      Next week I have to get one of my wisdom teeth taken out. Got to be done as its moving. I'm very apprehensive as I've heard that many people have gotten T after an extraction. I really don't want things getting any worse!

      Use the search. There were several threads on this topic.

      Dental surgeon + general anesthesia if you want to be on the safe side.

      Depends, if it is an "easy" pull or the tooth is buried.

      If it is a complex pull and hard to reach I wouldn't go for a normal dentist + local A.
      Speaking from experience, you want to avoid stress, pain and strain on your jaw.

      Talk to your doctor and ask if you need to be refered to a dental surgeon because of one tooth.

      It's not buried. Maybe I could wiggle it about lol! Or should I wait till it really loose? I'm concerned it might get infected.

      It didn't mine.
      BUT I had a 'dog eared' root stuck in my jawbone and when he got the drill out - WOW.
      I quickly plugged my ear and my arm seemed to be in the way of the dentist's leg. He said, Oh bad ears, it's OK, it'll only take a minute.
      WRONG.

      My T was somewhat increased from baseline but I had two tooth extractions (upper wisdom and molar) in the same day. What I caution you with is taking strong pain killers. I started taking 800mg ibuprofen and around the 5th day I noticed an increasingly high pitched tone in my "better" ear. Immediately stopped taking pain killers and around 2 or 3 days later the new tone had subsided to a point it was unnoticeable. If you take pain killers just take low doses at a time. Try to minimize it. Some people's T will react to them, some won't, mine did. Goodluck!

      Rina, it was fine! I absolutely hate Dentists, but the extraction was relatively quick and not as painful as expected. I was more worried about getting a dry socket which is seriously painful. My T did get a bit louder for a few days but no big shakes. However, another wisdom is playing up now.........
