Wisdom tooth extraction went well and the dentists and staff are lovely. But, nobody really gave me any proper post-operative advice, I wasn't told not to drink through a straw (which I actually thought would be better than drinking normally), or not to spit, swill or brush properly for 24 hours, and I have ended up with an incredibly painful dry socket which has been causing me intense pain for ten days now. I trusted the information they had given me and it was nowhere near as detailed as what is available on the NHS website. I'm really unhappy to know that I could have avoided this pain if I had been better informed.
