"Upper impacted Wisdom Tooth removal"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I had my upper impacted wisdom tooth removed under GA 17th July 2014 and from the nurses to the surgeons they were all very caring and kind. If you are nervous just let the nurses know and they will help you. The build up is way worse than the actual procedure. I was in a bit of pain but not excruciating pain like I thought. The day after it is very sore but as long as I keep washing my mouth out with salty water and keep on top of ibuprofen i believe I will be fine. A massive thank you to all the nurses who in my opinion deserve a lot more respect that they get as they do try their best with the little resources they are given and to the Surgeons. :-)
