Dressing Removal After Extraction?
I saw an Oral Surgeon 2 weeks ago who removed a bottom lower molar. I was in a lot of pain (so much even Lortab didn't help) a week later he put a dressing that tastes like listerine into the hole which did help. I go back this week to have it removed but i'm scared that the hole may be closing making the removal of the dressing hurt (since i'm into my 3rd week of the removal). I have been pondering what level of pain it may cause when I go in for the dressing removal, so to ease my racing mind, will it hurt at all? If so, what can I do to prepare (eg.orajel..etc)
