So I finally lost the battle with my upper right second molar. I had a root canal done about two years ago and have had problems with it ever since. The extraction was done by Dr. Grenadier at no cost to me (sweet!). The procedure was kind of rough but it was so worth it because I haven't been in any pain since it was taken out. Here are a couple of photos of me for the next three days.
Day two ( yes I am wearing the same grubby jammies)
All the swelling subsided after about a week. Very glad to have my face back to normal. Bonus since the extraction was done I have almost completely stopped grinding my teeth at night and my teeth fully close now!
