Tooth extraction

I went to dentist today after two weeks of nagging pain in top left tooth. Dentist: ooooh I'll just pull it out! Five needles , several drills( including smoke from my tooth, I kid you not) and hitting it with hammer the tooth is out . I think I'll leave it alone next time!

Oh you poor thing. But you did the right thing and you went to get help. Just think how terrible it would have been had you left it. You wont regret having the tooth out. Was it a wisdom tooth , being so difficult to extract?

Thanks yes, you guessed right it was a wisdom tooth that had grown at a funny angle, and was fused to the jaw bone. Thanks for the sympathy. I'm just about to try a bit of Luke warm milk
