FINALLY got them out. wasn’t half bad as I thought it would be. the swelling was crazy but it wasn’t that painful. I didn’t even take any of the heavy meds I was prescribed. I got sick of jelly and mashed potatoes REAL quick. 5 months on and I still have holes in my gums. I’ve been told they never really fill in :( 21 months ago

The lower 2 are impacted into my jaw and the upper 2 are touching my sinuses. All in all, with insurance I will be paying $1360 out of pocket. Oy Vey. 21 months ago
My dentist surprised me by taking them out.
Dentist: So, we’ve discussed those wisdom teeth before, haven’t we?
Me: Uh… Yeah?
Dentist: Well, we’re going to take them out today.
Dentist: Oh, don’t worry, you don’t need a ride home, we’re just going to use local anesthetic. 2 years ago
Yet another cancellation! Was meant to get them out in January, that’s now been moved to May. That’s 3 cancellations now… it seems like I am seriously not meant to get them out! 2 years ago
I was meant to do this in January and it got cancelled, and then I was meant to do this on Monday and it got cancelled. so now that it seems to be an unreachable goal, I feel it must go on here so that the day I finally do it I have the added joy of crossing it off on here :) 2 years ago
it was pushing down on my lower right one. 2 years ago
I used to joke about it and call it “the hole with the teeth around”, but then it started to hurt awfully and I had to remove it.
What’s worse, it really left a hole, leavin the nerve of the nearby teeth uncovered, so it started to hurt like crazy too!
In all the pain I was lucky: my doctor has little hands so he managed to just devitalize it (it is in a difficult position to operate) instead of removing it too. 3 years ago
