Just Had Gum Grafts Today April 14, 2008

I read many entries on here about gum grafting prior to my appointment today and I must say I was pleasantly surprised with my experience so far.  It's been about 8 hours since I finished so there's lots of time left in the healing process but the procedure itself wasn't bad at all.

My doctor recommended that I take Triazolam, a sedative, an hour before surgery to relax me.  I definitely recommend it to anyone else.  It made me relaxed and I listed to my iPod while he was doing everything.  The time went fairly quicly and I have very little swelling (so far) and very little pain.  I'm taking Ibuprofen for the little that I have.  I had 3 teeth done today and will have to go back for another 2 or 3 probably next year for insurance reasons. 

Overall, I signed up today and wanted to share my story because it went well.  I feel really badly for those of you who had bad experiences but I wanted to share a positive story for anyone who is having this done and is afraid.  Hang in there.
