Ouch doesn’t sound good.  I didn’t have a lot of pain eating after getting my wisdom teeth out.  I’m thinking maybe that has to do with the root canal being unfinished.  Feel better!

Yeah I had mine out when I was 17 b/c they were impacted and were ruining my perfect braces used smile.  My smile has deteriorated since then.  I hope you feel better!  I took me a good week and a half to eat normally.

If it makes you feel better, I had a cracked tooth fixed this week and the temporary crown hurts like hell!  I’m sorry!  I hate the dentist.

I 2nd you on the getting the wisdom teeth out early thing! By the time I had mine out, the nerve that runs along the jaw was caught on my wisdom tooth and I could not open my mouth. I was basically told I had to be sedated because they would just open my mouth for me and no amount of novacaine would ease the pain it would cause. Yikes!

The percocet did not do much for me except make me feel high and ended up getting vicoden instead. It’s okay to have a pity party. Dental pain is the worst! And I’ve been through labor…

I’m in my third year of dental school and am currently going through adult braces, so I feel your dental pain :(.  The temporary should be fine as long as you don’t eat anything too hard/sticky (even then, you might be OK).  They use a compound called Zinc Oxide Eugenol for temps usually and it is very strong and will hold up for awhile (though ideally only two weeks).  But very important note: once your dentist finishes your root canal make sure you schedule an appointment to get a crown put on that tooth if it is in the back or there is a great chance the tooth will fracture and all that you’ve invested in it will be in vain.

Hope I helped a little…eat apple sauce and mashed potatoes for a few days at least and try to avoid strenuous activities like running.  You don’t want a dry socket…those are horrible!

A dry socket is when the blood clot that forms in the empty space where the tooth used to be dissolves.  This can happen if you suck through a straw, smoke, exercise strenuously, etc. in the first few days after an extraction.  They are pretty painful.  If you can get one, call your dentist/oral surgeon and they can do something to help the clot form again.

Dental pain is far worse than baby pain, seriously.  My temporary crown is like a jenky ill fitting cap over the affected tooth.  They put in the composite and then cement this stupid thing over the top.  They did take impressions for the real deal which will be ready next week… but I’m worried because she said she drilled down to the root (just barely) and I may need a root canal for it.  I won’t be thrilled to get a root canal for a tooth that was asymptomatic!
