Pity party warning.
I have 2 bottom wisdom teeth that have been causing me a bit of grief for a while.. I have never had the money just sitting there to go get them looked at, they weren't really painful so I just left them.
Kicking myself now for not putting money away for a time like this.
Last night I woke in excruciating pain.. Out of a ten it would be a 20. It is bad.
Its on my right side down the bottom, the tooth had partially broken through.
I can't swallow with out pain, and My jaw on the right side is swollen.
I took so much nurofen and Panadol with no luck.. I had some Endone left after my c-section so I took 2 and it hasn't done anything other than make me sleepy.
I called the dentist, they need to do an x-ray to see if it's impacted or not, if it isn't they can remove it for a very reasonable price X ray $40 removal $120.. If it is impacted then I have to get referrals to oral surgeon which I just don't have the money for..
Apparently oral surgeons don't do payment plans?
but how long will I have to wait to see an oral surgeon?!?
I can't live with this pain for much longer...
Why in the world are wisdom teeth removal not bulk billed OR at least some Medicare rebate on them.. *Screaming*
Im seriously hoping that this dam tooth is NOT impacted and they can remove it there.. Considering ripping out the tooth next to it to give it some room lol, of course I wouldn't do that but it's a tempting thought.
I don't think I even want to know of the cost for an "Oral surgeon" and how long I will be waiting with this pain to see one.
let alone where I'm going to pull the $$$ from.
;( ;( ;( this pain is horrid.
