So I know my Son will likely have to have Wisdom teeth extracted in BC, but my question is this:
WHEN? Do they do it early on? I know they give 2-3 days SIQ to recover, but I'm still concerned that this will affect his PFA's.
Anyone know the answer to this?
Wisdom teeth will not be extracted until after their initial run is passed. They will still have to do the other two, but the teeth are not done at a time it should have any bearing.
Thank you SO much ellen0502!
You really eased my concerns.
Have a great day!
I was wondering about this, too! My FS had an oral surgeon appointment to extract 2.5 weeks prior to his ship-out for boot camp on July 18...but we cancelled, as suggested by his recruiter, not wanting to have a "surgery" or change in medical status. Thanks, this is good to know!
Hi Boogies Mom here is a site that you can read on dental.
If your recruit requires additional dental work, s/he will get that on board the USS Osborne. (See http://www.lovell.fhcc.va.gov/locations/USSOsborne.asp.)
Thank you Phoenixmom!
Hope you are having a great day!
You are Welcome, hope all goes well with that OUCH! keep me posted on the outcome!
My son had his extracted after his first run test. He wrote a letter & said he was sore but had 2 days of SIQ. He's in his 5th week of BC right now, so I am guessing all is well & healed up!
Hi, my son had his wisdom teeth removed in about the 3rd week of BC. He missed his phone call home that weekend. He was in SIQ for 3 days and was right back into his division. It didn't seem to interfere with his PFA's. I think they did it near the weekend and I think he was back to his division on a Monday or Tuesday. But then again, that was his division. I don't know if they do it the same for every division.
