Hey All! I found this forum a while ago and it has help to calm some of my nerves. I have a cracked molar that has hurt off and on for a few years. The crack did not become visible till a few weeks ago and it was recommended that I have it pulled as they are calling it a cracked root. Anyway, I have been very busy and not had a free moment to get the tooth pulled. I am a photographer and have had many weddings planned. Well, i just got back from a trip to Portland and the tooth hurt so bad. When I had visited the oral surgeon he gave my my scrips for after the extraction. I started on the antibiotics straight away and the pain is pretty much gone. I have an appointment tomorrow at 10:30 am to have it pulled but I am coming down with a bad chest/head cold and I don't know what to do? He also gave me a scrip for Valium 10mg...please tell me this will work? this tooth has three roots in it and I am scared to death! I don't want to do anything to risk my health though by waiting to have it removed. Please advice, success stories, anything would be appreciated!
