The whole process of yanking my 2 teeth out was awful enough to not make me want to schedule the next extraction appointment but not as bad as it could have been. The shots were painful but I chose to do local anesthesia instead of general because the recovery time is so much quicker. The yanking, cracking and twisting was quite unnerving. The top tooth came out without much trouble. The bottom one didn't let go without a fight. The dental assistant took 2 xrays to make sure that all of the roots had been removed. She messed up both of them so they ended up doing the whole mouth xray for no additional cost.
Unfortunately, there was a little root fragment left behind(see photo, lover left) so they went in again and dug it out. Not fun. I was so glad when it was over. I paid my $500 out of my health savings account and went over to the drug store for some Vicoden. So far I don't need the big drugs. I took 3 tylenol and have been putting ice on it. If the pain doesn't get any worse, I think I will be ok going to work tomorrow.
