Helping you make a speedy recovery after removal of wisdom teeth
Normally, you may want to wait a couple of days before you drive. You will usually be fit to drive 24 hours after the operation if you have had intravenous sedation or 48 hours after if you have had a general anaesthetic.
Before resuming driving, you will need to be fully recovered from your surgical procedure. You should also be free from the distracting effect of pain, the sedative or other effects of any pain-relief medication you are taking, and be able to concentrate fully on driving. You should be comfortable in the driving position and able to safely control your car, including freely performing an emergency stop.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are in control of the vehicle at all times and to feel confident that you would be able to demonstrate this if asked.
