I had 4 wisdom teeth taken out with just local pain killers. Fine, no big deal. A week later I come down with a horrible infection and have 2 dry sockets. The dentist I saw did not give me any antibiotics or painkillers at the time of extraction so I called them. The receptionist told me that no Dentists were in and I would have to wait until Monday/Tuesday to see one...it was Friday. I ended up at Urgent Care with 103* fever and miserable. The Doctor there gave me antibiotics and pain relievers to help me through.
The extraction itself went fairly well, both Dentist and assistant were great. It was the aftercare that I was very disappointed in.
