Depends. Some go back to work the same day. Usually it would be prudent to be off at least a day for this surgery. It would also depend whether you had your surgery with a local anesthetic or got a a general anesthetic or conscious sedation. I would not push it and take care of yourself. Your dentist or oral surgeon should explain this to you carefully prior to the surgery. Discuss with your boss 1st!
1 to 3 days. Just a couple of days is usual.
1-3 Days. Depending on your age and other medical conditions as well as the complexity of the surgery is very determinant of how fast you'll go back to work. At 37 you'll heal slower than a 18 yo but you should be still heal relatively quickly. Usually 1-3 days is the time off work and of course how well you heal and tolerance to the procedure is also important in determining how long you'll be out of work.
Yes. Assuming you are comfortable, you can resume all normal activities. If you have any problems, contact your surgeon.
Yes, most likely. I do not know what type of work you have, but 3-4 days are more than typical 1-2 days to recover from wisdom teeth extraction. Call your dentist to verify. If you are given pain medications, you may want to review the pharmacist's recommendations as well. Some pain meds contain narcotic medications, and you are often advised not to operate machinery or make critical decisions while taking meds.
Varies. Most people like to wait a couple of days if there are no complications and minimal swelling. Of course, it depends on what you do for a living. Also depends on the number and complexity of the extractions. Good luck.
After 48 hours. After 48 hours you should feel fine and can resume your normal activities and go back to work.
It May Depend. How soon you should or can return to work may depend upon the number of teeth removed, the complexity of the procedure, if sedation was utilized, if you are still taking pain medication. As well as the activity requirements in your line of work.
Local plus sedation. Nitrous oxide combined with IV sedatives and local anesthetic is most common.
See Below. General anesthesia is a state in which the brain is put into a deep sleep and the pain centers are blocked. In addition, the dentist usually uses a local anesthetic in the area of surgery.
Light Sedation. Usually this operation can be done with local anesthesia and light sedation. Some dentists use valium, other might use a combination of medications including nitrous oxide.
5 days post wisdom teeth extraction (pulled 4), woke up today with pain, took OTC Meds and used heat and now I feel fine, can I go into work today?
Sounds like it. Hard question for anybody to answer except yourself....which I think you just did by the way you formulated your question. However, if you are hesitant to return due to the uncertainty of what could happen then, check with your dentist. They may able to guide you better as to what you can normally expect following such a procedure.
Work. You should be fine to return to work especially if your pain is controllable.
If pain is under. Control, then yes, you can return to work. However, if you have been feeling fine for several days and then suddenly experience pain again, a reevaluation by your dentist is in order to make sure you have not developed an infection or a dry socket.
Yes, you can. Wisdom teeth extraction is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain, swelling, bad breath and infection following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. After that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. Do not miss work and good luck.
Wisdom teeth. If you feel like you can work then go to work. Continue to follow the post op instructions.
Yes. As long as you can tolerate liquids and are not taking controlled medication you are safe to work if you feel up to it.
Yes, you can. It is best to avoid crunchy, hard foods like popcorn, nuts and corn chips for 7-10 days following surgery.
What are some different names of pills that are used as premedication for dental work/wisdom teeth extraction?
Valium, Versed. Usually a sedative which causes you to not have anxiety is prescribed. The two names given are common choices.
First choice is. Amoxicillin. Second choice is clindycin for people allergic to penicillin. Third choice is Erythromycin if allergic to both penicillin and clindamycin.
Facial swelling taking very long to subside after wisdom teeth extraction... it has been 3 months already and its only maybe 50% back to normal?
Unusual. This is very unusual and could signify a serious problem. Usually swelling will be accompanied by pain and/or fever. I would suggest seeing the doctor who removed the teeth for an evaluation.
Must see the surgeon. This is highly unusual and probably is being caused by an infection and possibly a fracture of the jaw. A follow up visit with the surgeon and new X-ray to determine the cause is important. If a definitive diagnosis is not obtained seek a 2nd opinion but do not delay.
Not likely. A year after an extraction the bone has long since healed. However, the bone may well be reshaping itself and/or atrophying. Jawbone exists to support teeth. When the teeth are removed the bone first heals the damage, then it senses that it is no longer needed so it begins to atrophy in order to spare the body the energy required for its maintenance. What you may be feeling is bone atrophy.
No. The nerve endings are regenerating in this area. Then may have been cut or injured during the surgical process and they are reestablishing themselves.
Yes. When you have an extraction, the bone fills in the socket from the bottom up to the surface. So you are growing bone. I haven't had any patients describe the itchy feeling you seem to be talking about. It's probably not related to the healing bone.
