Of course, it is also highly important for you to prepare yourself before wisdom teeth removal surgery. In order to help you feel more confident for the extraction, here are a couple of tips from our expert oral surgeons.
1) Visit Our Oral Surgeon in Sydney for an Initial Consultation
When you come in for your first consultation at our wisdom teeth removal clinic in Sydney, you will be taken through a step-by-step process where you will be given tips on how to prepare for the procedure. You will also get information on what is going to happen during the surgery and some essential care tips that can't be ignored.
2) Do Not Eat Anything at Least 6 - 8 Hours Before The Scheduled Surgery
If you are going to get your third molars removed, it is imperative that you don't consume any food 6 -8 hours before your appointment. Most wisdom teeth removal procedures will require local or general anaesthesia. Anaesthetics could possibly make you nauseous and could cause you to vomit even when you are sedated. When this happens, your cough reflex, which is also sedated, won't be able to react and there is a risk that your lungs might accidentally inhale the contents of your vomit. This could cause damage to your lungs. Just remember to eat light food before your cut off time and make sure you inform our oral surgeon if you have had anything to eat beforehand.
3) Get Rest
Your teeth are part of the skeleton system, which is a part of the body. And just like any other component of the body, it needs to be well rested before any major surgeries. Plus, you need to prepare yourself mentally for the procedure as it might take a while to complete and you are going to need all the strength that you can get.
4) Prepare Post-Surgery Supplies
Make sure that you've got everything prepared beforehand so that you don't have to run about getting the items that you need for your recovery period. Get a soft toothbrush, ice packs, the recommended pain killers, and buy soft food that you can eat after the wisdom tooth extraction surgery.
5) Ask About Pricing
When you are with us, wisdom teeth removal cost is absolutely affordable. However, it’s good to know the full cost of the procedure so that you can plan you finances and secure the payment method that suits you best.
