Wisdom tooth extraction under sedation

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth extraction under sedation


382218 tn?1341185087 When something unexpected happens I would rather be unaware of it until later. Erupted wisdom tooth extraction is a lot easier. Mine were impacted, lying sideways in the gum. I've never regretted the decision to be completely out of it. Then again, the older I get the more I hate the dentist. If I could nap while they do a cleaning, I would - gladly.
1030433 tn?1252288029 Each experience is different depending on the complexity of the extraction. If you are going to have it done under sedation, it may make more sense to get them all out at once. You will probably be pretty sore for the first week and it should gradually improve throughout that first week. I would probably avoid going to work the first day as the sedation may cause some nausea and feeling of "blah" as you said. You may need someone you trust to drive you there and back as well.
1354136 tn?1331878917 going in on friday to get an upper wisdom tooth pulled. can't afford the sedation so just opting for a local. never had a tooth pulled before, hopefully i'll be fine? tooth is already out of gumline. any insight would be appreciated, just nervous here. thanks.
Avatar n tn Today I noticed a cavity in the right lower wisdom tooth. How bad of a procedure would it be to remove 2-4 wisdom teeth? I had them exrayed once-- at least 2 were impacted, if I remember correctly. Can I be COMPLETELY under when the procedure is done? I am absolutely HORRIFIED of dental surgery. Had a root canal done several years ago-- good dentist, but it was HORRIBLE. I can't be awake during another procedure like that.
Avatar n tn I am really nervous about my surgery tomorrow. My dentist had attempted a root canal Dec 17th, however she could not get the area of the tooth to freeze, tried again a week later (after being on antibiotics now for two weeks) and still could not get it to freeze. She actually had another dentist come in and try to freeze, but no luck. So I needed to make an appointment for my wisdom teeth to be removed and my dentist gave me two options.
Avatar f tn Hi. Grateful for advice/thoughts. I had my bottom right wisdom tooth extracted under intra-venous sedation 8 days ago. It seemed to go fine. No stitches. On day 3 after the op., I had a dull throbbing pain and grim taste with bad breath, so I went to see my referring dentist on Day 4 (not the one who did the procedure as he's a long drive away).
11639155 tn?1420066015 I'm so glad I didn't have to have more than one pulled but now I don't have the very back teeth on the upper and lower right side of my mouth because last year I had to have the upper back tooth removed I don't think it was a wisdom tooth not sure if I even grew one in up top.
Avatar f tn I had several teeth extracted including some wisdom teeth under an IV sedation a few days ago (Friday April 15th) Today i noticed there is a sharp point poking almost out through my gum near my cheek in one of the molars he extracted. It is really sore and on top of the stitches causing me pain it's really hurting my gum to eat on that side of my mouth. I am really worried something is seriously wrong with this extraction, because every other extraction is fine.
Avatar n tn Discuss with your anesthesiologist what type of anesthesia are they palnning - local / topical / general (rare for a tooth extraction). Also tell him about your being anxious and see if he prescribes you an antianxiety medication like alprazolam for one or two days before the extraction. Discussion in detail with your attending anesthesiologist should surely put your mind to ease.Also discuss about the post operative pain killers that need to be taken. Goodluck.
Avatar m tn 1st successful IV sedation surgery was enacted for impacted infected wisdom tooth extracted by Oral Surgeon. 2nd successful IV sedation Hospital surgery was enacted for restoration of vision to one eye in early 2014. 3rd successful IV sedation hospital surgery was enacted last Spring, by Vein Surgeon for dual leg vnus closure vein surgery.
Avatar m tn I pinpointed pain to #32 which was a wisdom tooth I didn't have extracted as a kid.(Goonos, you may be interested in this) It had been capped many years ago and didn't show a crack or other problem. More x-rays (thanks to the inventors of digital x-ray technology} showed what appeared to be infection under tooth. My dentist gave me a choice of extraction or root canal/draining of infection with the risk of the latter choice maybe not fixing the problem long term.
Avatar n tn I'm used to the dr.s not caring! The molar I had pulled was the one next to the wisdom tooth (all my wisdom teeth have been pulled years ago). Please let me know how it goes for you. Thanks for replying.
Avatar f tn My guess is this could have been caused by dental procedures that I had shortly before all of this began back in 08'. I had a wisdom tooth pulled in a particularly violent extraction (particles of bone were coming out of the site for weeks afterwards, it took forever to heal). I know this is rare, and when I mentioned it to my dentist he was fairly smug about it and "had only seen a few cases of this happening in all his 40 years of dentistry".
230262 tn?1316649534 It helps a lot with circulation. Pillows under your lower back and under your arms are great too. I also suggest a warm pack of some sort for neck support - it is also, I find, soothing for people. Lastly, a blanket may help you to feel more comfortable and secure. There are a lot of different styles of dental chairs and hopefully the office that you are going to has a comfortable chair for this type of procedure.
Avatar f tn The decision to remove the implant has been postponed for now. He numbed the area and then used some instruments to scrape under the tooth abutment and put some medication (tetracycline) in the area. Right now it does feel better, though it does not explain the other systemic issues that have been ongoing. Also, what he did was something I asked for, as he does not see any sign of irritation or infection in the implant area.
Avatar n tn I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree). The doctor prescribed Augmentin due to the remaining swollen glands and remaining flu like symptoms. On April 16th, I had tingling in my hands and feelings of pure exhaustion.
Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter, 19, had her wisdom teeth out a few weeks ago. She was given vicodin 50, 1-2 every 4-6 as needed for pain. She found 1 was not enough and was taking 2 every 6 hours. She ended up with complications and an extended recovery and pain, so the Dr. gave her a new script. We asked for 75 as 50 wasn't working and 2 x 50 (100) was too much, making her really high and sleepy.

But I never found blood pressure machines unnerving. Many things that were unnerving I got used to such as weekly bloodtests from Clozaril (which I was on years ago). After a while they were just a fact of life and I would get them once a week and head off to work. As for blood pressure I have a blood pressure machine. I was on Atenolol for a while (to control e.p.s.
