Ill share a bit of my personal experience: My teeth started going bad about 10 years ago, and had em removed 1 here and there up till this last Wednesday, then the last 24 came out. The final straw for me was back in November I was playing World of Warcraft, and I was eating sun-chips, and my left5 front tooth just snapped. I am not ashamed to admit I cried for 15 minutes, it didn't hurt at all, But it upset me so I cried. Well I had known for a while that they needed to come out, Id been sick on and off for a long time, and the tooth aches were pretty hard core. So here I sit 6am Ive probably slept 6 hours since they were pulled, It hurts, but not bad, I have a lot of swelling so once that goes down Ill probably feel a ton better, really though I do feel better than the first day which is the weirdest part of the story. First day: I got really dehydrated after the extractions and the the numbness caused me not to be able to swallow scared the heck out of me, then the Novocaine wore off and I hadn't been able to take anything for the pain, which I might add no twilight sleep at the dentist, and no Nitrous, just 20 some odd pokes of Novocaine.

Oh one last sorry about the scattered nature of the post. Thinking is not easy at the moment! And one last thank you to all those out there that have shared their stories, it does help to read them.

Sore in IL.

Wow just read my own post, was I that out of it? Guess so, cant really eat, and that's the part that sucks the worst right now, the thought of food makes me ill, and the funny part is I'm starving lol following the post op directions they gave me, I cleaned my dentures this morning well about 10 minutes ago , most of my pain is gone without em in, Trying to bring myself to putting em back in, Ive had em out 2 other times, cause they tasted so gross I cleaned up and put em back in.

Morning three, Dentist had me remove the dentures till Tuesday, they are rubbing pretty bad, no big deal, sleeping is still a challenge, have to sleep in a chair sitting up or my mouth starts hurting pretty bad, still gargling with salt water. Its getting better. Able to eat a bit now :)
