Lily Allen experiences nasal problems after wisdom teeth removal


Lily Allen's wisdom teeth removal did not go as smoothly as she hoped.Lily Allen has said she experienced nasal problems after having all her wisdom teeth removed under general anaesthetic.

The singer went under the knife on Thursday (January 20th 2011) but found the operation did not go as smoothly as she hoped.

In news that may encourage people to seek out private emergency dentistry practitioners, Allen said on her Twitter page that she had a 16-hour nosebleed because of the oxygen tubes that were put up her nose to help her to breathe.

"Chapped lips, mouthful of blood. Not a great start to the weekend. Oh, and hamster cheeks doesn't even cover it," she commented.

Wisdom teeth removal is usually done under local anaesthesia, which should still completely block any pain from the gums. However, those who struggle with anxiety may be offered a sedative to help them relax.

A dentist will be able to explain the most appropriate form of treatment depending on individual circumstances.

Lily Allen ‘is to have all her wisdom teeth out’


Wisdom teeth will no longer be causing problems for Lily Allen after this week. Lily Allen is to have all of her wisdom teeth removed to prevent further problems with them, according to a post on her Twitter account.

The Smile singer said she is to have a procedure on Thursday (January 20th 2011) in which all four will be taken out following a mouth infection last summer.

As may be expected, she did not appear to be looking forward to it.

"Having all 4 wisdoms out on Thurs. OUCH! General anaesthetic, yum," Allen wrote.

The pop star has been out of the media spotlight lately after taking a career break to have a baby and then miscarrying the child last year when she was six months pregnant.

This follows advice from American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons chair Louis Rafetto, who recently told that having wisdom teeth out could improve oral hygiene and prevent future dental complaints.

He explained that they are hard to clean due to their position at the back of the mouth and could also push other teeth out of line.
