I had an upper tooth
pulled last Wednesday. it was second from the last tooth
(not including wisdom tooth
, it never formed). it ended up being a "surgical" extraction
, whatever that means. the tooth
and roots came out separately. and I was in the chair for over half an hour.
my question is about packing that was put in socket. the dr had the assistant put some sort of medicated packing in there. i think she said to *not* take it out. it would come out on it's own.
