A couple of years ago I had a bad root canal. I will spare the details but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>
never stopped hurting, dentist didn't believe me, etc. I believe it's likely the molar was literally infected for years. So fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. The majority of the tooth
broke off. I saw a dentist last Tuesday, 6 days ago. They pulled the tooth
on the spot. Three days later I developed dry socket. Lots of pain, lots of swelling, back to the dentist.
