I suffer from anxiety and my dentist referred me to the hospital for a tooth extraction. It all went fine at the time but as soon as the procedure finished I was dismissed instantly. I was never explained any aftercare or what could happen.
Anyway two days after surgery I was in excruciating pain. I rang the hospital begging them to see me and they said they won't. I rang 111 and they couldn't do anything. I ended up finding an emergency dentist to take a look at my mouth and they said I had a dry socket and an infection. They said the way the tooth was pulled out it wasn't done correctly there is a lot of trauma to the gum. I had to pay over £100 for this service.
I'm completely and utterly disappointed with the hospital. How can you carry out a procedure and if something goes wrong after you won't see the patient? I have been traumatised by this whole experience.
"Awful experience "
