    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    A couple of months ago I felt a small blister on my gumline. A dentist determined through xrays that I had an impacted wisdom tooth that had a bad spot on it and the tooth had to come out. I went to the oral surgeon that had taken out all the rest of my teeth a few years ago and they decided since it was a wisdom tooth on the bottom jaw and because it was laying sideways and fused to the jawbone it would have to be taken out in the operating room. The tooth was removed without incident and I my jawbone is still healing and mending as of today, 3 weeks later.
