Went to see a oral surgeon today about a getting a tooth pulled.....

My filling came out and it hurts really bad, not to mention part of my tooth had broken off. They tell me they don't have an opening all summer. Should I have to put up with this or what? That's 3 months away!

  • I know they're usually very busy, but I'd shop around for something/someone sooner, esp. if it happens to be bothering you. I can't believe you have to wait 3 mos, but sometimes they also make you wait if it's infected. If you were put on antibiotics and told to come back that would be part of the problem, they won't do anything while it's infected. Othewise, like I said, shop around if your in a lot of pain.

  • Go to another dentist...hope u feel better.
    Use some kind of numbing gel from the drugstore for now.

  • A regular dentist can pull a tooth too. There r walk ins and emergencies. Is your tooth infected? R u on antibiotics?

  • Go to another dentist. Ask other around you who they see and what quality of service they received.

  • You don't really need an oral surgeon to take a tooth out. Call a Dentist.
    You're in pain, they will consider that an emergency dear.
    Your nerve is probably exposed getting air on it and nothing will stop that kind of pain for long.
    This happened to my DH and they took it out same day!
    Good Luck!.. You poor thing!!....That's got to be driving you crazy. OUCH!
