Wisdom teeth removal horror stories

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth removal horror stories


Avatar f tn Hi there, Penda: It's really scary to know you're having surgery and not know what to expect. Especially when there are so many horror stories on this forum. I honestly think that for every negative experience with gallbladder removal (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), there are probably 10 positive ones that you rarely hear about. The surgery is minor as far as pain. With the pain you've been suffering up until now, you can handle it easily.
Avatar n tn I have afib and take sotalol and digoxin. I am scheduled to have my wisdom teeth out w/ conscious sedation. They will use either versed or propafol. My cardiologist is not concerned, nor is the oral surgeon, but I am - I have read that both of these drugs can cause palpatations. Of course, I petrified of going into afib. In 6 years I have only had 2 episodes, but I do occasionally feel missed beats..... I'm confident stress causes it - as a matter of fact, I'm positive.
Avatar m tn Impacted wisdom tooth might be serious at any stage, so you may consider about removal of wisdom teeth. Wisdom tooth can cause some risky dental issues such as pericoronitis, tooth decay, gum disease, periapical infection, etc. Also it can damage the structure of the jawbone. So, don’t delay and contact dentist as soon as possible. Treatment: • Extraction of wisdom tooth. • Radiotherapy. • Reconstruction surgery for impacted jawbone.
Avatar n tn Post-op discomfort after wisdom teeth removal may last weeks. Wisdom teeth are frequent occlusal interference. It's common patients feel the jaw position or bite is different after wisdom teeth removal. This is probably what you described " misaligned". If you do'nt have temporomandibular disorder, the bite will be realigned after a couple of weeks. If you do have tmd problems, seeing a tmj specialist is advised.
198506 tn?1251156915 Having said that, I am very resistant to the idea of having my wisdom teeth pulled (too many horror stories from older adults like me who have had it done). Especially since I am not in pain. I will discuss it with the dentist and see what he has to say.
Avatar f tn Any wisdom teeth experiences or words of advice would help. Also if anyone has taken halcion for wisdom teeth removal let me know.
Avatar m tn I have but mine is with any thing that is salt! i had mine taken out in 08' and they left chipped peices of tooth still in there. right afterwards well the doc said it was the stiches. well two days later i had to dig the chipped peices out! and what not!
1550634 tn?1296568028 The pressure feeling may be coming from the movement of the teeth. Its normal to have some pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth as they come out. Try some over the counter pain medication such as Tylenol or Motrin (whatever you would take for headaches that's safe for you) and see if that helps. I took my 4 wisdom teeth out with an oral surgeon and I was put asleep. Didn't remember a thing.
Avatar f tn Be absolutely certain you've gleaned all the information and knowledge available ( and there's a ton out there ) about complications that can arise from wisdom teeth extractions. Alas, I did not investigate fully ( accepting only my oral surgeons view ) and am paying the price for that neglect. There ARE other options. Interestingly enough there's even a segment of dental medicine that advocates NO wisdom teeth extractions except under the most extreme circumstances. Please...
1757114 tn?1312651561 Normally people removes their wisdom teeth just for the growth for other teeth. Wisdom teeth has no function in our dental structure. So I suggest you meet your dentist to remove your wisdom teeth.
1847035 tn?1327274923 okay, so question. I need my wisdom teeth removed badly. I think my ortho should have let me remove them before I got my braces. well now no braces but bad hurting wisdom teeth. :( my question is what should I do?
Avatar f tn Contact your dentist and tell him about your dental issue. It is always recommended to get your wisdom teeth removed, as it comes out with no alignment defined. If your dentist recommends removing your wisdom tooth, then go ahead. Yes!
Avatar m tn My dentist also said in my case the TMJ disorder is not too severe so he recommended me undergo the wisdom teeth removal only if the problem gets too difficult to manage. Thank you Dr.Sharma.
Avatar m tn I have had the same thing. It's been more than a year after my wisdom teeth were removed, though. Are you still having this issue?
