I'm 19, athlete. Had wisdom teeth removed a few days ago and as they were waking me up from the iv sedation, HR was high- about 115-120. Why is that?

I'm 19, athlete. Had wisdom teeth removed a few days ago and as they were waking me up from the iv sedation, HR was high- about 115-120. Why is that?

Elevated HR: Unlikely that this is any cause for concern. When waking up from any anesthesia/conscious sedation there is some “adrenaline” release increasing HR. Local numbing medication used by dentists usually contains epinephrine which is a stimulant that is absorbed and leads to elevated heart rates. A heart rate of 115-120 is likely just a fast normal heart rhythm or what is called sinus tachycardia. Read more

Is it painful to get wisdom teeth pulled with only nitrous and novocaine and no IV sedation?

Is it painful to get wisdom teeth pulled with only nitrous and novocaine and no IV sedation?

No.: I routinely use only local anesthetic. The reasons for using IV sedation are anxiety/pain control, administration of steroids to control swelling and, possibly, for access to a vein for administration of emergency drugs if the patient has health complications. Nitrous controls anxiety and offers some pain control. The real control of pain and anxiety is informed consent and local anesthesia. Read more

I only have 2 wisdom teeth in. My oral surgeon won't let me have just a local & laughing gas. He says I need to go under IV sedation. Why is this?

I only have 2 wisdom teeth in. My oral surgeon won't let me have just a local & laughing gas. He says I need to go under IV sedation. Why is this?

Informed consent: Goose - it seems that you missed a critical part of your consultation: understanding how difficult your two wisdom teeth may be to remove. Without understanding this from your surgeon, you can't make an intelligent choice of anesthetic. Go back and ask why he recommends IV sedation and any other? 's you now have. You need to be better informed to consent to your surgery. Read more

Wisdom teeth removal: local anesthetic, sedation, or general anesthesia? Which one is better?

Wisdom teeth removal: local anesthetic, sedation, or general anesthesia? Which one is better?

Depends: Local anesthetic is always the safest. However, for healthy people, anesthesia procedures in an oral surgeon's office is statistically very safe. Most surgeons use a deep sedation or general anesthetic technique. In my office, general anesthesia is preferred because I can use medications that are short acting and make you feel good and alert instead of nauseated and sleepy afterwards. Read more
