Getting Wisdom Teeth Out

Recommended Posts

Sooo, I just made an appointment to go have my wisdom teeth taken out next Thursday (2 impacted and 1 regular). I will be through with my finals on Tuesday so that will be over and then I will have a whole month to recover before my trip to Mexico June 9th. I'm very nervous though! smile41.gif

Ahh - I haven't had mine out either. My dentist said I could wait a year.... but that was a year ago! lol. I'm such a massive wimp. Plus, if they're so wise then why do we get rid of them?

 

Good luck! Please tell me afterwards that it was a delightful, painless procedure!

Haha, that's great. Maybe if I tell my doctor that he will reconsider removing them...? Seriously though, what did cave-people do? ;P

I had all 4 of mine taken out when I was 20. It wasn't that bad, promise. I guess it also depends on how well you handle pain. I hope everything goes well.

HA! Wasn't bad my butt! BUT, the thing you must know is that they say taking birth control gives you dry sockets... and it sure did for me. All four. Worst pain ever.

Again, but... my dad just had his removed on Monday. Very funny when drugged up... but he just went in today with dry sockets. Only one though. Lucky!

Does your dad take birth control? lol - just kidding! wink.gif

 

My dad got dry sockets too - but he's a smoker and they warned him that if he smoked he'd get them, and sure enough he was back complaining about them!

I got dry sockets tooo!!!!!!! It SUCKED big time. BUt for me it happened when I went in 1.5 weeks later to get them checked and cleaned and the new lady stuck the sucker upper deal in the hole and sucked the blood clot out. I'm normally pretty calm and non confrontational but I was ready to smack that lady in the head it hurt so bad. Then I was so rude to her and my poor mom is sitting there all embarassed by the way her 20yr old kid is acting.

 

So, yeah, good luck with that rolleyes.gif

I got my teeth pulled out and it was not a huge deal. I was up and ready about 3 hours later. Couldnâ€t really eat anything, but I was okay. I think what sucks is having a root canal. That was not good time.

I had all four impacted take out over spring break my sophomore year...it was not that bad, however I was swollen very badly and did get those nasty yellow bruises, just make sure you clean them out and follow all the docs orders.
