It is very unusual to have two sets of wisdom teeth - are you sure? Removal is only required if problems occur and the teeth do not erupt normally. After surgery, there is commonly pain, swelling, bruising and rarely tingling or numbness in lip, chin, tongue which us usually transient. The difficulty of the surgery depends on the position of the teeth, best assessed in the clinic and by radiography (X-Ray). Most importantly, don't worry. Wisdom tooth removal is the most common surgical procedure carried out, which means surgeons are very good at even the more difficult cases. Dr Nicholas Manning BDS Glasg MFDS (RCSEng) If you have an extra set of wisdom teeth, there are good chances that your mouth has more room for the dentist of the surgeon to work and remove them. As Dr Nicholas said, you will experience a few days of discomfort, and you will have pain killers and maybe antibiotics to take. You will have some swelling, but after a week, you will feel the discomfort much less.
