Back in May, on a flight, I bit into a dinner roll that had a rock in it. I bit into the roll, thought I broke my crown on tooth 8, moved food to the bck of my mouth and found my tooth was fine. Moved food around and found a seed, pulled it out, continued chewing only to bite on the rock again!
SO, make this story short. LOTS of pain. I have had a root canal on teeth 3 and 4. Temporary crowns were put on them and tooth 3 became SO painful. Dentist and endodontist concluded that the crown would not contain the entire crack as it went clear to the root, so I had tooth extracted on this past Monday. I also got a bone graft at the time. My mouth has a HORRID taste, I can barely stand it. My kids don't want me to talk to them because my mouth "smells like puke." I am following instructions, eating soft food, rinsing with salt water, the rinse they gave me and taking penicillin.
I do still have pain, but also need root canals on #5 and possible #30. Because of money, we are tackling the most painful teeth first. I do feel much better, but the tooth extraction was NOTHING like I expected, the tooth broke along the crack, had to be cut in two to get it out, etc. My cheek is bruised too.
My husband had dry sockets when he had his wisdom teeth removed and I am worried about that. The taste is horrible and I can't make it go away! Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

Dear michelle.achliman,

the healing of an extraction wound takes approx. 6 weeks, but the first week is the worst and since the procedure was complicated, the painful healing is expected. When the antibiotics start working, proper healing will most likely take place. If the pain doesn´t become smaller, you should definitely check up with your dentist.

OK, I have been getting the site packed for 3 days now. What is the best way to determine where my pain is coming from? The extraction site, tooth #4 (needs permanent crown placed, but I am sure it hurts still), OR tooth #5 that may need a root canal, OR may just be radiating pain. The dentist, endodontist AND oral surgeon say the next step is MY decision. They aren't suggesting anything at this point! I am SO frustrated. The dentist suggested doing the root canal on 5, and then we can crown 4 and 5 at the same time. BUT, if crowning 4 will make it all stop hurting... ?? any advice would be appreciated. THANK YOU!

And eventually, I will be getting an implant for tooth #3.

After an extraction and graft there are bits of the covering membrane as well as your own flesh that deteriorate and smell horrible. This should abate after about a week. If not, it may be coming from one of your other infections.

Many times fair-skinned females bruise after difficult extractions.

Did you alert the airline about the debris in the food? Seems to me they should help pay for this expensive procedure.

I went and saw my dentist today. The temporary crown on #4 was adjusted. He did cold test on the teeth. #5 was very sensitive. BUT, we decided to let extraction heal and wait about 3 weeks before we decide what to do next.

Was trying to settle on my own with airline, but it isn't working out well. Talking with a lawyer now. They admit they are liable, but don't want to pay for everything.

Thanks so much for your info!
