I was terrified of getting all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth taken out, especially because I have TMJ issues. I had so many fears: my jaw not returning to normal after surgery, intensive jaw pain and soreness, waking up during the surgery, revealing all my deep dark secrets after surgery, etc.
The only thing I was looking forward to was the prospect that I would lose weight after a post-operative soft foods/liquid diet!
None of my surgery nightmares actually came to fruition, although I was obviously a bundle of nerves. Dr. Blatter was very calm and receptive to my concerns. His office staff was sooo friendly and easy to work with!! (Office staff plays heavily into how I evaluate my doctors... Are you smart enough to hire good people upfront?)
As far as aftercare, Dr. Blatter is really prompt to get back to you if you call with concerns, and has thorough follow up appointments.
