Dynamite combination I don’t remember Much of it at all little bits and pieces Of it but very very straightforward it Wasn’t Scary at all so for most nervous Patients this combination works really Well which is the laughing gas and the Oral sedation tablet there are more Advanced forms of sedation out there you Can have IV sedation and something Called general anesthesia which is Essentially when you get put out for Surgery if you do have a significant Infection around your wisdom tooth or Actually in your wisdom tooth the Dentist may recommend antibiotics in the Meantime until they do get you back for The extractions this will just prevent Any infection spreading from the tooth If it comes around the tooth to the face Now here’s the words of the wise make Sure that you don’t get fooled by a False sense of security because what’s Gonna happen is that after you start Taking the antibiotics you’re gonna feel Amazing a lot of people do not all the Time but if you do it doesn’t mean that The infection is gone it just means that The pressure from the infection has been Mitigated temporarily such that you’re Not experiencing so much pain and more But it will come back and oftentimes It’s even worse than the first time as For the second appointment here’s what’s

Most people who are sedated don’t really Remember that part it’s more so if You’re just planning on doing it with Dental freezing alone you may notice That your jaw gets a little sore during The procedure and that there are some Noticeable vibrations in We’re gonna talk about how to care for Yourself after the procedure number one You want to make sure you remember that You’ve just had minor surgery and it’s Okay to be kind to yourself for the next Few days you don’t want to hit the gym The next day and do your one rep max Because that’s just not smart you need To heal you need to recover and just Chill if you’re having sedation just Make sure you have someone organized to Pick you up afterwards as you will be in No condition to drive you’ll be bleeding And out of it and if you try to drive Home would be worse than drunk driving For sure so don’t do it Smoking increases your chances of having Significant problems especially with Regards to dry socket it’s a condition Where the socket fails to heal after the Wisdom tooth is taken out and is Extremely extremely painful you want to Avoid it at all costs as if it does Start to hurt and you get the dry socket Pain no type of analgesic seems to work So what I mean by that is if you throw Advil tylenol threes whatever at it

Doesn’t really cut the pain instead you Actually need to come in to the dentist Again and have him pack a medicine Inside the socket and that seems to be The only way to relieve the pain Predictably next you would just want to Make sure you avoid any suction in the Mouth so don’t drink through a straw and If you need to sneeze you want to sneeze With your mouth open the reason we do This is that negative pressure in the Mouth or suction can dislodge the blood Clot if strong enough and that can Interfere with healing last but not Least just with respect to your diet you Want to make sure that you are not Having things with seeds in them because That can get caught in the sockets and Result in infections or just increased Inflammation if you liked this video Make sure to subscribe for more I got a Ton coming we have procedure videos Filmed through a surgical operating Microscope that are really cool so you Essentially get to see what I see when I’m doing a procedure at very high Magnifications and then we also have Videos on how to get yourself into Really good habits with respect to your Oral care for example if you want to get Into flossing how do you do that for the Rest of your life as opposed to for the Next week of January and then forget About it for the rest of the year
