What to Expect at Your Wisdom Teeth Consultation

For most people, the mere idea of having to see a dental surgeon can cause anxiety and panic attacks. So combine this apprehension with the pain of wisdom teeth and most dental surgeons will report that part of their role is handling patients’ fears helping them to feel calm and relaxed about their upcoming wisdom teeth removal.

As a wisdom teeth sufferer, the sooner you address your wisdom teeth pain the sooner you can move on and live your ordinary pain-free life. So what happens when you phone a dental practice? You are scheduled in for a consultation.

At the initial consultation the dental surgeon will examine your mouth and review recent dental panoramic x-rays or if this has not been completed, get these done for you or will book you in to get these done (which may mean returning for a secondary consultation). They will also discuss the details of wisdom teeth removal procedure, risks and benefits of the procedure, present you with anaesthesia options and check to see if you have any allergies. They will also provide you with a list of things you will need to do to prepare for the procedure including organising safe trip back home and post-recovery advice. The oral surgeon can also discuss ways of dealing with your fears and anxieties and if need be, recommend sleep dentistry.

You will get the opportunity to ask questions and ensure that you understand what is involved including the costs. Most dental surgeons will provide you with a written document of what the topics you have discussed however if not, you can also ask for written material that will aid you in your preparation.
