I can feel it. It's sharp... I have tried rubbing it with a dry toothbrush... picking at it with my finger... rubbing it with my tongue, still there. Tried letting it alone to see if it'll fall out on its own...a week later, no

Dentists have officially closed for three weeks but for emergencies due to Corona, and this isn't an emergency 😭

Um ignore this post. I think it dun popped out. Funny, I was watching a show on our lady of Knock on EWTN, crying about how painful it was getting, then boom, there it is. Talk about small miracles. ❤ it still hurts but this sucker left a mark. So it's gotta heal. But what a relief. Power of prayer 🙌

I hope this was the last one.

Glad it managed to come out.. my understanding of these things is that you can't do much more than wait until they made themselves out through the gum.. hope the sore spot heals soon

It seemed so small... but it was such a big pain. I'll say it was worse than the extractions themselves. But I feel so much better. Even my gums have finally stopped swelling.
