    Default Frickin' Wisdom Tooth (ATTN: SPIDER)

    So, apparently, I have a big ass wisdom tooth on the upper right. My dentist hemmed and hawed about it (it's pretty far back there, and it's a big tooth...I mean, I could do it, but you could also go to an oral surgeon....it's up to you) and when I decided to let him do it after discussing with my Dad, he said "Why don't I just refer you to an oral surgeon and write you a prescription?"

    The tooth is partially erupted and apparently cutting my cheek a bit. He wrote me a prescription for AMoxicillin. The oral surgeon said they need a consult first and aren't able to fit me in until next Wednesday (just for the CONSULT). This particularly sucks because I have Finals coming up, and I really haven't been able to study. This sucks balls.

    Anyways, I was told I should come over and mention it to Spider just to get an opinion, so I thought I would.

    Any opinion, Spider?

    The amoxicillin will get rid of any infection, but won't keep the tooth from cutting into your cheek. Call the first dentist, tell him that you're in a lot of pain and the oral surgeon can't get you in for a consultation until next week, and ask him if he can grind down the part of the tooth that is cutting into your cheek. I'd leave out the part about it sucking balls.

    You don't think he'll get a more accurate diagnosis if he leaves that chestnut in there?

    He might get referred to a urologist.

    Spider,

    Thanks for the help, sir. My dentist's office was already closed when I saw your message, so I'll try and find one when I go back to school, but the tooth isn't poking out THAT much, so I don't know how much they will be able to do. It's pretty close to the gum. But I'll let the experts do their thing.
