I have been told by the Dental Hospital Dublin that I can have two Wisdom Teeth taken out under General Anaesthetic,I thought I read here that they don't do that there any more,anyone else have it done there? any other advice on this?
thanks in advance
Are you sure that they said General Anaesthetic?
Two of the maxillofacial surgeons there have access to general anaesthetic facilities (St James's and The Mater) but usually reserve these valuable slots for bigger procedures such as oral cancer, facial trauma and fractures and orthodontic surgery cases.
Are your wisdom teeth particularly difficult? Do you have any complicating factors such as medical problems, very poor mouth opening etc etc....
Where is this booked for?
If it is the Dental hospital or St Marys hospital- then it is IV sedation.
If it is the Mater or St James's then GA is possible but why??
These days, the dental hospital advise IV sedation for nearly all difficult wisdom tooth procedures....
