Posted by: Extraction &  Fillings in one day? | 2009/02/09




I' ve just had 4 fillings done. The problem is that I need to have a tooth extracted. I asked the dentist if it would be possible to do so, after my fillings but he said no, as he' d given me enough anesthetic (spelling?) for one day.
If I wait until about 17h00, this evening, will I still be able to do the extraction? Or is it still too soon? I dont think I can deal with the pain or taking painkillers much longer...

Thanks so much!

Whenever dealing with anaesthetics and medication it is only wise to decide on the saftey of the procedure after a full medical history has been taken
Only your dentist can advise you on this. I am unfortunately not able to give you an indication in this case as I am unaware of your health/medical condition
