I had a similar experience... I was put under as mine were a bear to get out. He basically had to crush my bottom ones to get them out. They oozed for a week or two and then healed. The b!tch was that a few months later I bit down on something hard and felt brief pain... and something pointy... It was a shattered tooth splinter that worked its way out from my gums. This happened 2-3 times as I recall. I pulled them out with tweezers and moved on.
Makes me wonder if the guy was a dentist or a sadist.
