Just been told I have to have mine out

Any experiences? How much did it hurt? How long did it take to recover? Am I gonna have to live off ice cream for a week?

I had a friend get one of his sockets infected even though the surgeon did everything right and he followed all the directions.
He died 3 days after the surgery.
The places where they take the top teeth out are really close to your brain and some of the blood vessels there travel directly to your brain. If they get infected, the bad blood starts rotting your brain. You're dead before they can find out whats wrong.

Mine haven't moved even a bit in a couple years and probably won't be moving any time soon.

Lucky for me, they're in a spot where I can just ignore them.

If they're impacted, you're in for a hell of a procedure. If not, it's probably not going to be too bad. When I had mine out, I just walked out of the office and went immediately back about my business. I took large doses of ibuprofen for two days, and felt fine after that.

Mine aren't moving. They came in 3 years ago, the bottom two are just at crazy angles so I can't brush them. I need them out coz they're basically just starting to rot. Top ones come out because there's no point having them with no bottom ones.

Your dentist would tell you. Are they going to knock you out and then chisel them out of your jaw? They're impacted.

Are they just going to numb you well, then yank them out and clean up the sockets? Not impacted.

Ah I see. I'm going for an x-ray Friday so i guess I'll find out then.

I'm hoping for the second...

At least you'll probably get some of these

Doubt it. I had three taken out and once they are out there is no pain. There is just like a 2 or 3 day period where your mouth has gauze in it. It's a good idea to have them taken out over the summer or winter break if you're still in school.

Do they hurt all the time, especially when you chew or bite? If not, then they probably aren't impacted. The bottom ones might be because of the odd angles.

I got all 4 of mine cut out when I was 15 or 16. It took about an hour, and the worst part was not being able to move my jaw but an inch or so for the rest of the day. EAT BEFORE YOU GO Make sure you have yogurt, applesauce, oatmeal, etc. for when you get back.

I suggest you get whoever is taking you to go and give the pain prescription to a pharmacy while they do the procedure, and ice your face when you get back home (I alternated 20 mins on each side for an hour or so) to reduce the swelling some. Beyond that, as long as you do what they say and don't drink out of straws or smoke anything for a couple days you should be back to normal within a week.


EDIT: ^ I've never had oral surgery where they didn't give me at least some 5mg hydrocodone. I'm pretty sure they gave me 10's for my wisdom teeth.

Nah they never hurt. They're not even uncomfortable so it's sounding like it should be ok.

Thanks for the tips though, I'll definitely keep them in mind.

It was fine for me. The tranq was very cool ha ha ha.

The first few days you go through some discomfort (not horrible) and you go through a bunch of bloody bandages no biggie. Just sleep it off.

I actually enjoyed eating yogurt, pudding, apple sauce, and jello for a couple weeks. Good stuff.

I just got to chill on the couch and watch a Lord of the Rings marathon on tv all day while my mom made me food, then was fine by the next day. It was pretty nice. I didn't even have to use any of the Vicodin they gave me either.

do not eat before you go. they told me i cant have any food or liquids for 6-8 hour prior
#34
All of mine were impacting and I had to have them removed and have steroid stuff injected in my jaw. It was probably the most painless procedure I've ever had. Just make sure you don't bite your tongue while you're still under anesthesia because that hurts the most! It probably takes about a week and a half to recover and you'll probably want to be eating mushy food during that time. Good luck!

If you're just getting a local, then you can eat. If they're going to actually put you under, then you'll have to fast. GA's can cause vomiting, so you're better off having as little as possible in your stomach before getting one, as you'd be quite likely to get some of it going down the wrong tube, and set up an infection in the lungs.
#36
Somewhat related, I broke my jaw right where my bottom left wisdom tooth was. The tooth went down into the break forcing it open, it also gave me quite extensive nerv damage.
After the operation I couldn't feel a thing, mmm morphine. Everything healed without incident.

Related: I had the other two taken out about 6months ago. I elected to get put under on the dentist chair as they were compacted. The whole thing only took about 15minutes but about three weeks to heal. My diet consisted of two different types of pain killers, antibiotics and laxatives to try stop the antibiotics from making me constipated.

EDIT: anyone know how to post photos on here from an iPhone?

I was worried about the pain after I had mine out, but it wasn't bad at all. You don't remember falling asleep before the procedure, and you're totally and utterly out of when you emerge. The worst thing about wisdom teeth removal isn't pain, it's not being able to eat regular food. You'll be on a liquid diet for a week to two weeks, and it really, really sucks.

My best advice is to line up some of your favourite shows on your PC/TV, have the painkillers ready (they make you feel amazing) and just sleep a lot. Also, drink a LOT of water.

I've had one taken out. It wasn't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

I have one that has pretty much adjusted into a normal position, and one that is still under my gums.

What the fuck happened to your janitor powers?


My wisdom teeth have barely popped through in my mouth (just a little around the corners of them) but they don't really give me any problems. Not only that, but I don't trust myself with not smoking for the time it takes for my mouth to heal up.

Took me over a week to recover from getting my bottom teeth out.

Took 4 hours to get over my top one.
