). It’s been 24 hours
can I drink hot coffee yet or no??

Ugh, tooth pulling is the worst! I had my wisdom teeth extracted and I don’t wish that on anyone, lol. I’m glad you’re feeling a little better today. I’m not sure about the hot coffee yet. Hope you heal up fast!

i feel much better. Still sticking to soft foods just to be safe and still doing salt water rinses. Tomorrow will be day 4 so I think I’m in the clear for dry socket.
i had all 4 impacted wisdom teeth out plus 2 others(to make room for braces) when I was like 19, and I never had any pain, no swelling, and I even smoked the next day. I didn’t even need to take pain killers. It was awesome! Lol
but all my friends who have had their wizzies out swelled like chipmunks and were in pain.
im usually a good healer though thank god.
