Anyone else had this done to put in a new tooth? What do I have to look forward to?

Drilled on me for what seemed like forever, screwed in this stainless steel or titanium screw, sewed my gums back together and told me not to do anything strenuous for a couple of days.

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to clean the Yugo M59 sks that was delivered from Aim yesterday.

I don't have a screw, but I did have a tooth rebuilt where they removed it, put in a post, and built a new foundation for a crown. Not fun.

BTW, don't eat a "whopper" right after the surgery no matter how good your pain meds are. I had to throw that shirt away.

Stopped at Burger King on my way home but all I got was a Chocolate shake.

Yeah, after oral surgery keep to soft foods, preferrably cold. I had all of my wisdom teeth out a couple years ago and learned.

Also keep some paper towels around... since the whole lower half of my face was completely numb, drooling was a problem. And if the nurse tells you to eat something when you take your pain meds... DO IT. They gave me some hydrocodone and she told me to eat... but I took some right before she called to check up on me. I said I felt fine. Not long after, I was hurling in the sink. Not a pleasant experience. Though the painkillers worked great!

Yea, that's exactly what they told me.

I don't have a problem taking the pain meds, I use the same ones for a back problem I have.

I'm eating a chocolate shake right now with a spoon and drooling all over the place.
