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.
