Some will recall that I queried pre-empting dental work with antibiotics. There was no overall conclusion and the advice I got was I did not need them.
Last week the root canal work was completed and the crown fitted. There were various delays in the referral to the oral surgeon for the tooth that needed extracting. This finally happened on Monday after an uncomfortable weekend as the tooth split on Friday evening. It was quite an unpleasant experience that lasted an hour as when it broke it left part of the root. Currently my gum is stitched up.and quite sore which is part of the reason I have not been about. I am watching it like a hawk as any sign of infection I will be demanding antibiotics. After everything I do not want anything jeopordised for the lack of a few tablets.
