Hi Folks,


As I promised I have written my report on wisdom teeth removal. Its been since January I have to get them out but I’ve been postponing the date until August, where I have some days off.

I already had one tooth removed back in 2002 and it wasn’t exactly a nice experience. I was to get them removed last Friday but in fact the dentist just wanted to see how things were since he was a surgeon my dentist refeered me to. He also wanted to send me an antibiotic so I could take before the operation to prevent any infection!
Here is the chronicle of this day.

9:00 am:

Time to wake up. Only 3 and a half hours left for the big moment . I wasn’t too nervous. After all ,there are much worse things that can happen in life.

10:30 am:

Time for breakfast. As I won’t be able to eat solid stuff for a while, I took a copious meal .
Mmmm

My mom drove me to Geneva and my dad was there to accompany. We left at quarter to 12 and the ride took about half an hour . There was quite a lot of traffic going on since that was the time people were off to lunch.
We parked the car right next to the point where the lake becomes the rhone river again

I waited 10 minutes and every second was longer and longer as I wanted to get through this as quickly as possible. The dentist’s ssistant finally told me I could come.

So there I went , a bit nervous indeed.
Here are pics of the room I got my tooth extracted and the view outside

12:45 pm

The dentist came and he prepared everything.He was going to take away two teeth. The upper and lower one on the left side. He started by putting anaesthesia around the lower tooth, told me to rinse and then he started putting around the upper tooth. The upper wisdom tooth hadn’t yet come out and was still under the gum. Thus this would require a bit more anesthesia since he would have to incise the gum.
He waited 5 minutes the time the anesthaesia made effect.

1:00 pm

And off he went! It was much less painful and much easier to take away than the one 4 years ago. Alittle effort and away it was! He made some stitches and it was done.
Now it was time to attack the second tooth.
He started by incising the gum but fortunately the anesthesia made a good effect. He then tried to remove the tooth but it was harder than he tought. He had to make a hole with a drill and I can tell you, I JUST DON’T like that noise...arrgggh.
Finally after 15 minutes it was all over and he stitched.

1:30 pm

The operation was finally over! I had to wait 5 minutes to make sure the bleeding had become less important

Whilst I was in the car I felt the anesthesia was fading away so I took my first pain killers . I was impatient to get home!
After 25 minutes there I was and first thing I did was put a cold pack on my cheek. The worst was that the only fact of talking hurt big time

I was quite hungry by then so I ate some jelly with Ice cream, which I guess I will be having quite a lot of these days

hope you’ve liked my little report. I’ll be giving you more news of how everything goes. So far I am writing with a cold pack on my left cheek cause the pain is still present.

Have a nice day

Only two teeth? Already under the gum and not still embedded in the bone? Lightweight...  Wink Try eight teeth, four still in the bone, all at once, under local anesthesia, 2-1/2 hours in the chair.

Nah. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.  crazy 

Take it easy, kid. Remember not to rinse too frequently, because that will remove clots and cause you to continue bleeding.



Up, up and away!

I had all 4 taken out at once. They gave me an IV and I was totally knocked out the whole time.

All in all it wasnt nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. Very little pain and swelling. The worst part was not being able to chew anything for 3-4 days.

I had my extractions done with in-office general sedation. I was "concieous" but not aware of anything. One moment I feel the medication going up my arm and the next I'm walking to the recovery bed.

Is that the one under the shopping arcade at the railway station?

removed back in 2002 and it wasn’t exactly a nice experience

well, visits to those doctors  Wink do NOT figure among the desirable moments in life, but are both necessary and inavoidable ! and the removal of those wisdom-teeths as far as I remember was just a minor thing and overcome within a few hours, no comparison to circumcision (age 10) or surgery on the head-surface after being hit by a colleague in school (age 17) and other such niceties ..........
