Biting a cold teabag

These last two weeks since my emergency dental surgery have been rough. My face and jaw still hurt so I was back for my SIXTH urgent-enough-to-see-a-dentist-during-a-pandemic visit.

The great news is that my extraction site is not infected. The not-so-great news is that the wound is healing very slowly (and another nearby tooth broke).

Today’s excellent dental tip was to refrigerate a wet teabag and use it as a cold compress in my mouth. Not only was it an excellent trick for a bit of pain relief, but Mama got to enjoy the lovely cuppa I made for her. A teabag compress is also supposed to help with inflammation. Fingers crossed! In the meantime, I keep startling myself with the string hanging out of my mouth, forgetting there’s a teabag in my mouth.

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was gently biting a cold teabag to heal my mouth! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

  1. Good to hear you use the expression “cuppa”. I thought that was only a UK term. You could always cut the string off, you know ☺! It’s wonderful to hear how you can be so upbeat when you are in pain — and there’s hardly anything worse than a toothache. What’s going on with your calcium intake that you have teeth breaking?
