Oral Surgery/impacted wisdom teeth


Hello, I found out 3 months ago I had my bottom 3rd molars were impacted, also dentergeos cysts. I had a referall from my dentist.
after not hearing from the dentist for three months, I called a third time. this office lost my records when they changed ttheir computer system. I have suffered over 2 years with burning skin, flushing, chills and cold sweats. Now I had waited 3months! I had an appointment, but unfortuanately my alarm didn't go off. I couldn't believe it. now I have been on over 3 months of pcn and Keflex alternating. the infection is ever present. apparenty this has been infected since moving from az to mn. My dentist in az said nothing about the impactions, and he did a panoramic view. even mayo clinic could not figure out where my symptoms were coming from. I had no pain at all. but I did have a metal taste in my mouth. I need to get these impacted teeth out fast as I think I am not far from becoming septic. no wonder I had been so sick. I cant tolerate sitting in the sun due to the symptoms. If u have any advice where I can find a oral surgeon that will take u care, I really cant wait another three months. I will have people call me to wake up if need be. thank you so much for listening. I lie in international falls MN, no oral surgeons here. I would have to go to Duluth or Virginia. Thank you  Dr. Teig. I am a RN and cannot find anyone to help me with a emergency appointment.

Deborah-I am not familiar with U Care, but my suggestion is that you contact U Care and ask them for the names of oral surgeons near where u live.  They may be able to assist you getting an oral surgeon to see you as soon as possible.  Good luck, I wish you well.
