My pre-op appointment is on the calendar, and the actual surgery is scheduled for September 5th. I'm a little worried (the pain, I suspect isn't horrible, but I do have a high tolerance for such things). I don't know what to expect; I ask my parents and they simply say I'll be fine. I'm at a loss as to what questions to ask~ feeling rather in the dark at this point... could anyone here enlighten me? I've heard some very daunting stories. Though the majority of my friends are overdramatic when it comes to Facebook. Haha. I really don't know who to believe, as I suppose everyone has different experiences. But a general outline of what goes on would bring me much relief.
Basically whatever you can tell me is appreciated. I don't have any outlying/specific points that are concerning me, so whatever you post is fine.
The surgery goes really fast, which is nice. You won't feel a thing during it. Afterward, they'll give you pain killers and probably antibiotics. Give yourself a couple days to lay around and eat soft food. Yogurt helps with any side-effects of antibiotics. After a week, you'll be much better. You'll have holes for a few months where the teeth used to be. That will heal and close up though, don't worry. They'll give you this little syringe to keep those washed out and clean.
The main thing is to just have soft food for afterward. It's not too bad.
I really can't offer you any help since I haven't had mine out (yet... will have to soon though DX)
The anesthesia they give you should knock you out pretty well for the actual surgery, and the painkillers afterwards should keep your mouth from hurting too much... eat lots of soft/cold foods (cold foods will help keep swelling down as well) and just do everything they tell you to do. Good luck!
I had mine out back in October. It really wasn't too bad.
Just stay on top of your pain meds, and you'll be fine.
Right after I got mine done, and went home, we weren't able to get my prescription for about an hour after, so, I started to feel the pain.
So, stay on top of your meds and you'll be fine.
Make sure to follow the instructions you're given, and avoid certain foods and using a straw, since that can cause dry sockets.
It sounds really scary. I was really worried about getting them out, but, it really wasn't bad, other than when I was late for meds.
Also, a note for the meds, make sure you're at home when you take them to see how you react to them.
I've always been one of those people who can take all these medications that are supposed to make you drowsy, like cough medicine and stuff, and it never makes me tired. In fact, most meds actually make me awake. So, I took the pain meds, and they really made me so tired.
(I'm also one of those people who refuses to take naps unless I'm super tired, or don't feel good).
So, despite me hating to take naps, everyday, for a week, or week and a half, I ended up taking naps after my meds because they made me so tired.
So, I'd certainly advise you to take it easy for the first couple days and see how the meds go. If they make you really tired, don't be afraid/embarrassed to take a nap.
I just had mine out in July. It really wasn't that bad. They'll give you and IV with medicine in it, and then you'll feel really light-headed. And the next thing you know, you'll be awake in the recovery room with gauze in your mouth. They'll probably give you painkillers and antibiotics. Make sure you keep you gums really clean. They'll probably also give you a little syringe to rinse with. If you don't rinse daily and brush your teeth, you'll get an infection. That's what happened to me, and it's not fun at all. They had to reopen it and dig around in there, and even though they made my mouth all numb it still hurt. Also, eat soft foods and put ice or heat on your face. I didn't really use ice or heat that much, and I ended up looking like a chipmunk. You'll probably also get bruising, but that goes away pretty quickly. I suggest taking it easy for the first few days, and making sure to get a lot of sleep. That's pretty much it! I hope I helped.
My wisdom teeth haven't been taken out yet, but I've had lots of other teeth pulled out, though. A few at a time, my permanent teeth were coming out over my baby teeth. They gave me a little shot in my mouth that made my mouth all numb. The shot hurt a little but I didn't feel a thing when they pulled the tooth out. I'm not sure if they do it the same way for wisdom teeth
