Re: Wisdom Teeth

<font color="green"> I had all 4 of mine done about 3 years ago. I waited way too long, every one of them was impacted, 2 of them were almost completely within my jaw. I saw the pile of tooth peices after the surgery and it was just mound of fragments, the doc had to break all of them into little bits to get them out. Not fun I tried to go back to work the next day but was sent home since the pain killers were making me loopy. I took the next day off too and went back the following day, although I didn't answer my phone till the following week. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]</font color>

Re: Wisdom Teeth

Before I had mine taken out, I had an infection. Talk about pain. It was much worse then having them removed. However, I went under for the operation, while I was being sedated, something was going wrong with the laughing gas... all of a sudden about 15 people were in the room. I was so doped up I had no idea what was going on and I started to freak out. Then everyone in the room started laughing, then of course I started laughing , then BAM I am out. I was under for about an hour, and I can still recall being half asleep and hearing the crunching as my teeth were being yanked. Kinda weird.
However my wife did one of those exerpimental studies, she had all four impacted teeth taken out without any sort of anethtisa (sp?) At the time she didnt have insurance and she had to get them taken out.... anyhow she said it was a piece of cake.

Re: Wisdom Teeth

I never had mine pulled, but a friend of mine had 2 yanked. It didn't affect him at all, other than they bled a little for a couple hours.

Wisdom teeth removal seems to affect different people different ways [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]. I've had a couple buddies of mine go through terrible pain and have their heads swell to twice their normal sizes..he he...with lots of bruising [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. However, whatever they gave me, it worked like a charm, I don't rememeber a thing, had the two bottom ones pulled, and the top two had to be drilled out...no problem. That was on a Wednesday, and I was at the bar Friday night drinking beer with everybody else [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. They say its good to get the buggers out, as they crowd the rest of your teeth and may cause more problems down the road. good luck [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img].

Re: Wisdom Teeth

I've never had mine out cause I don't have any. My mom didn't have any either, so I guess I'm a mutant or something [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. My bro got his out a couple of years back and looked like a chipmunk for about a week or so. Good luck!
