it didn't break, it was very loose. As I said it had very little root to begin with. It came in way too late, and way too far in the back. By the time it popped out it was much higher than the rest of my teeth. The only problem I've had it the tooth that was in front is a little hot cold sensitive on the back. I've had that problem when I had my top molar removed. It stopped after a couple of weeks, its only been 8 days. My socket is growing in rapidly.
why would I have a jaw infection report. There is no infection. I've had teeth taken out, I know how to deal with a socket. It's healing up nicely, the socket has sealed and new gum is already growing.
I'm waiting for Joey's jaw infection report
Years ago I had a festering wound on my jawline and the anti-bacterial lotions the doctor subscribed did nothing. So after a few weeks of leaking pus i grabbed a syringe filled it with pure alcohol, stuck it in the scab and emptied the contents in the wound.
Stopped the infection straight away and the wound healed up a week or so later.
Sometimes doctors are full of it!
Is KM really a dentist? Even if he really is he's wrong to think I'll get an infection. Not everyone needs medication for everything.
If you have a root remnant it will get infected sooner or later, so it should be removed.
sorry that is not true at all.
Well I should have eluded. It's true that if it is only a very small remnant which is vital, you can leave it. If it is avital or luxated it should be removed. So an important question is: why did it break? Larger than 3 mm should be removed anyway.
Oh ok sounds like you'll be fine.
