My DH swears he takes excellent care of his teeth. Well he doesn't. His breath stinks...& it's been worse lately. When he was in the USMC he ended up having a root canal on a molar. Fast forward 2 years and he's in excruciating pain...same tooth. Plus the one under it is hurting too. Our new dental insurance becomes active tomorrow. He asked me to go ahead and call the dentist today & set up an appointment. The soonest they can see him is next Friday..which is the day he wanted the appointment anyway. So tonight he is texting me nonstop about how bad it hurts. The whole right side of his face hurts, etc. He is living with his brother in Va for work. I still stay in our house with the kids in NC until we can sell and move. So...I know very little about his area. He wants me to find him an emergency dentist. So I look. I called at least 3 different dentists but none are open 24 hrs. I finally found that u can call and give them your zip code, and they will refer u to the closest 24 hr dentist. So I have him the # to call. He says he already called it. I know better and called him out on it. He says he called another # like that & there are none in his area. So I tell him to call his mom (a nurse) for advice. He says she won't answer. I told him to text. He says she won't text. I told him that's bullshit Bc she has texted me before. I told him to try his dad. He says he's asleep. I told him to take a 800 mg ibuprofen. He says he did but it didn't help. See where I'm going here? So finally, I stumbled across a post on here about a woman who's husband tried a natural remedy for his abscessed tooth. I told him to buy some olive leaf oil for possible infection and clove oil for pain. He say he tried it and it didn't help. Wtf?! I know he didn't just have that shit laying around lol. So I again call him out. He said his other roommate had some natural shit he tried and it didn't help. So I said to give it try anyway. He doesn't want to spend the money. Ugh! Wtf am I supposed to do? I'm 4-5 hours away! If he would brush, floss, and use mouthwash likes he claims he does, he might not have this problem. He so lazy! So yes...I hope his nasty rotten ass teeth fall the hell out!!!
UPDATE: WOW! This is first time I've ever had a featured post! Thanks everyone!
The point of my post was so vent about my manchild lol I hate to see or hear about him in pain. I've made calls and researched remedies for him and he just won't take any advice! He just wants to complain and not do anything for himself. I'm over 4 hours hours away but even if I were closer...I'm not a dentist! He finally took a shot of whiskey and swished with Apple cider vinegar. It's helped some...so hopefully he'll keep it up (the vinegar at least)!
