I've had an impacted tooth that's been bothering me. About a month ago it snapped off while I was eating something crunchy, but since it was impacted I couldn't rip it out. So I've been wiggling it since.
Today I took a final tug at it while in the shower and it popped out sideways. Some moderate bleeding later, a took a look and it seems fine. No swelling, although my gum in the gap looks like a shriveled lump, kind of like if you put a balloon in your fist and tried to blow it up. So I'll be going crazy with the mouthwash for the next few weeks. There also seems to be a splinter of the root stuck in there, I wonder if it's safe to yank out...
Thought you all would want to know.
