Thread: Wisdom Tooth Extraction

  1. #41

    Default Re: Wisdom Tooth Extraction

    Just had mine done. $450 for 1 lower wisdom tooth, and $50 for the medicine.
    I think the molar in front of it also gone case.

    So do remember to visit the dentist for regular checkups, and brush/floss/rinse ! Better to spend time doing it than the pain and $$ spent later. *oops, slightly OT*

    Mine was done by Dr Steven Ang from Shenton Dental. Highly recommended cos Dr Ang
    is a very nice dentist, cute and gentle too

    4 wisdom teeth extraction costed me $2K+ as need to undergo GA. Luckily my
    company and medisave helped to foot the bill, I just pay the GST thats all. Although
    the bill is extremely expensive to some but it really worth every cent, dun forget wisdom
    tooth extraction is no small deal, can even cost one's life if not done properly.

    So, recommended
    I am referred to Alex for the operation as well. Which lady dentist that did the surgery for you..?

    the whole that he cut/extract was too huge, took a long while to recover.

Visit my Family doc for stronger dose of anti-botic for 3 times to tackle the infection of my throat. Cost me another hundred to cure the infection.

    One Week of MC. One Week of Sleepless night. One week of Porridge.

    I believe the Dentist is rushing to finish the jobs so that he can go for his lunch.

    Needless to say, the other wisdom tooth is still in my mouth after that incident.

    Good Luck.

    Smooth ice cream to numb the sore gums.

    Life is short and anyway have to tahan the inconvenience of recuperation, so might as well make full use of cold desserts

    am going for a gum inspection later , heard that if got gum problems , the bill can rake up to 1k , am already so poor n then now this can happen. and while having the pain , i thought its tooth ache , then dentist confirm point out that its gum problem.

    take care of your body parts , if the pain cannot kill u , the medical bill just might be able to do that

    When they make u numb, you wouldn't feel anything but the pain comes after some time. That time, best don't eat else u sure CRY!!! Cannot open mouth or chew, suffering like hell!!! All above is my own personal experience. You may or might experience different type of pain.

    no pain at all when they are extracting the wisdom tooth?
    i was getting my wisdom tooth "cleaned" as it had an infection. even after 2 jabs anesthesia , i could still feel the pain during the cleaning process. i was clenching my fist!
