No change: Your shower routine should have no effect on your wisdom tooth surgery. You may want to stay away from the hot shower several days after surgery just to lower the chance of excessive bleeding. As always get advice from your surgeon.

Continue the routine: The hot shower treatment should not have any impact on the removal of your wisdom teeth.

Follow instructions: If you have been scheduled to have general anesthesia for your surgery it is essential that you do not eat or drink anything for 8 hours before surgery, but other activities are permitted. Be sure to closely follow your oral surgeon's instructions. Good luck!
