The tooth is gone.
Had plenty of Novocaine, and gas for about 10 minutes.
The actually extraction took less than two minutes, and there was no pain, just some pressure. Got two stitches that will melt in about 10 days.
Was told to ice it for two days, to avoid swelling.
And to use heat on the third day to keep the muscles loose.
Still using Arnica tablets, not that much pain, really...and the pain meds the surgeon prescribed.
Soft foods yesterday, and today. Yogurt, scrambled eggs, homemade cream of tomato soup, hummus.
Will add regular foods back tomorrow....."crunchy" foods being added last.
