    Was in the chair for 8 hours complete cleaning (scaling) removal\replacement of mercuy amalgum fillings, replaced missing fillings and 3 extractions (one due to condition and two due to infection and bone loss. Bone grafts for implant placement done.

    Wasnt too bad, was happily out of it during the work. Sore afterword but a little Tylenol III took care of that.

    Hip surgery here I come.

    Thats a long time. I'm glad it went well. How about posting some radiographs. Us dental nerds want to see.

    I'm glad it went well. I have had a bad experience with a filling once and it took me years to get back into a dentist's office.

    I was laying there getting a filling on a rear molar when I started hearing things like,
    " this is harder then I thought" & "we need to stop the bleeding"

    Hope you heal up quickly.
    You can alternate ibuprofen and acetaminophen to keep the pain down and stay within the daily and hourly dosages.

    Yikes. 70 years ago I was on the OR table, they were using ether which takes awhile to knock you out and I heard the surgeon say that he had to rush through the case to be at his kids birthday party. Some things you never forget. But, he was the doctor that delivered me and I am here now. I have a lousy scar but I am here.
