Helping you make a speedy recovery after removal of wisdom teeth

Planning for your return

Most people who have wisdom tooth surgery will be off work for anywhere between 1 and 3 days, including the day of surgery. Talk with your Occupational Health Service and work out when and how are best for you to return to work.

If you have a physically demanding job, you might just want to ask your employer about returning to work on lighter duties over the first few days. This might mean:

  • Spending more time sitting rather than standing
  • Doing work that is mostly paperwork, using a computer or telephone
  • Avoiding tasks such as prolonged loading or unloading, packing or unpacking.

If you have an HR Department at work, they will be able to advise you regarding sick pay or any other benefit you may be entitled to during your time off. Alternatively, talk directly with your employer.

3 Golden rules for a speedy recovery:

  • Stay active
  • Keep a normal daily routine
  • Good oral hygiene

Confidence

It will take you a little while to regain your full confidence when you go back to work. You may be slower than normal at first, so don’t take on too much responsibility too soon. Don’t be too hard on yourself about this - it’s perfectly normal and you’ll start to get back up to speed after a few days.
