Waiting list for Extraction of wisdom teeth

Jul 8, 2015
Hi all,

I've recently been referred to the Glan Clywd Hosiptal in North Wales to have two wisdom teeth extracted.

The teeth are impacted but they're causing reoccurring pericoronitis and abscesses in my mouth.

I've been on Metrodiozale for over three weeks and I still have an infection in that area affecting my tooth and gum, causing server pain and I'm having trouble sleeping.

I've spoken to the hospital and the waiting list for the procedure is up to 6 months. I'm not sure what I can do now as this is really affecting my working life as I travel and see clients and at the moment my face is swollen and sore meaning I'm struggling with appointments.

I'd consider going private but my dentistry said this wouldn't help?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Doesn't going private mean you can get the extractions done at YOUR convenience, not the government's? I fail to see how that wouldn't help?
