on another note I wish you the best of luck.


You'll probably be prescribed Maxigesic - Paracetomol and Ibruprofen - Painkillers
and Cefaclor which is an anti biotic...

he said oral surgeon. are they well impacted? if they are not impacted definitely a dentist with experience will be ok. i had mine under local anaesthetic - i didn't feel a thing. until 8pm that night and my head tried to expand out of my skull for the next 3 days, then it started to beat itself back into place.

a bit impacted, some dentist can some can't.

very impacted -> oral surgeon

When I had mine removed I didn't remember a thing - but they're gone so it must have been OK.

I know in my case my insurance won't cover me if I get a dentist to extract my wisdom teeth but will if an Oral surgeon does it.

I hate pain and I'm not worried about the money so I want to be given the good drugs and knocked out

I'm 37 and apparently that is quite old? to have them removed. I should have had them out 10 years ago my dentist said.

Currently me (older than 37) and kids (younger than 37) are going through this, and we keep getting told - the earlier you get rid of them, the better.

If you dont mind costs, get it done under general anesthetic, bit it will be about $4000 for all 4.  I can recommend Angus at http://www.angleseaoms.co.nz/about-us/meet-the-surgeons/dr-angus-colquhoun/ He did a very messy impacted + covered by gum wisdom tooth right next to a tooth that had a dead root (and had an earlier root canal) on me (with just a local + sedative) however he now only works out of Hamilton.

I got mine whilst under IV conscious sedation, was well worth it.

Partner wouldn't allow me to get pizza after the whole thing so I phoned my parents to complain - was a shame that she didn't record it as the dentist said it was really funny.

Edit: mine came to $2100 after 4 teeth removed - health insurance FTW, got mine done at Symes de Sylva here in Wellington.

Thx, the age something to do with the wisdom teeth fusing into the bone and making it much more vicious to get removed. $4000 is a lot but OW I'm in pain and they're impacted and I need them out!

Lol that is hilarious

Can you describe more. So you're not asleep but awake? Better than a local and not knocked out like a general? No anaesthetist required so cheaper?

Didn't feel anything?

I've been told they're going to have to hack into my jawbone etc to get these bastards out.

Wow, I knew it was cheaper through the dental school ($700 I was fully KO'd) but that's nuts.

I was told that just the anesthetist plug the gas, room, etc, is around $2000, so basically doubles the cost.
