Geez, the list of things that could go wrong was a mile long but the doctor was very nice and seemed extremely professional and competent. He did mention the correlation between antibiotics and b/c but not between dry socket and b/c. Hmmm...

        I had all 4 taken out when I was 16. It wasn't that bad bc they knock you out. I agree the root canal procedure is worse - but I think the recovery for wisdom teeth is longer and less fun. Don't worry - just follow the doctor's orders and you will be fine!

            I'm kinda late on this but seriously don't worry it will be fine. It may be uncomfortable for a couple days after, and youll probably have some puffy cheeks. Just don't poke them.

            Are you getting put under? I was and it was great, pretty cool. I woke up and I had a weird sog stuck in my head and then they filled my mouth with lots of gauze. I was pretty drugged up on T3s too! make sure you eat with them!! Or else you can become very dellusional, as I did, and decide to dye your hair black. BIG MISTAKE HAHAHAH

              Haha, yeah that's the only thing I'm looking forward to are the drugs afterwards ;P

              I am TOTALLY getting put under!!!

              Thanks for the reassuring words. :)

                i was so scared - but it ended up being no big deal. i had 2 impacted too. i came home, i took the first pain pill, but none of the ones after that. i never was in any pain, or never got dry sockets or anything - and i am on the pill! everyone has a different reaction - but it seems that most people end up saying it wasn't as bad as they thought it would be afterwards.

                Oh, make sure you take a photo when you get home! The puffy cheeks are hilarious a few months later when you forget about the pain.

                I must say, even with my dry sockets, the pain did go away very quickly. It wasn't a week long pain or anything. Just when the doctor took out the packing stuff... without numbing me... my reaction was probably VERY similar to Tara's!

                  I had all 4 of mine taken out in two sessions. I had it done in Mexico as it was MUCH cheaper. I had it done last year. The dentist was incredible. He didn't knock me out but he did give me something like 4 or 5 injections on each side.

                  He was really careful and actually cracked the teeth in four and then just kind of lifted each part out. I had no swelling and almost no pain. It took about 2 hours. I went in arround 9 in the morning and by 5 in the afternoon I was sucking on Paletas. They really helped. Paletas=popscicles.
