Hello. I had six botton teeth removed about four weeks ago. Was supposed to get implants . But, after my dentist drilled four holes in my lower jaw he determined that it would not hold the screws right now. He also split my gums open and filed my jawbone down. Had alot of sutures. For over a week now it starting hurting really bad. When i took a look at it i see that my bone is exposed on the backside . This dentist has made my experience a living painful hell. Is this normal? Can it be fixed? How?

I am a forty four year old female that has scheduled to have oral surgery on Dec. 2, 2014. I have gone in and done X-rays, had the impressions made for permanent / dentures. I was also given a prescription of Penicillin VK 500 MG to take every 6 hours. I have been following these instructions very carefully. However, during the past 24 hours I have had a huge turn for the worse. I have 2 jaw teeth on the lower left side broken off and my nerves are exposed, on the right hand side I have three teeth broken off with my nerves exposed and I woke up yesterday morning with the whole side of my face swollen and my jaw bone hurting me so bad. From a 1-10 scale it is a 10! I am not able to eat any solid food and it hurts to touch my face. I just need to know if I can get help with this at the hospital? This is absolute agony. Can you please help me? I would be so thankful!

Hi i have a wide lower lip which droops and exposes all of my front lower teeth and gum when i m relaxed. I find myself pulling my lower lip in and my jaw back all the time just to speak and prevent drooling. It s causing my jaw to be really uncomfortable. It s affecting my life in the sense that i cannot fully relax and unable to concentrate in my studies. What should i do about this? Thanks alot.
