    Default Wisdom teeth removal?

    Hey I had 2 wisdom teeth taken out in the chair a week ago under local anesthetic, procedure wasn't bad in itself but it did take him a prolonged time to get one in particular out, all up it took 2 hours and he ended up having to leave 1 root in there as he couldn't get it out.

    I am still in pain, nurofen isn't doing anything, I've used up all the nurofen plus I had and that wasn't working too well either. I've had my jaw adjusted by my chiro yesterday which has improved it a little bit but nurofen is still not doing much.

    I'm not really into popping all these pain meds and I am just wondering if it is normal to still be in pain a week later? It's right in where my lower jaw joins my upper jaw so I think it's from having my mouth open that wide for so long?

    This happened to my DF too. It was a dry socket and required antibiotics

    I've made an appointment to see the dentist again tomorrow morning, she doesn't think it is dry socket more likely that the infection I had 2 weeks ago has returned as I couldn't take both lots of antibiotics.

    I had 4 impacted teeth taken out all at once under anaesthetic and I was in pain for a month. Nothing was wrong it just all hurt. I usually have a really high pain tolerance, but that was horrible

    Hi I'm looking at getting 2 wisdom teeth removed as they're causing a tremendous amount of pain. I was wondering how long you had to wait to get them removed & how much it costs if you dont have PHI?

    Hi pusheen I had 2 taken out ad it cost me $38 with my private health, only had to wait a few days but I travelled to a branch that wasnt my closest to get it done. Without phi at the company I saw it would of cost around 1.5K.
