I have 2 bad teeth that have to be extracted this month(22nd). They are just driving me nuts but thankfully the pain has stopped, mostly anyway. One is from a bad root canal & the other is from the bone failing (because of chemotherapy i had when i was younger). One tooth has stopped hurting completely and the abcess seems to have went away but the other one is still really swollen and has not started causing a bad taste in my mouth...talk about gross, i have been popping mints like crazy & it seems like the brushing & rinsing and mouth wash doesnt help at all. ever had a bad tooth like this? I really can't wait to get them out, they are just making me crazy.
