Being diabetic for seven years, I had a lot of damage to my teeth. I went to a dentist, but he had to refer me to an oral surgeon cuz my teeth were broken. I had damage to 21 of them, but 4 are broken off at the gumline. I was all set to do it, and I felt a pain in my side. Ended up being my gullbladder. That was in February. With all those medical bills, and my teeth feeling better, I forgot about them. Last night I started getting pain. I have been taking Vicodin pills for the pain, but it is not working to well. My left bottom tooth fell out last year. I swallowed it while eating a sub. So I have a pocket in the gum, and right now it is probably infected. I am brushing with sensitivy toothpaste, and using mouthwash every 2 hours. I woke up at 3 a.m., and was bleeding from the mouth. The pain is in the jawline now.
I am hoping that I can get in today, get surgery set for maybe Thursday. I have no insurance so I hope it's under a couple thousand to fix. I just want the pain to go away right now, I have to wait a day , and not take my coumadin, so that I don't bleed as much. I might have to take some antibiotics to get rid of infection first. I don't think I am going to be able to work tonight
