The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 23-year-old male asked:
It depends: There are wide variety of oral surgery procedures. Some can be done under local anesthesia. Your doctor would simply inject your tooth or region and have the tooth removed. There are other procedures that are more complicated and you might need to be sedated or asleep under general anesthesia. You would need someone to accompany you for those procedures.
A 18-year-old male asked:
Call the office: an elevated body temperature might occur during the first day or two. Be sure to have him drink plenty of fluids and get out of bed to walk around two or three times a day. If fever persists you need to call the surgeon's office. If there is to increase the dose of any meds also consult with the prescribing doctor.
A 25-year-old female asked:
Infection: Swelling and pain on one side of the face is an indication of an infection. Untreated it could become life threatening. Call you dentist ASAP.
