I had 4 wisdom teeth removed early yesterday morning. I am in no pain, and needed none of my prescription painkillers. I am a Private Pilot, flying small aircraft. How would altitude change affect my recovery? It would be relatively low, no more than 4000-5000 ft MSL.

  • It depends upon whether the extraction was surgical or normal extraction. In case of surgical extraction where bone cutting is done then in that case it is better you take it easy for a day or two but if it was normal extraction then you can resume your work. for more info on do's and dont's after tooth extraction, you can read this article in our website...http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
