    I had a root canal operation yesterday. It bloody took an hour and a half, and I have to go back again soon! ;_;

    Is it normal to still feel crappy 5 days after having the buggers out? I feel like a complete space head at the moment and my gums are still really swollen. Saying that they had to cut open my bottom gums to get the bottom teeth out so i guess it may take a while!

    Had a wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it taken out three weeks ago but now the swelling is (finally) going down, I've got two very sharp bits digging out of my gum. They're not quite enough to erupt through the gum, but one in particular is very close (I can feel it if I dig my nail into the gum). Both are around the edge of the extraction. They're not loose - they don't move when pushed.

    If anyone has had wisdom teeth out on here, did you experience anything similar? And if so did they round off naturally, or did you have to have something done.

    The one furthest to the back is scraping across my cheek and causing that to swell up.

    I've had two (of the horrible little fuckers) removed - never had the symptoms you're describing. I'd give your dentist a call and tell him it doesn't feel right. On a brighter note, it might just be that the gum and jawbone might still be a little sensitive - a kind of phantom sensation, maybe?

    Good luck. Wisdom teeth suck balls.

    Definitely sharp. When I put my finger on it, it's about as sharp as the tip of a nail (as in a hammer and nail, not a finger nail). It's very sharp. It's also quite a bit lump.

    Ouch. Get yourself to a dentist I reckon. When I had mine pulled there was nothing left of the tooth at all - yours don't sound right :)

    Gonna phone them tomorrow. A quick google suggests that the socket may have broken, and that shards of bone are protruding. Self-diagnosis is always dangerous, but it does look and feel exactly like they have described. Happy days.

    I had no pain at all when mine came through - I didn't even notice they were there until months later! However, apparently my mouth is too small for all my teeth, so when they came through they put pressure on my other teeth and two of my molars basically cracked under the pressure (so boo! for wisdom teeth).
    Whenever I have toothache though, I find that adding some whiskey to a warm lemsip and swilling it around my mouth helps a great deal. So does clove oil, but that shit tastes nasty.

    Exactly what happend to me darkmorgado. The tooth next to it cracked under pressure, and I had to have both teeth removed. Got to have the other wisdom tooth out on the other side of my face in a few weeks as well. They wouldn't do both at the same time! :o(

    @kentmonkey

    I can't even get a dentist where I live now :-(. Even if I could, I doubt I would be able to afford the prices.

    I wish dentistry was fully covered under the NHS.

    It was a piece of jaw bone that had broken off. About 1cm long, very thin, and very sharp. Had to cut the gum open to get it out, but it's all done now. \o/

    Had the one on the other side done two weeks ago (it couldn't be removed as my sinus has collapsed above the tooth, and the tooth next to it had very very slight decay, so they drilled the tooth down next to it and filled it so that the wisdom tooth could grow through properly) but they I've gone from having no pain whatsoever to excruciating pain whenever I eat anything hot or cold. This isn't just sensitive teeth pain, this is FUCKING HELL pain. Considering the jaw bone story above didn't really hurt that much, I think you can probably gather quite how much this is therefore hurting me.

    I've gone back to see him and he thinks it made be root canal and I've got to go back next week (this coming week - probably Wed/Thurs) to be investigated further as the antibiotics he has put me on just to rule out infection haven't worked.

    Has anyone else had complications after a filling before? I'm wondering whether it just needs to be redone, rather than root canal treatment, as the decay barely showed up on the x-ray and I can't understand why I'm now in such tremondous pain. Eating is suddenly a real chore.

    I've never had pain like it. And I've torn three knee ligaments in one go. So I know what pain feels like.

    I'm getting all 4 out in a couple of weeks (and some others) - getting knocked out because I think I'd cry like a girl if I was awake :)

    Hi Kentmonkey. I work in the field of dentistry and that sounds like a bit of bone that you can feel there. Go see the dentist and if it is bone it can be smoothed off quite easily. Its a common procedure and would normally be done under a local anaesthetic.

    Hi Fonzie.

    Although a few months late ;op it was indeed a bit of bone. I ended up having two small ops done to have the bone removed and smoothed down.

    Any idea on my most recent post? The one about the excrutiating pain (I feel like putting excruciating in bold) after a filling.

    The only things that spring to mind are that either the tooth still has some decay in it that wasn't cleaned out properly before the filling was done or if it's extreme pain, there could be an absess under the tooth due to the level if decay in the tooth. If it is an absess then you would need a course of antibiotics to clear it up before it gets really bad. Best thing would be to see your dentist asap.

    On antibiotics (5th day) but no improvement, much worse actually. He's saying probably root-canal treatment required. I'm wondering about just getting the filling done again.

    If root canal treatment is required then that basically means that the tooth has died. The filling would have been done in an attempt to prevent this happening but it doesn't always work. Re-doing the filling won't work. Root canal treatment will be an atempt at keeping the tooth in the mouth. The root will be removed and the tooth cleaned inside before being totally filled. Will involve about 3 or 4 visits to your dentist so quite a lengthy treatment plan.

    The treatment itself shouldn't cause you any pain now that the tooth is dead.

    You say it mainly happens when you have something hot or cold. That's odd, and not being a medical professional, not something I can explain. But do you mean it happens when you drink a drink (hot or cold)? I wonder if it's something to do with the liquid entering the problem area in a way that food is unlikely to?

    Food and drink mal.

    The pain I had earlier was unlike any I've ever experienced. It sounds melodramatic, but fuck me it hurt. I've had an abscess and I know what that feels like. That's nothing. I'm not typically a squeamish person and not a baby when it comes to pain. It's why I can't understand quite why it's hurting so damn much (for about an hour to two hours after eating) when I had no pain before.

    I'll get it checked again this week sometime (whenever I can get some time off of work), and it'll prob be root-canal, which I've had before so know what to expect, but I was just hoping it would be just a case of redoing the filling. :o(

    My turn chaps

    I'm having the 2 lower ones ripped out (due to the fact they are running along/under the gum line, it looks horrible on the xray) I will report back later...if I pull through
