Re: [IP] wisdom teeth

Our 17 year old daughter has been diabetic for 8 years and uses the pump.
She had her wisdom teeth and 4 teeth pulled a year ago for braces.  she
didn't have a minutes problem.  Talk to the dentist before you have the work
done.  I think it helped that kates dentist had treated people with
diabeties before.  One thing he told us he usually does that he did not do
with her was us steriods.  It is suppose to help healing or something.  I
think that helped her not be as sick afterwards as I had been when i had my
wisdom teeth removed a few years earlier.  She only had to have two pain
pills, and really was doing okay the next day.  She ate alot of soup and
jello.  I know the pump made the experience alot easier.  good luck
