I am having a large back tooth out tomorrow. I am really nervous. This is the first tooth I have had removed since diagnosis. Has anyone had problems after having a tooth removed. What can I expect?

Thanks for replies.


I had a tooth extracted after it cracked to pieces. Easy peasy! And my head no longer felt like it was in a vice - that was the worst paid I'd ever experienced. A little bridgework and I was good as new.

Good luck! Let us know how you do.

Ok, so I haven't had an extraction since dx, but have had extensive dental work done (pretty bad that the dentists' office staff know me by name when I walk in the door...) lately. Biggest thing to think about is: figure out soft things to eat for a couple days that won't spike you blood sugar- I usually try to make some low-carb non-chunky soups beforehand, stock up on sugar-free pudding, jello & stuff like that, mashed cauliflower, scrambled eggs, etc.

I had a couple of wisdom teeth removed a few years after I was diagnosed - it was no problem. I went in with my BG about 150 and let it sit there because I opted for sedation... I was fine after, and I healed pretty quick. I remember sleeping a lot the first few days afterwards due to the pain meds, but it really wasn't "that" bad.

I had my wisdom teeth out in 2003, and got them removed by a surgeon in hospital. Went in that morning, had a BG of 120 or so from what I remember, went to the OR, came out with squirrel like cheeks and a BG in the 200s, took half my normal dose, and was eating some vanilla ice cream 2 hours later. No problems really, except the spike after surgery. I slept a lot due to the pain medications, which was kind of nice, actually. I kept my BGs a bit high since I was eating less and sleeping more, but it was only for a few days. I just followed the doctor's instructions, and I was healed up in a normal amount of time.
