I had a filling done today. They propped my jaws open so far that when they were done, I couldn't close them -- it was like my jaws were stuck. So they finally closed them and my jaws popped back into place, but it hurt like nothing else in this world. I cried so hard (and then my mom yelled at me for it, but that's beside the point.)
I am in so much pain right now. My entire face hurts and if I open my mouth too far, I know they'd pop out again. My upper teeth hurt so much. But most of all, it just hurts to move my jaws... at all. I don't want to eat because I know it's going to hurt. And I am so hungry.
Is there anything, anything at all, I can do besides taking tylenol for this? Heat, cold, take a shower, what should I do?
Somebody, please, help me. Please.
