- Wisdom teeth out tomorrow – a bit worried
I had a choice – two at a time at the dentist on local or all four in the hospital on general. No brainer for me
First consultant I saw wanted to knock me out for it, so went to see another instead who agreed there was no point having the risk of a general if not required. I think they're more gentle when you're awake 🙂Posted 8 years agoPiefaceMember
Its definitely the apprehension thats the worst, then the advice to avoid hot food, drinks and alcohol for 24 hrs.
Tried eating some grapes earlier, despite no pain i didn't want to chew anything as I wanted to keep the clots intact.
I've eaten too much soup and yoghurt today. Looking forward to mushy weetabix tomorrow. Not looking forward to brushing my teeth.Posted 8 years agoChristowkidMember
I know what you mean. I couldn't face brushing my teeth for a few days just in case I accidentally brushed the healing gum. Then only minced around it. i think it was a week before i brushed properly.Posted 8 years ago
You'll feel better tomorrow after some food and getting back into a normal routine. Also don't forget – you're pretty drained now after all that apprehension and adrenaline rush of the event.
Just relax, you'll be fine!
