Q.

Wisdom tooth Extraction

Hi,
Im going for a wisdom tooth extraction in the chair this week. Do they still unhinged the jaw - or is that only a last resort if they cant get the tooth out?

Ive been given a perscription for a sedative, but still petrified of having to have my jaw unhinged. Does it happen that the jaw cant go back in?

they will not "unhinge" your jaw in the chair - the surgeon will do the procedure in the chair if it is relativley simple or else he would have booked you into theatre.
