Hi I am very nervous about a planned extraction lower molar root filled.Dentist could see some infection and recommends extraction.I am not in any pain.But I am 75 and worried about healing.I’m in good health.Has any mature person here had teeth out?Would be so grateful for some reassurance.
I had numerous teeth removed between 65 and 70. No real issues, you just take a little longer to heal.
Thanks.Will stock up on soup and paracetamol !☺️@biffo1963
