Avatar n tn However, get consulted to your dentist as there may be many potential risks of wisdom tooth extraction and it must be reviewed with your dentist.
88793 tn?1290227177 here in the U.S. most simple wisdom teeth removals are done with ga and sometimes a little gas just for relaxation not to knock you out. even more complicated procedures like impacted wisdom teeth rarely require a hospital. being completely sedated is more risky than just being numbed up. i only had two wisdom teeth come in (top only) and yes after they were pulled under ga in the regular office i walked a mile home!
Avatar f tn I am 24 years old and was referred to an oral surgeon for my wisdom teeth extraction. All four wisdom teeth are impacted, the top two have erupted through the skin, but the bottom two have not come through yet. The oral surgeon informed never once mentioned bone grafting- until I got to the counter and the recptionist was putting together the treatment plan- and then it was mentioned that it was recommended to have bone grafting done after the extraction of the bottom two wisdom teeth.
Avatar f tn A mild swelling may occur in many cases. Here I found information on wisdom teeth ( www.webdentist.
Avatar n tn The TMJ symptoms could be related to trauma from the surgery and is one of the risks involved with extraction of wisdom teeth. You should have your dentist or the oral surgeon thoroughly examine you jaw joints.
Avatar n tn I am assuming that these were wisdom teeth. I am also assuming that x-rays were taken before the teeth were extracted.If this was the case I don't think there is anything to worry about. If not I would consider getting another opinion.
Avatar m tn I am 34 and have a ton of crowding in my bottom teeth. I was unable to have my lower wisdom teeth removed 5 years ago because of the risk of oral nerve damage. I was told that I had a 99% chance of having permanent nerve damage so they would only remove the uppers which I had done.
Avatar f tn I think the problem is with your wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth might be pushing all of your teeth in due to its growing sideways. This is causing a block and nerve damage. This ight has caused you a feel of sensitivity. Get your wisdom teeth removed.
Avatar f tn Hello. I am a 24 year old, gay male. I had two impacted wisdom teeth removed about a month and a half ago. One of them left an extraction hole behind. By now, the hole has closed up and the tissue is nice and pink, but still soft. Do I need to wait until the tissue is hard again to give oral sex or am I ok to do that now? I know that the risk of dry socket has long passed, but I am more worried about STI risk.
Avatar f tn I WENT TO THE DENTIST YESTERDAY, THEY EXTRACT MY WISDOM TEETH BUT A SMALL PART WAS LEFT INSIDE IT HURTS A LITTLE I'M REALLY CONCERN ABOUT THAT THE DENTIST SAID THAT IT WAS NORMAL BUT I NEED A SECOND OPINION PLEASE HELP ME HE ALSO HIT ME WITH SOMETHING AND NOW I HAVE A LOT OF TROBLE SWALLOWING WHAT I NEED TO DO
Avatar m tn My dentist said one of my back tooth was a bit weak and that they will need to check it up every 6 months. Well it hurts every once in awhile, but I can't have it checked because I have camp. The inner tooth hurts. I did have my wisdom teeth taken out about 2 and a half weeks ago, could that be the problem? I don't remember MAYBE my tooth hurt even before the wisdom teeth extraction.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering with a pain in the left eye cheek and jaw for the last 25 years. I just been for a private consultation and told I have to live with the pain. 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Tempoporamandubluar joint disorder. I would be grateful if anyone has experienced a similar problem and would be grateful for any help from anyone who is experiencing similar problems...
Avatar m tn After researching I am little concern about the side of extraction. The gums in front of the extraction (teeth 18,19, 20) are bleeding when I floss, and when I put pressure on them with my finger. There is also a slight pain as well. Is this normal? Or is this an infection of some sort?

Avatar m tn I had my wisdom tooth(2) removed 6 days ago. my lower left lip and a few teeth are still feeling numb currently. is this numbness going to be temporary or permanent?
Avatar f tn Hi, most people have the wisdom teeth removed as tend to cram other teeth as we age. Not a big deal as you can have all 4 taken out at the same setting.
Avatar f tn I am having surgery tomorrow to get them extracted, however I am scared that the wisdom teeth may not be the cause of the daily migraines I have been enduring. Is it possible for wisdom teeth to cause that much pain? Also, is it normal for an oral surgeon to extract a wisdom tooth while infected without antibiotic treatment first? What are the complications and/or possibilities of this?
Avatar n tn I am getting a antibiotic for my gums. They hurt like hell. I can't stand the pain anymore I know how you feel. I don't think mine has anything to do with my wisdom teeth though. See if there is a antibiotic. :) Goodluck and sorry if this was not helpful enough.
Avatar f tn So I have an dentist appt on Friday and they will take out my wisdom teeth having to sedate me And take x-rays. Is this okay for the baby at 5 weeks?
Avatar m tn Dear Patient Yes, if you do have TMJ dysfunction extraction of the wisdom teeth could exacerbate the problem. Let the oral surgeon know, sometimes they will use a prop which will allow you to bite on it and at the same time not have you stretch to far open. Secondly the x-ray you had done probably was a Panorex x-ray which I would not consider as a proper x-ray for diagnosing TMJ dysfunction. In order for a proper diagnosis of your TMJ condition I would recommend seeing a TMJ expert.
Avatar m tn And an idiot me I had forgotten to ask him if it was due to the extraction of the wisdom teeth. And now before I came across this I did some research about it and I have found alot of things of people having the same problems with the dislocating jaw. But my absolute main question is this due to the extraction of the wisdom teeth?? Like from opening my mouth a little too wide that they done damage??? As the surgeon said himself my teeth were the most difficult he had encountered removing.
Avatar f tn I agree that general anesthesia can definitely cause greater risks. The IV sedation that oral surgeons typically use is more of a "twilight sleep" sedation rather than "full-blown" general anesthesia that is used for surgeries in a hospital - and that's one reason that you usually do not require the ET tube for ventilation. The twilight sleep sedation is also very often used for things such as colonoscopies.
9671341 tn?1443128711 Since the green mucus is appearing from the wisdom teeth extraction hole, there is a good likelihood that you are affected by some sort of teeth infection. This infection may not have necessarily arisen as a result of the teeth extraction process. If you have any decayed tooth, this may have caused green mucus to form in the wisdom tooth socket.

Avatar f tn I don't see any problem with using the Advair. As always, be careful with how you use it but inhaling Advair should not be a problem after the first 24-48 hours. Also, when we mention to be careful when spitting or sucking through a straw, I believe that generates more pressure in the oral cavity than the use of Advair. I haven't personally used it but it doesn't seem to be as intense.
