    Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I'm getting all four of my wisdom teeth out tomorrow, and I am not excited Two have erupted and two are impacted. I'll be heavily sedated so I shouldn't remember anything (I wouldn't have it any other way), so at least the procedure should be a breeze.

    Anyone else had theirs out already? How'd it go? Any words of encouragement?

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    Its OK. I liked getting drugged up but once it wears off it sucks. It takes about a week before you can eat real food again and a couple of months before you forget about them totally.

    My advice: Enjoy the Drugs!

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I wasn't knocked out when I got mine out, which ....sucked. Actually it wasn't as bad as I thought but still not fun obviously.

    I was fine within a couple days (thanks to the painkillers) but it definitely took awhile for my mouth to feel normal again.

    Pudding becomes your best friend. Had mine out a long time ago so I dont remember much. Of course the drugs help with that.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I had mine taken out and it wasn't really all that bad. I was drugged pretty well to not feel the pain but was awake enough to hear the cracking of teeth cause the dentist had to break them to get them out. I had ice cream instead of yogurt. Soft foods for awhile but after couple days I was ok.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I just had novocaine when mine were done. My regular dentist did it, not a specialist. My situation was similar to yours--two impacted, two straight down. Sucking on bloody gauze isn't fun, and it took me a couple of weeks before I could eat "most" normal food without worrying about it. IIRC I had a second job interview in Cincinnati a week or two after I had it done... The guy couldn't believe I was out there.

    I laughed.

    I haven't had mine out yet but my dentist keeps insisting I do so. Mine aren't impacted and are actually about two-thirds of the way in. Considering that I think the procedure would probably be cake but it just doesn't sound like a lot of fun.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I had mine out over spring break, wasn't too bad. I just ate Frosty's from Wendy's for a week.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I had all of mine taken out about 3 years ago. The messed up my stitches and I had to go back in because the bleeding wouldn't stop. First two days after sucked, but it got better pretty fast after that.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    Had mine taken out at 7:00 a.m. in the morning, barely remember the car ride home, woke up about 4:00 pm, spit the bloody gauze out and was drinking beer by 7:00 that night. I still have the 20 pain killer pills they gave me, anybody know the street value for them :-)

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    It took me three weeks to eat regular foods without getting food stuck in the cavaties. The younger you are the better! I'm not young anymore and they hurt like hell. I had dry sockets and they were horrible. Alot of painmeds, beer and Motrin.

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...

    I blew up like a chipmonk and was out of commission for a while. Because of the way they had to dig them out my top gums were sensitive for about 8 or 9 months. This doesn't happen regularly but don't flip out if a spot or two is still bothering you in 2 or 3 months. Sometimes it can take a year to get right. Boooooooooo

    Re: Getting wisdom teeth out...
