I had my consult with my new oral surgeon today. I’m terrified by the idea of having my wisdom teeth removed and even going to the consult was rough.
After sitting down with my new doctor, I feel so much better. ☺
He explained the procedure and what to expect. There’s nothing even remotely complicated about my procedure. I was worried about the impaction but he said it’s not a problem.
My top two teeth will take less than 5 minutes each and the impacted one will take about 10 minutes.
I’ll benefit from general anesthesia, so I’ll be completely asleep and will wake up after it’s all over with. I’ll be asleep for a total of about 40 minutes all together and that’s it. I should be in and out of the office in about an hour.
I won’t have to worry about antibiotics afterwards because I’ll receive IV antibiotics, as well as anti-nausea meds.
While I’m not excited about this, I feel loads better about the process.
As I mentioned before, we’re planning this around Lizze’s stuff in Cleveland and so we’re looking at about a month, maybe two before I’ll have this done. There’s no rush and I just need to schedule it about a week before I’m ready.
I feel incredibly blessed to have figured this out and for the that, I’m grateful. ☺
