    My Marine Bro, bout 6 foot 5 at the V.A. dentist.. Needs a tooth pulled.. Little mix up, thought they gave him pain killer.. He don't know what the hell is going on. Dentist comes in, starts yanking..
    He came out of that chair, took 10 guys to get his hands off the poor Doctors throat..

    Pulling a bad tooth without something to deaden it is doable, they did it before novacaine, but what worries me more is if we get a tooth impacted and theres no antibiotic availible. Folks have died from this. If you pull a tooth that is infected the infection may get into your bloodstream, and your screwed. If you leave it alone the infection will spread, eating away at your jawbone, and eventually spreading to the bloodsteam, screwed this way too. Ramses the great was killed by a friggen bad tooth. When they x-rayed his mummy they found a large void in his jawbone where the infection had done its work. So some home made antibiotics should be high on the list.

    Back in the day when I had dental insurance, when I called my Dentist and said I had a toothache, he prescribed antibiotics and a couple days worth of pain pills over the phone and setup an appointment a week later. Knocked the infection down, got rid of the pain, and then he would fill or yank the tooth at the appointment. Lately, the dentists I have seen want to do everything in one visit with no antibiotics at all! Also, my original Dentist always described my aching teeth as being "abscessed" and the cause was the cavity that had allowed the bacteria into the tooth interior. Lately, the Doc described a tooth in the X-Ray as having an "abscess" and the only choices were root canal or removal! How about we try some keflex and amalgam first, Doc?

I found all kinds of dental tools and medical tools on ebay and other auction sites and just by searching for medical and or dental tools for sale. and make sure of few things #1 you steralize your equipment, #2 If you remove any teeth especially in the back put some gauze in your mouth one to stop the bleeding,
    and avoild getting a dry socket in your mouth that is one pain you dont want.!! #3 get the tooth removed as quickly as possible to avoid any further infection, and remember that bad teeth left unattended the side effect of this can at some point cause a heart attack. And put some extra strength pain asprin or save what is left of old prescriptions such as anitbiotiocs and pain relievers, and other medicine you may need....Doc
    Yeah I've used the alcohol on a cotton ball trick before. My mother used to do that to/for me when I was a kid. It definitely works.
