Aftercare after exraction
Paul is a brilliant dentist who really knows his stuff He is incredible at getting teeth out and fillings (so much so you actually don't feel a single thing! ) and very friendly. Having moved from Paul's dentist to another closer to home and having a terrible experience I decided to go back to him as i know you can trust his opinion and he's extremely good at what he does!! 100% trust when it comes to this guy! I recently had a deeply impacted wisdom tooth that needed an operation so Paul referred to the NHS. Being in too much pain I paid to get the extraction done privately. The dentist who did my extraction was great at removing the tooth, especially as it was quite complicated, but unfortunately the aftercare was not very good, sent home without pain relief or antibiotics or mouthwash (and paid £150 for an X-ray they told me i could keep but then didn't give me a copy). I was in horrific pain. I hadn't eaten, hadn't slept, I had a face like Desperate Dan and really in a state. I was worried it might have got infected due to the intense pain and how hot and red the swelling was so I phoned my Gp who didnt want to know. Now at the point of total despair my mum phoned Paul and he fitted me within the hour, walking in I cried and he gave me total reassurance that there was no infection and the pain was due to the amount of trauma caused due to it being a complicated extraction. He gave me the correct pain relief and antibiotics as precaution and within an hour having the correct anti- inflamatories started to bring down the swelling and actually touched the pain I was in. It might only be a small act but from being in so pain to having some relief and having someone help me, well i couldn't of appreciated it more! I cant rate this dentist enough, all my family go there because he really is one of the best dentists around! Ive been told I need fillings by other dentist and gone to him and he's said nope no fillings, really just gives you proper and correct dental treatment along with good care! Honestly and sincerely the best dentist I have ever been.
