Wisdom tooth removal at Guys hospital
Hi I have a question, has anyone had their wisdom tooth removed recently at guys hospital?
I saw a dentist and he has sent a referal off to Guys for me as my wisdom tooth is under the gum and in awkward place so he said I would be better off having it done at guys, I had the others out years ago at a dentist, my last I was put under IV sedation I think its called which suited me as I am very nervous and know its very painful if you are awake anyway, as my first one I was awake and in the dentist chair hour and half and I collapsed when I came out, never again.
I have a bottom one to come out and dentist said it could be causing infection thats why the pain.
My questions are this?
From the dentist letter, how long will I wait before my first appointment at the hospital for this?
How long after that will I wait again until I actually have it out?
I do hope its not a situation where you go for this and that apppointment at hospitals where it ends up getting dragged out all the time, you know what I mean, when you think, are they ever going to do this or just talk about it, seeing this consultant and that consultant.
Any info useful?
Plus I am going to request they put me out to as I cant be awake going thru all that pain again,
I do have hypertension and thyroid disease which is controlled my meds, I hope this wont put them off sedating me, especially the hypertention, I mean, lets be honest here, its not them going thru it all is it really. The pain of having the thing pulled out.
Because my tooth is under the gum not even come thru at all, could only see it on Xray and its right next to my other normal tooth as well.
I guess the proper question would be, what is the entire precedure from when hospital receive letter from dentist there after?
