PostSubject: Wisdom Teeth   Thu Mar 10, 2011 7:37 pm

I'm having my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow morning and I am sitting here making myself sick just thinking of it.. affraid

Does anyone have any advice on how to make things easier after the surgery? I don't think I can survive on eating jello and pudding for much longer than a day.. I'm also supposed to work on Saturday and thinking about that isn't helping my situation either.. Yikes

I take it you're getting all of them removed at once. My husband took Ibuprofen before he went in and had conscious sedation; so though he was awake, he wasn't really aware of anything. That meant he had to have someone drive him there and home, but other than being a bit sore for a few days afterwards he was fine.

I think they sent him home with painkillers, but he didn't use them after the first day. It's important to make sure you rinse your mouth several times a day with salt water.

Good luck.

You should be fine...just don't lay flat for about a week. Yes, salt water.....and don't drink with straws til the holes are healed. That one was hard for me because I don't drink anything without using a straw.
It will be fine....

Thanks everyone. I am having all 4 removed as the oral surgeon said it is better that way. I have also read that the older you are, the harder it is. I am 30 and that seems to be considered "old" for having them removed.. I guess the worst part of it for me is this constant worry and sick feeling I've had in my stomach all day.. By this time tomorrow it will be over and done with.. Gotta keep thinking positive...

I don't remember how old the hubby was exactly, but probably close to 30 if not past it when he had his removed. I think once it's done you'll feel much better.

I was 22, had a 1 yr old. SO while he was getting his teeth I was giving up mine. I remember him patting my arm as I lay half awake in my recliner. He got spoiled that week by his grandparents.

I had my lower ones removed when I was in my 40's......no problem, except right afterwards.....couldn't feel anything and wasn't sure if the soup I was eating was actually going in my mouth or down my face......Make sure you gargle, gargle, gargle....you do NOT want dry sockets!!!! Gargle after having anything to eat.....keep them moist and clean...... Huh?

Do you feel nauseous after getting them done or throw up or anything?

I didn't feel nauseous afterwards at all. I, like Rhonda tried to drink some Mountain Dew right after I got home and ended up pouring it down my face. Not a good idea to try to eat or drink when you're still numb. Laughing

I only had to take 1 pain pill right after the anesthesia started to wear off. Also I have been rinsing with salt water at least 3-4 times a day. I'm still afraid to brush my teeth normally and eat anything solid. I think I will try to eat some solid food today, hopefully it will work out..
