Wisdom Teeth Removal at age 54

Sign in to follow this  


On September 22nd, 2016, I finally got my wisdom teeth removed.  I wish I had done this when I was younger, as when I was a teen, I didn't have high blood pressure or other issues.  In August my blood pressure at the oral surgeon's office was too high, so I had modify my diet, so it was in an acceptable range.  Early September it was acceptable, so I finally made an appointment.  I don't remember much that day. 

I remember taking a medication to sedate me.  When my friend arrived, I felt very tired.  I remember going into the Dr. Office, getting into the chair and having the IV put in my right hand.  I then remember being told I could go home and then I remember eating a chocolate Wendy's frosty.   I felt okay.  I slept very well.  I called my brother twice and didn't remember.  

I didn't have a lot of numbness in my face or lips and it went away very quickly.  I did have pain, some of it off and on that was bad.  

It will be 3 weeks tomorrow.  For several days I had soups and liquids and probably did so longer than I had to but I'm older.  I haven't yet started eating chewy, crunchy food or hard candy. 

I also haven't sip out of straw and will wait another week before doing so, again, probably longer than I had to.  

I was concerned about dry socket which is a very painful  if you have the misfortune of getting it.  Thankfully, I didn't get it.

Our daughter had them removed at 16.  She was out of it for a couple of days.  If you want to be amused, go on Youtube and search for wisdom tooth removal.  For some reason, parents and friends like to video the effects of the sedation and it IS hilarious, but it's also FOREVER once they upload it.  My worst day at the dentist was when I came home with more teeth than I arrived at the office with. :(

I had seen those videos and then and they are funny.  I was told by the friend that took me to the oral surgeon that I was very quiet, and didn't say anything which was good.
