WISDOM TEETH

A potential holiday nightmare

A week before our holiday and teeth problems not what I wanted, a back upper tooth “Wisdom” shed a filling which left the whole thing with sharp edges prompting a visit to see the Dentist. It turns out the tooth in question is so broken and damaged it cannot be saved, therefor a need for extraction 😒 after quite a tugging and pulling ordeal by the more than capable Dentist and his assistant the thing was out, and my mouth felt like a game of rugby union had been held in there. The procedure left me feeling pretty worn out and the staff at the dental practice thankfully contacted my wife who came to collect me, so a massive big thank you to all at the practice. 😂😂😂

A wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars per Quadrant of the human dentition. Most adults have four wisdom teeth (a third molar in each of the four quadrants), but it is possible to have fewer or more.  Photo by Hic et nunc
