Part 3: Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Be Fun – Ellen Degeneres Says So!
This is the third of a three part series on real life examples of how having your wisdom teeth extracted can actually be a fun experience and sometimes a hilarious one. The Ellen Show has really taken a liking to the whole process, especially the initial recovery period, where some rather amusing things can happen. Some of the medications that a patient receives are sedatives and relaxants that can make you a bit forgetful, euphoric, and un-inhibited. The medications are very well tolerated and metabolized quickly and everyone’s experience is unique, but in general, patients awaken surprised that the procedure is finished and in a pleasant, mellow, and super happy state.
The whole process at ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio in Chicago begins with a trip to to oral surgery suite on the day of your wisdom tooth removal procedure. You will have one of the very comfortable, peaceful, sterile operating rooms reserved for your oral surgery procedure. Patients have the choice to listen to whatever music that they like, and are able to pick from any genre and from over 40,000 songs (and always growing) residing on an Apple i-Pod that has an in-wall docking station. A patient’s personal music selection is played overhead through a premium sound system and then the procedure commences with some nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which is the first step in the dental sedation process. Patients awaken in a pleasant and euphoric mood, with their favorite musical artist still playing and often not believing that their wisdom teeth removal procedure is complete. Some patients are super euphoric and very talkative, and in this case here, where a young girl was featured on the Ellen Show, she actually thought Ellen Degeneres was present filming her!
