Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Lead to Brain Damage

I have previously discussed how Austin Stone was left in a coma after having his wisdom teeth removed. Recently, I have seen that Megan Rae Comstock several years ago suffered from permanent brain damage as a result of an overdose of sedation while having her wisdom teeth removed. Specifically it appears that her brain was deprived of essential oxygen during the oral surgery which lead to the brain injury and damage. This is believed to have occurred due to the oral surgeon giving Megan more than the recommended amount of sedation during the procedure. It is quoted that Megan “went from being an accomplished pianist and equestrienne to one who is now challenged in these and in many other areas.” It is very unfortunate that complications from wisdom teeth removal can lead to brain damage which is a very serious problem especially at a young age like Megan. To learn more about the case and legal matters that followed I encourage you to read http://www.leagle.com/unsecure/page.htm?shortname=intxco20100831804 and http://www.9thcoa.courts.state.tx.us/opinions/htmlopinion.asp?OpinionID=9207

Here is one survey response after completing the initial questions in the elaborate section. The numbness is around my lower lip all the way down to my chin and teeth on the bottom left side and I am freaked out i was told there would be a 1 in 100 chance of a tingling sensation but i didn’t think it would happen to me i am seriously freaked out I can’t live like this forever and its only been 5 days. Here is another Wisdom Teeth Removal Survey response. I had 1 impacted wisdom tooth and was advised to be sedated and have all 4 removed, minutes before the op i was asked to sign […]

Deadly Infection and Wisdom Teeth Removal

I found a short snippet from the Wharton School of Business. The article addresses Wharton’s 2010 Business Plan Competition. One of the teams in the article is called R2R Therapeutics. The motivation for the team was 2nd year Wharton MBA student Bee Rhee who almost lost his wife due to a bacterial infection that occurred after the removal of his wife’s wisdom teeth. His wife was given antibiotics and they were able to stop the infection and she is currently alive today. However this business plan from this team does highlight a growing concern in healthcare which has to do with bacterial which is becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics. R2R Therapeutics’ goal is to combat these drug resistant bacteria by focusing on a novel cationic steroid antibiotic called R2R-1 which will work to disrupt the cell membrane and kill the bacteria. The effect would be to have the bacteria mutate and change less often and thus be less resistant to causing deadly infections such as what could potentially occur after the extraction of wisdom teeth. The article states So far, the team reported that R2R-1 appears to be resistant to resistance, safe and highly potent. Using technology discovered […]

Dental Practices of some Dentists Websites Online is Questionable

Lately I have been frustrated with a particular individual who calls himself “georgeshoemoney”. His email is georgeshoemoney@yahoo.com. He commonly registers on website forums (such as my own before I deleted his account and posts) and replies to posts and/or starts new posts with really weak content which might contain a sentence of poor English. He then has a link in the signature of his post which contains a link to a dentist website. He commonly links to¬† skyedental.com using the link ‘Dentist in Milpitas.’ On other websites I have also seen him link to dentistsorange.com using the link “Dentists in Orange.’ Now digging a little deeper I see that both of these sites contain a link to stratforce.com. Now I have deliberately not HTML linked to these websites because I do not agree with these camouflage techniques to manipulate Google search ratings. The thought is is that you can add a link with some useful link text to many websites to your website than this will help you appear higher up when people search in Google. So it appears to me that some Dentists are deciding to have their website designed by stratforce.com who then goes on to use these […]

Living with NDPH

On my website I discuss New Daily Persistent Headache (NDPH) . I have also previously posted some NDPH chronic headache articles. Recently I found a website called Living with NDPH. The site is written by Amy, a mother of 3, who has suffered with a chronic persistent headache for 4 years, and has been blogging about it since last August. If you suffer from NDPH her website is a good resource. Another great resource is MDJunction as I have posted about before. I recently read an interesting story of Amy’s Living with NDPH website about a Young Boy Cured of NDPH after suffering from 5 months. Essentially in the story which I encourage you to read on Amy’s website the young 11 year old boy had a headache start near the start of 2010. He had several tests done and went to several neurologists all while trying several medications. Roughly 5 months after the headache started and conventional treatments were not helping, he saw a Craniosacral Therapist. She claimed to reduce the twisting and tension at the base of the young boy’s head. This caused the young boy to begin to return to his old normal headache free self. Now […]
