its a piece of cake... once they knock you out


What do they use? I know they give u an IV, but somebody said they use some spray to "freeze" your arm then then put it in and ur out. Is that real or BS?

Haven't had them out myself but i've heard it hurts like ****. I recommend you stack up on painkillers just to be prepared.

I didn't get knocked out, it wasn't bad at all.

Just take handfuls of ibprofuen and keep ice on it and you will hardly swell.

Don't talk, sing, use a straw, poke at your stitches, etc. or it will suck for you very badly.

I was better after 2 days, it all depends on the person.

i was gunna start this thread a week ago,. i got mine out 2 weeks ago. just clean out the sockets. or you will be in pain. get a food processor , cuz you will be blending up all ur food for a while. and get a lot of jello. that **** is amazing.
also dont forget to ice ur face. the swelling doesnt show for the first day. but if you dont ice it it will swell up like a bitch. i no this cuz i didnt ice mine. good luck lol

actuallyt, my drummer got them out and went fishing 2 hours later. We even had practice that night and he did pretty good considering the kind of pain he was in.

Its not bad at all, I got mine out last Monday and I'm completely back to normal right now. The only part I didn't like was the 5 hours or so afterwards when I couldn't feel my mouth. Other than that, though, it was easy.

I got mine out about a month ago. The worst part is just not being able to eat.

The first two days will be annoying more than anything else. Your spit's gonna be discoloured and crap from the blood and clotting. You also can't brush your teeth for few days so it'll taste and smell pretty bad.

The only real pain you feel is after the operation when you're recovering. Luckily for me, I didn't swell whatsoever. However, most people turn into chipmunks.

I think that's about it, really... It's not so bad.

for a few hours after the surgery youll be flying high... realy high, then start taking your pain killers because it starts to feel realy uncomfortable and it stays like that for a while. my one piece of advice is make sure you eat or drink protien shakes or something, i didnt eat anything for about 5 days and i blacked out while walking up a flight of stairs

Its really not a big deal. Just sick with the painkillers and (assuming its normal) you'll sleep a whoile lot. The actual procedure is simple and fairly quick

I got mine out last year. They put me under and I was drugged up for the rest of the day and i took some painkillers when necessary over a week period. Don't smoke for a few days if you do. And jello will be your friend for a couple days. If you do eat solid foods, make sure the sockets stay junk free or you can develop an infection.
EDIT: and yeah you'll be constantly spitting discolored saliva

They knock you out so the surgery is fine. I strangely don't even have any memory of leaving the office at all....

So the concensus is that its not that bad? Cuz when my sister got hers out, she was ****ed up for about a week.

EDIT: by the way, i think ill take a lot of fiber drink stuff so the painkillers dont screw me over... good idea?

I jack off onto store aisles, hoping some b*tch will slip and get prego. It's sort of a hobby of mine.

Actually wisdom teeth come in to give you a brand new set of molars at an older age. If your other molars are damaged with cavities, its better to pull them and let the wisdom teeth grow in.

My impacted teeth took 4 hrs and the local pain injection kept wearing off. The worst day of my life. I am sure yours will be better though.

I had two teeth pulled out a couple of years ago so i could get braces and its extremely uncomfortable. I was given two injections so the pain wasnt a problem but the dentist came at me with what was basically a set of pliers. Grabbed my tooth and just sorta started moving it in circles n then just ripped it out. Not sore at all and i was fine after the injection wore off. I could eat fine. You guys are all p*ssies or are maybe gettin it confused with getting braces which makes it sore as hell to eat for days

I almost died. It took three doctors to resuscitate me, THREE!


Wow what the hell did they do to you?
I have a feeling that will be me, because whenever i get a shot, im fine before it and during it, but 3-5 minutes after, i always pass out.

Maybe you never woke up, and you're still under the anesthesia, dreaming up every event in your life that's occurred since.

EDIT: Oh ****, would that mean I don't exist since I'm in your dream? FFFFFFFFUUUUUUU-
