So ........ what to expect? Is it as bad as people make it out to be? Any tips and advice? Share them now, before the teeth get pulled and my wisdom is gone forever
I'm not the person to ask if you want comfort. As I was one who had the nightmare 3 hour surgery that everything went wrong.
Overall it should go quick and easy, pulling all 4 wisdom teeth at once. I had room in my mouth for them but not room to brush them properly.
First advice - if there is any issue and they need to send you home part way, make sure you know what is done and yet to go. I have 2.5 teeth removed and the surgeon aborted.
He booked me in to see a "better" endodontist. Um... why was I not seeing the good one?
Turns out they should have made the call an emergency and not a regular appointment. Took them 3 months to get me in at which point I had a really bad infection.
The endodontist told me that had they passed on the details of the emergency nature I would have been seen next day.
Took him 2 minutes to finish the last 1.5 teeth.
Second advice - take an active interest in your status and know if you need to try for a more urgent appointment.
As to the first guy... it was put in my file to never see him again and a few months later the rumour is my dentist stopped using him.
