Crawley Emergency Dentist Explains Wisdom Tooth Surgery Post-Op Care


On a scale of 1 to 10, wisdom tooth surgery—minus the anaesthesia—might as well get an 11. The delicate procedure requires cutting away some gum tissue to get to the tooth and remove the whole thing. Sedation dentistry can, fortunately, bring down the pain level to almost zero.

Say you’ve made it through the operation; the worst is over, right? Maybe, but your ordeal still continues. Dental experts say the pain can spike six to ten hours after the operation, well beyond the effective duration of any known dental sedative. Even lorazepam, one of the most potent sedatives in dentistry, only lasts up to eight hours.
