I'm going to see the dentist monday and im pretty sure i have an impacted wisdom tooth. The pain has been pretty bad for the last three days. If I get it taken out monday am I an idiot for trying to take this test thursday or should i be good? lol.
This is the same for me. As far as i remember it really wasnt that bad. Everyone is different though and i know someone who got an infection and it was really bad but she probably wasnt cleaning it right. I think if you take care of it and rinse when youre supposed to you will be just fine. Good Luck!I don't think he/she would pull it out right then and there. When I got my wisdom teeth removed I went in for a referral and then he scheduled me to come in 2 weeks later. Gave me drugs in the meantime for the pain and swelling.
Im sure he will give you antibiotics but ask if there is anything that can help. Maybe if you explain you will be taking the MCAT and he can give you something else.thanks for the ideas; as long as he gives me something for the pain no worries. Just need to stay focused for the mcat Lol
Definitely explain to him/her the situation and see if he can get you a good topical to put on yourself. May not happen, but the worst they can say is no. I wouldn't recommend being on an opiate based or any narcotic pain killer during the MCAT...thanks for the ideas; as long as he gives me something for the pain no worries. Just need to stay focused for the mcat Lol
