Since a week, the abscessed tooth eruption has made me sick. It really hurts a lot. I have scheduled an appointment for the emergency tooth extraction surgery ( http://www.emergency-dental-365.com/procedures/eme... ) in a dental clinic in Toronto. I was instructed not to eat anything 8 hours prior to surgery. I know that the removal of impacted teeth is a serious surgical procedure. Postoperative care is very important. I just want to know what am I supposed to eat after the abscessed tooth is removed? What downtime should I expect? Any advice or suggestion will be highly appreciated.
