Has Anyone Had Their Wisdom Teeth Removed

Ask a Question

Has anyone on here already had their wisdom teeth removed?

Im in agony with my wisdom teeth and no matter how many times i ask the dentist they wont remove them.

Both my gums and face are swollen and can barley open my mouh to speak let alone eat or drink.

Can someone give me advice on how to go about getting them removed professionally as dentist wont do it.

I would go to your gp and ask to be refered to maxillofacial team at your local hospital. It is my understanding that most dentists will not do this surgery as it requires a general anesthetic and because of complication risks (I know some do). (this is what I was told by my dentist). I was in the opposite position to you. 3 years ago I got a gum infection above my bottom wisdom tooth on the left hand side of my mouth. both bottom sets are impacted but I don't really have issues with them. The dentist I saw wanted to refer me right then and there to the hospital to get them pulled out. I said no, but I was told if I have another infection there then I will have to have them out. I do get the odd bit of aching on the left hand side but that's it. I really don't want to have it done. Sounds like you need it badly. I go to the GP and ask to be refered to the hospital.

don't forget if you have the money, you can pay private to have those removed at your local private hospital. I know there is a waiting list to have these removed under the NHS.

chelseaturpin waiting list times vary depending on whereabouts you are in the UK. It was about a 6 month wait where I live. With private it could be done in a few weeks but it'll cost you, that's the problem.

Has the pain and swelling recently happened, over and above the normal discomfort. If so you could have an abscess and need antibiotics.

I feel for you. Pain from wisdom teeth can be awful. I hope you are able to get treatment via your GP.

I had a really back took growing at right angles, it was an extra tooth, and pushing my wisdom teeth. It was easy to get out, because I don't think you have as delicate nerves at the back, it's just we pull those out more than any other tooth, so it sounds more extreme.

Yes... Mine grown out side way... And after one week of suffering, eating antibiotics.. My face doubled. He twisted the teeth out.

But there is a risk to end up in the hospital if the dentist can not take it out.

Many years ago I had two of them out because of trouble, similar to your own (I do feel for you). My dentist said I would have to go to hospital but I refused and asked him to do it, because I had complete faith in him. He agreed to do one and then the other a week later - wouldn't do both together. I did get an infection in one of them which was easily solved with an antiseptic stick placed in the cavity. All over. The other two haven't put in an appearance yet! 🐞
