Know Before, During and After the Procedure
isdom teeth removal should only be entrusted to a professional
oral surgeon. The procedure is not the usual teeth extraction you
know. Hence, it is necessary that you know everything you expect
before, during and after the procedure.
Before Wisdom Teeth Removal
First, you need to personally speak with your oral surgeon and talk to him or
her about the entire process during the appointment:
●Discuss any health issues you have
●Let the surgeon know about drugs you take recently or on a regular or
usual basis (vitamins, supplements and the like)
●List down all questions you have about wisdom teeth removal and
make sure to get clear response
●Discuss the type of anaesthesia you prefer; you can choose to either
be asleep during the procedure or just numb
●Finalise the schedule of the wisdom teeth removal
●It is recommended that you schedule time off from school or work to
have the surgery healed and rested. It is best that you arrange pet
care, child care and a ride home during Wisdom Teeth Removal. The
wisdom teeth removal usually takes 45 minutes or sometimes faster.
The type of anaesthesia you might get may be any of the following:
The surgeon will numb your entire mouth with a shot of anaesthesia in
your gums. Breathing laughing gas or nitrous oxide can also be used
as an option to relax or doze you off while on surgery. Alertness can
be achieved just in a brief time.
This option will make your mouth numb and gives you a drug through
a vein into your arm to put you in a drowsy state. You might feel
sleepy or sleep entirely during the entire procedure.
You will either be asked to breathe gas through a mask or get drugs
through your vein. You will be sleeping the entire wisdom teeth
removal and will wake up probably after an hour or right after the
The surgeon may need to cut your bone or gums to get the teeth out. If this
is the case, he or she will stitch the wounds so it will heal faster. The stitches
will dissolve or melt after a few days. The surgeon may use gauze pads in
the mouth to absorb some of your blood.
After Wisdom Teeth Removal
The response of anaesthesia differs to everyone. Some can drive home right
after the wisdom teeth removal, but some cannot. It is best advised that you
ask someone else to drive you home and start your recovery.
Some may have little pain; others may experience no pain after the wisdom
teeth removal. You might have mild discomfort and swelling for two days or
so and needs weeks to recover completely. Make sure to follow your doctor’s
instructions on the medications you should take and things you can and
cannot do that may impact your recovery.
