I am going to need my wisdom teeth removed sometime soon. I know people run into problems with suboxone and surgery. Is it okay to be put under during the procedure? Out of all the medical procedures out there the one's I am least able to handle are dental work.
If its completely necessary I will get my wisdom teeth pulled without being put under. What are the thoughts on this?
I have had my Wisdome Teeth removed under local Anesthetic. The Dentist knew i was on Subutex & they know that it doesnt effect or has nothing to do with being put under local Anesthetic. However if u are going to be put to sleep thats a different issues alltogether but i dont see why u would need to be put to sleep for extracting Wisdom teeth unless they are impacted but i thought mine were impacted aswell but still got them done under local Anesthetic. Mind you i be worried about the infection setting in after Tooth Extraction speacially if u take sub ( u will anyway, u have to innit) the next day as my Dentist said that actually prolongs the healing of the extraction Site & might the cause of Chronin Tooth aches & extractions. (If u get them often). Am sure u will be ok but let your Dentist know.
Put yourself and Family first always and trust in God.
Steve....don't ask to be put under.(That's always my first choice with dental work as well) But the local anestestia will work just fine. You'll want to let the dentist know, simply because you may need an extra dose or so. And some anti-biotics ,if needed, don't work as well with the sub.
In the mean time clove oil works well. Just don't get it on your tonque or lips! It'll burn like a hot jalepeno. Nasty tasting, but works better then any anbesol or orajel product.
BTW...the sub would'nt have anything to do with wisdom tooth pain. But alot of us,myself included, experienced 'unknown' tooth pain while on the sub.Disappeared post jump.

saw your post re dental work.Here are my reflections any dentist that needs to use GA to perform a procedure is not very adept so as a rule,local anaethesia rules( except for holland etc where they are brave).If you are having wisdoms out infra and supra-alveolar nerve blocks by a good dentist will be adequate, you may feel pressure etc but the lidocaine or equivalent should do the job.Dental pain,which is after all a pressure/inflammation pain responds poorly to opioids and is better dealt with an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen.There is a theoretical interaction between lidocaine and phenytoin but as long as the LA goes where it should dont worry.Bupe. is a poor pain-kiler but great detox med.Hope that helps.PS regards antibiotics well thats a function of your bacteraemic risl and heart valves.If they are normal then not necessary but see local guideline as its the USA i guess they'll give you ABS then prob irradiate you ( I jest).Hope alls well Cheers M'camera
