Dear lybrate-user, please relax. First of all the cotton pack used must have been a sterilized one so there are very less chances of some kind of infection. Secondly please pay attention while passing stools. It may come out that way. If not then you need to see a gastero-enterologist. Chances of the later option are rare. Cheers.

Highly carious & mobile tooth can be extracted. It is necessary to replace the extracted tooth, otherwise your opposing & the adjacent tooth drifts to fill the gaps. Try to avoid extraction because so many options are there nowadays to save your tooth.

I got 3 fillings in my teeth around 2 months ago. They were silver fillings. But I still have bitter and metallic taste in my mouth from last 2 months. Whenever my tongue touches my gums and tooth area, there is horrible taste. I have checked my fever and other problems .there are no other health issues. Should I get my fillings replaced? I also got a tooth extracted. The reason being this taste is silver fillings or the dental anaesthesia which was used to extract tooth? Really very horrible taste. Pls let me know what should I do?
