Looking for a Saint to Intercede for Your Wisdom Tooth Surgery?

While there isn’t a patron saint of wisdom teeth that I could find, there is a patron saint of toothaches and dentists!
And if you think wisdom tooth surgery is bad, then you’ve never heard of St. Apollonia! Like, I’d rather have wisdom tooth surgery seven times over than go through what she did.
St. Apollonia lived in Alexandria during the reign of Emperor Philip. During this time, Christians were persecuted by pagans. In 249, a mob attacked St. Apollonia and beat her so hard that all her teeth were knocked out! No anesthesia for St. Apollonia.
The crowd then threatened to throw her into a fire if she didn’t curse God. She pretended to consider the situation before throwing herself into the flames rather than denounce her God.
Before my own wisdom teeth surgery a few days ago, I prayed for her intercession. All went well!
