"Extraction at Morecambe"

About: Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust / Dental services

(as the patient),

I had a toothache for few weeks. I was trying to get to a Dentist for 3 weeks and when I finally got there my nightmare has started.

I needed an extraction. My dentist gave me too small amount of injection so I could feel the pain but It was ok. I don't care. He took my tooth out on Saturday now It's friday and I found out I have a piece of tooth inside... I have even worst pain now than I had when that tooth was on it's place... I mean my mouth (gum) (whatever). Now I need to go to a private dentist to take that piece of tooth out and pay another 80 pounds. I will never ever ever ever go to the NHS Dentist again. I just spent 18 pounds for nothing! I've bought more pain. Thanks... Not happy patient with "piece of tooth" pain.
