Sounds like a great idea if you feel up to it @mikey boy 🙂 ! Hope the hygienist turns out just as nice as the rest of your dental team👍. Do you know who you will be seeing? Is it the same one that looks after your brother?

@mikey boy well that was a huge amount of work that you went through so go easy on yourself and give yourself time to heal.
I wouldn't borrow trouble thinking about periodontal issues right now I think if you just allow your body to heal and be cautious in how you eat lots of salt water rinses you're going to be okay.

It's hugely invasive and overwhelmingly intimidating so I get it you're in the right place we all understand here and relate and care.

Well the next appointment isn’t for another 3 weeks so I’m definitely taking things easy and just focusing on my healing for now

so I figured today I would give you guys kind of an update on how I’m feeling it’s been three weeks since my last set of extractions and I feel amazing today no pain whatsoever I actually think that this side is healing much faster this time than the other side which might be because I stopped using gauze like a couple hours after the appointment where as last time I had gauze in my mouth all night kind of weird but anyways just thought I would keep you guys updated hope everyone has a great day

I think you will look back on this and be grateful you went through the process.
You are young too, and this is all worth it.
