It is normal to experience some pain and discomfort following your procedure. Your surgeon will tailor a plan to suit your individual pain needs and medication history.
After Wisdom Teeth Surgery
It is normal to be numb in the lip region for several hours (up to 24) after your wisdom teeth surgery. This is the effect of the local anaesthetic that is placed at the time of surgery to help reduce your medication needs in the immediate post-surgery period.
Drug Interactions and medical conditions
If you have any medical condition or take any medications, please discuss the potential drug interactions with your pain control medications with your surgeon before taking any analgesics.
