My husband went to get his dentures and have his front teeth pulled. The dentist could not get his 2 top canines out, so he sawed them off at the gumline, and put the dentures in. My husband is diabetic and heals slowly. He also gets infections easliy. The dentist said that the gums would hopefuly grow around the cut off teeth and that would avoid infection. The exposed nerves are causing serious pain. Is this procedure normal? What can we do to ease the pain?
