Wisdom teeth

#1
Has anyone ever experienced any problems with their wisdom teeth whilst on a VLCD?

Everytime i've done a VLCD (LT & now CD) my wisdom teeth play up.
I have 3 wisdom teeth but one on my top left has come through at a slight angle.
I never notice any pain at all except when im on a VLCD.
It's weird cos the tooth seems to aggravate the side of the gum & makes it really sore.

Last time it made a hole in the side of my cheek, which took a while to heal. I had to have 2 lots of powerful antibiotics to clear it up & my jaw wouldn't open more than about half an inch for over a week.

Now is this just a coincidence that it only happens whilst im on a VLCD?

It's starting again & the inside of mouth is hurting :cry:

Other than that i feel fab & totally loving CD, so much better than LT.

I Have Had My Wisdom Teeth Removed Last Year ( 3 Removed) And One Involved Cutting Into The Gum To Get It Out As It Was Growing Sideways Into My Cheek.

Perhaps You Should Put Your Name On The Last To Get Them Out? I Had No End Of Problems With Mine And They Even Caused Swelling To My Face.

Sorry - But Don't Know Answer To Your Question About Vlcd And Pains.

Thanks for replying.

I'm going to make an appointment to see the dentist.
I'm worried about having them taken out, i think they do them there at the dentist :eek:
I think i would rather it be done at the hospital & be asleep.

I had them out at Christmas (so not much food for me Christmas day!) at the hospital. It is painful but nothing that a few painkillers can't solve. You are on the perfect diet for it! You can just have the shakes :) I was eating back then and couldn't chew...good practise for this diet with hindsight hehe! x

DAISY - I HAD MINE DONE IN HOSPITAL AND WAS A CHICKEN - I HAD A GENERAL ANAESTHETIC AND ALSO HAD STITCHES. WAS NOT AS BAD AS I EXPECTED AND ONLY VERY SLIGHT BRUISING TO MY FACE FOR A FEW DAYS. IT WAS SUCH A RELIEF TO GET THEM OUT AS I WAS IN ABSOLUTE AGONY.
I HAD THE OPTION TO HAVE THEM OUT IN THE DENTIST BUT DID NOT FANCY IT. I TOLD THE DENTIST I WAS AFRAID AND WOULD PREFER GENERAL ANAESTHETIC AND HE DID A REFERRAL LETTER TO MY GP. THERE WAS A HUGE WAITING LIST FOR THE SURGERY AND SO I DECIDED TO SEE A MAXOFACIAL SURGEON PRIVATELY - COST ME ABOUT £120 AND IT WAS THEN FAST TRACKED ON THE WAITING LIST. THEY REALLY LOOKED AFTER ME!!!! (That may have been because I was a Solicitor specialising in Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury !!!ha ha)
