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.
