    No. You won't be okay with a metal tongue ring during sedation for a huge range of safety reasons. If you can't find a retainer you'll need to remove it for the duration of the operation. If you're completely refusing to take it out then they can refuse to remove your teeth.

    I would not anaesthetise someone who refused to take out an oral piercing. Too much risk to the airway, plus there's a good chance I could damage it/the tongue when the breathing tube goes in/out.

    What are your reasons for not removing it?

    How long have you had it? I accidentally slept overnight without mine in and it didn't heal up... although there was a bit of resistance when putting it back in.

    I think it should be fine I've had mine for much less than that. You just need to make sure once you wake up and get out of that grogginess you put it back in.

    It did hurt when I put it back in because it had healed up a little bit but if you've had your tongue pierced you're used to the sensation.

    The op itself is probably 1-1.5 hours, depending how impacted the teeth are. Add a bit more time afterwards for recovery from anaesthesia. I have no idea how quickly it would close up, I'm afraid. But having to get re-pierced is a less bad option than it getting ripped out by accident.
