    Getting Wisdom Teeth out tomorrow, advice?

    I'm kinda nervous, not much. Just need some advice on what to do and what not to do.

    Don't sit at a Royals game in 105 degree heat index the day after..... Even if you feel fine.

    Re: Getting Wisdom Teeth out tomorrow, advice?

    Everything everyone told me was that is isn't a big deal at all and that they barely had any troubles, and as long as you avoid dry socket you are fine. I ended up pretty miserable for a week. My recovery was the longest I have heard of. I didn't get dry socket either, so I think I am pretty unique in that it wasn't a very good experience. I tend to bruise easily so maybe it had to do with that. All four of mine were beneath the gums also which may be relevant.

    Don't be worried about going under at all, that's the really easy part. Breath the laughing gas heavily haha. I didn't eat for just about 2 days after they pulled them, I think it may have been to swallowing blood that leaks a bit. Don't remove your gauze until you are sure it is clotted. That's about it I think.

    Oh yeah and take all the pills they give you as directed because even if you feel fine once they wear off you will probably be in pain, and it will take an hour or so to kick in. So be preemptive in that way.

    Mine weren't that bad even though one came out in pieces. Mostly slept the rest of the day, and good to go the next.

    It's a pretty simple process. Just don't plan on doing too much over the next couple days.

    Get a D.D. and get ice cream after. I'm sure my dad had a good laugh watching ice cream dribble down my half paralyzed face when I was younger...I just didn't care though. it was delicious and the most soothing it had ever been in my life.

    That first 2 hours after you get home are the worst. You don't feel like doing anything at all, not even sleep. Once you get past that its alright other than the eating thing.

    If you're getting knocked out for it, you'll be fine. I couldn't eat any solids for a couple days but other than that, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Get ready for milkshakes, jello, pudding and ice cream.

    Thanks for the advice. I had a pectis excavatum at age 13 (google it, or YouTube it if your not queasy). And that was deep anesthetia. Just a different expierience with less anesthetia.

    Got dry socket in the one that grew in sideways. Only had 3, other 2 were under the gums. Didn't need to get them out but did because once in a while my sideways tooth would cause a little bleeding when I ate. Dry socket is terrible, if you've ever chipped a tooth and then had cold liquid hit it, it feels like that x10 and lasts about a minute instead of a few seconds. My sister had hers out today, she has been fine so far. Tomorrow she can eat soft foods.

    My only issue was getting Mac and Cheese noodles inside the holes where my wisdom teeth used to be. Talk about annoying.
