Talk to a Friend or Family
Member

Let someone know that you’ll be here for wisdom tooth removal and will need a ride home; be sure this is all planned before you come to Argyle, as we cannot release you from the clinic unless someone is present to accompany you out of the clinic and take you home. You cannot use Uber, taxi or public transit on your own to get home; either somebody drives you or accompanies you on one of those means.

Talk with Your Workplace or School

Getting your wisdom tooth/teeth removed means you’ll need to take a little time off from work or school. Get your homework assignments in advance if possible. Make sure your boss or teacher knows why you’ll be out; this procedure and the ensuing recovery are a legitimate reason to be away. Sometimes it takes up to 3-4 days to resume routine activities.

Make Sure You’ve Got Some Soft Food

A day or two before your wisdom tooth removal, start buying and/or preparing soft foods in anticipation of what you’ll need during the first few days of recovery. Cook & refrigerate or even freeze in advance, so that you’ll have soft food on hand & one less thing to deal with during recovery. Soft foods include Jell-O, pudding, broth, oatmeal, applesauce, etc. Have some ice packs ready, too.

Get Your Logistics Squared Away

In addition to your ride home, plan on not being able to drive for the 24-hour period following oral surgery and sedation. If you are taking narcotics for pain, you cannot drive under the influence of these substances. You’ll have discussed the prescription in your consultation appointment so you should be aware by now of what medication you’ll be taking. Plan accordingly so that you’re not stuck at home.
