If I was to get, say 4, wisdom teeth pulled, would I have to take pain killers?

It really depends on the person. I got all four of mine out at the same time. Not to mention that all four were impacted. I was in absolutely no pain.

so i would go with the pain killers.

unless you're into that whole
i-am-macho-i-handle-anything sort of deal.
then by all means, no
#4

It is not that I want to be macho, it is just I am in the military and there have been people selling medication so they will not give me any. I have the option to reschedule if I wanted to wait but I could just get it over with now.

I'll have to get it done in October probably if I were to reschedule. It won't be too long of a wait. I just want to know if it will put me out of service for awhile (pun intended).

From what I've heard it totally varies from person to person. I haven't gotten mine removed yet, but I know people who were agonizing for days afterwards and others that went out partying the night they had it done.

You don't have to take them. I ran out of pain pills after I had mine out and I went without them... for the 2 hours it took to get my prescription refilled. The pain made it hard to think and I nearly wrecked the car. But you don't HAVE to take them, if you enjoy agony.

I plowed my head into a concrete sidewalk while running at full tilt. My first reaction was to wipe the blood out of my eyes, turn to everyone and say "I'm fine!" A little pain doesn't bother me. But I was out of commision for several days after the surgery. Pills don't make me loopy but they do make me think slowly and I sure as HELL wasn't going to do without them unless I had to. So I didn't leave my house for four days.

I had mine (4 impacted ones) removed last wednesday and I havent taken pain medication for two days now. I took Lortab (sp?) for maybe three days and then switched to ibuprofen after that. I probably could've just taken ibuprofen from the start though. Also, I was out running around and play-sword fighting with my friends the day after. It hasn't been a big deal for me at all.

I got all four takin out, it was terrible, it hurt really bad and i didnt eat for 3 days.

Didn't have to remove mine yet, but my dad says it's pain from hell...

the worst thing about it imo is the taste of blood in your mouth all day.


haha, all my burps tasted like blood for two days after. However, I would say the worst part is not being able to eat solid foods for a few days after.

Get your teeth pulled out without anasthetic? ...get tae ****. lol

I had all four of mine pulled, without going under, didn't hurt at all until the last one, god... *shudders* Anyways, you'll be fine after about two days, and by fine I mean it won't hurt anymore, but your jaw will still be sore for awhile, meaning that you can't really open it all the way, so eat soft foods, and milkshakes!

Eh... might as well.
And yeah, it really depends.

Mine hurt a fair amount. I didn't get sick or anything like my sister, but I was sore for a week or two.
I'd just get some... just in case.

Well, usually if you're mouth is smaller they come in impacted and can cause problems. Luckily, I get free dental.

I'm debating whether to cancel or not. Maybe I can talk them into giving me some medication if not an entire weeks worth. I could just thin them out but I don't really want to miss much school from this ****.

Hi, I'm FtG. My wisdom teeth were pushing my teeth forward, misaligning my teeth as well as causing pain and discomfort. Now you know someone who needed them removed.

i think its a scam on the part of dentists working in cohorts with oral surgeons. they tell you, "well you might be fine to leave them in, but you could run into problems down the road if you dont remove them. and the younger you are, the easier the surgery will be."

its all a scam. same with braces.

No, braces my friend are not a scam. I am extremely thankful to my grandma for paying for mine.

Sadly, i'm getting into your situation...They hurt like a bitch. They will have to be removed, so you'll probably get some anesthesia or something. They wouldn't be complete torture monsters and rip them out without it.

there are instances where people need braces. there are instances where people need to have their wisdom teeth removed.

a majority of the time, its just a big hype by dentists and oral surgeons to make money. i was told all growing up that i needed to get braces. i never got them. my teeth turned out fine.

scam.

I'll get anesthesia, it is just the painkillers prescription I won't be getting after. Luckily, mine aren't hurting or causing any discomfort as of yet so I might wait it out.

get the pks and if you dont wanna take them, sell them.. theres always people lookin for some good painkillers.

u might just need them tho if your getting 4 removed
#36
It does vary, but you will probably need them for the first day or two afterwards at least, and it may or may not put you out of commission for a week or so.

I had mine out and I definatly had to take them. I would be very surprised if you didnt

Apparently, some people here have poor reading comprehension skills. I already stated I can't get the pain killers because they think I'll sell them, granted I wasn't in extreme pain and needed them. I'll probably just wait until I get another duty station at the end of August and schedule it there.

At least I can't deploy while needed this surgery.
