Dentist problems!

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    Pretty random post but basically I went to the dentist yesterday as I was having pain in my mouth. To cut a long story short the dentist told me I had an infection under my gum at the back of my mouth. The dentist then used a blunt needle to squirt antibacterial mouth wash under my gum. Now here is what I find strange, he gave me the blunt needle to take home to carry on this procedure at home. I just thought that was pretty strange as he never gave me any safety tips and he just roughly told me what to do! This happened to anyone else? Is he allowed to make me carry out this kind of thing at home without any help? Just curious and would like your opinions haha !

    That sounds very odd. Might be best to ask at some online place that dentists frequent (sorry!).
