"First class surgeon & team - Highly recommend"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

Went in for a complicated impacted wisdom teeth removal under full anesthetic (2 bottom teeth). Was quite nervous but all the staff from reception to nurses, anesthesia team & surgeon made me feel at ease. We even managed to have a good laugh. Everything was explained to me and all my questions were answered in an effective manner. The surgeon did an amazing job on 2 teeth that were very difficult to get to as they were at the back of my mouth with only the tip showing out of the gum. Did not bleed afterwards or had any infection. As far as I can tell they did a fantastic job. Was in pain from day 2 to 7 but this was to be expected, the pain killers helped and so did ice packs & eventually a hot water bottle. After 2 weeks, I felt pretty much like normal again without the bother of those troublesome teeth. Highly recommend and am so grateful for all the hard work provided by the NHS. Thank you all.
