Surgical removal of impacted lower left wisdom tooth:
Being a naturally nervous person and with low tolerance for pain, I've been dreading to have this operation for a while. My first dentist strongly advised me to have IV sedation but it cost a lot more so I tried looking for another clinic and found Winning Smiles on this site. I've just sent them a picture of my XRay and was able to schedule immediately.
As for the operation itself, Dra. Marion found out that I have inflammation on the said tooth and told me that it would probably hurt more than normal. But luckily, she continued the procedure which thank God, allowed me to just get this over with. Even with the local anesthesia, there's still minimal pain during the surgery but she explained that it's because the pus (?) have countereffect with the anesthesia and they just needed to inject a few more times during the procedure. I was a bit panicky and nervous all through out the procedure but Dra. Marion was very patient and has a calming presence.
Days after and I only had a minimal cheek swelling but the overall pain was manageable with the mefanamic and antibiotic. I was also able to eat normal diet since they only remove the wisdom teeth in the left side (the upper was also removed per advice to avoid future pain and inflammation).
After a week, Dra. Marion removed the stitches and I also had my cleaning then.
Overall, it was a lot better than what I've expected even without considering the inflammation. It was a bit longer though, more than one hour or almost two, but I think that was because I have a difficult case.
Clean and simple clinic. There's only two of them there, the dentist Dra. Marion and her assistant and both of them were nice and welcoming.
