Okay i just got back from the dentist, which i must i hate going there, bright lights and just the smell. oh wel such is life. they mentioned me getting my wisdom teeth out sometime, hopefully i can put this off as long as possible due to money issues. but i want to know if i should have them removed in the office or in the hospital as today before the dentist came in i had one of my full body twitches, which i guess freaked out teh doc but he had my mom come back and all is fine. :) Well besides the killer headache.

Ideas, suggestions welcome,

susie :)

Hi,

My wisdom teeth were impacted, so it was pretty rough. :) I had mine done at the dentists office, well he was an oral surgeon. I don't think I was diagnosed with POTS then though, do whatever you feel more comfortable doing though!

All 4 of mine were impacted and infected when I got them out a couple years ago ... I had to get the tooth next to it out as well...

I did it in the office with novacaine and a small dose of versed to relax me....

They wanted to use a general on me and give me all these different drugs....

I am glad I refused b.c the prodedure for me was nothing...it literally took 10 minutes for it to be done with....

I worried for nothing and was happy to be able to get up and leave without having anastesia in me.....

I do not know the severity of your POTS but the hospital will do it there if its medically nessesary...

Good Luck..... and I hope things go well :)

Hi,

I never got wisdom teeth so I dont know about that. I did have a molar pulled after 3 root canals and 2 crowns. $3000 and 2 years later it still throbbed so I said pull it!

It wasnt bad, but I have a sensitivity to the epinephrine in the novacaine, its in there to constric the blood vessels to minimize bleeding. I have to make sure they dont use epi on me, it sends me into tachycardia for days.

Good luck

I would really suggest you get yours out in a hospital. I don't know your exact situation, but if it is anything like mine was, you should have it done at a hospital. I had mine out in a hospital four years ago by an oral surgeon. All four were impacted, but they were starting to shift my teeth so they had to take them out. All my docs felt like it was okay, so I went ahead and did it. Afterwards, my BP was really low and HR was really high so they gave me 4 bags of fluid within just a short period of time. They told me it might be best to stay overnight, but that I could go home if I wanted after I was a little more stable. I decided to go home, but it set me so far back. I had to have a PIC line and 2 liters of fluid everyday for about 6 months just to get me back to normal. Apparently the anesthesia just really messed things up. It was a pretty rough experience. I don't want to scare you though, because it might be fine. I just wanted to warn you that you should be cautious.

I got mine done in the chair and i was ok. I did freak the dentist out as i started to jerk about and cry as the room started spinning and i was getting sharp pins and needles in my hands even when he was not actually touching me. I dont know if it was just a reaction or i was having an anxiety attack. I thought it went quite well but my poor dentist was totally freaked out. However i recoverd quite well and i was really terrified of setting myself back. It is probably good advice to go to the hospital if you can ... but i would also suggest that you KNOW your dentist or surgen. I know mine and knew he tended not to be harsh... he rarely hurt and therefore i trusted that he would be 'softer' on me. I think we may be quite sensitive so if you have a rough surgeon it may hinder recovery. I dont mean to freak you out, i just thought it may be an idea to think about. Good luck :blink:

Thanks everyone, i am putting this off as long as possible since i am already in a crash i want to try to get out of this one a little bit more. Mine are coming up straight, altho i am not sure if i have enough room for them as i turned down x-rays this time around as i didn't feel the greatest. I probably would suggest saline before, during and after, not sure i want to be totally out or just numbed but i think totally out would work better incase i have one of my full body spasms or whatever you want to call them. I had one when the dentist came in yesterday and boy he freaked out....haha glad i had my mom w/ me. The thing that worries me is recovery, i mean it took my brother a week to actually eat, for me i hope it doesn't take any longer.

just getting ideas around but the hospital sounds the safest at least to me,
