Hi everybody, I had one of my molars extracted today. It had a root canal on it and was abscessed. It was number 18. The extraction went just fine. I had the ligament cleaned out and ozone with PRF and bone graft. The membrane was sutured in. So I did okay during the extraction but since I’ve been home I’ve been having awful anxiety. I’m so afraid of dislodging the blood clot that I don’t feel like I can swallow normal or go to sleep. I clench my teeth at night and I’m afraid it’ll cause some pressure/pulling on the site. I just noticed that the whole right side of my face from my forehead to my cheek is feeling like it’s still kinda numb. I can feel myself touching my skin just fine but it feels kinda tingly and numb still. Idk how it can be both but now I’m terrified of nerve damage. My teeth on the right side also feel numb/swollen still. My neck feels tight too. Any advice or reassurance would be great cause I don’t know how I’m ever going to sleep again and that’s just making my anxiety worse!
