wisdom teeth...I rather live without the wisdom you bring

They had a tendency to grow under my molars and now I have a minor, if not imaginary, cavity under my bottom left molar.

Other than that, had all 4 pulled out at once. They were relatively close to the nerve so I had a lot of swelling. Had to eat through a straw for a couple days. Just took a week off of school since I would be high on painkillers and I wouldn't have been able to answer questions/participate in classes.

All said and done, I kind of miss the annoying pain that they used to cause me. It was weird at first to have all that extra space in my mouth too. It just meant I could eat more at one time, I guess. Which explains the rapid weight gain going into college

Had them removed a few years back. Dunno what the dental surgeon slipped me, but that was a nice ride home.

Mine were growing in more-or-less sideways, so I had them removed several years ago. I couldn't chew well for awhile, but they really weren't that sore; I ended up not taking any of the prescription painkillers I was given.

One of mine is in, two of the others are on the way and the last just refuses to make an appearance. The ones that are coming in only do so every few months by just a hair, there isn't really pain just a little annoyance. Guess I'm okay with that.

I had mine taken out last year, all 4 at once and went under for the operation.

After I awoke, and the anesthesia wore off, I went through what I would call the 4 most painful hours of my life. But now I'm okay, and pain free!

DO THEM ALL AT ONCE IF YOU DO THEM.

Had mine removed when I was 15 or so. I was under, then on meds while awake. Other than the embarrassing swollen face for a day, I don't remember much.

Mine are starting to bother me. The bottom ones are scraping against my cheek and causing it to swell and it ends up hurting to eat. I've even had to insert tissue between the tooth and cheek because it would just scrape against the cheek even when I wasn't eating. Guess I'll be getting them removed soon.

My dentist (cute) told me that they were about to push on my molars and it would be almost time to remove them. She (cute) said that about a year ago and still no discomfort on my part. Hopefully, if it does come to that it won't be that bad.

had my top left one pulled out last October. it seems my mouth just wasn't big enough for me to brush back there properly so they got some bad cavities on the top, couldn't eat much or drink anything of any temperature because it kept bothering me, pain medication didn't help much either. I didn't get the gas just a couple shots to numb the area, just laid there watching spongebob while the dentist did his thing. the next day I was completely fine, no bleeding, no swelling, no pain other than my jaw being just a little bit sore. I still need to get my top right one pulled, but for the time being I need to save up some money.

Mine have been just fine except for the top left. It fell out last year, no problems since. They say the average American has lost 7 teeth by the time they get to my age, I've been lucky, only lost two...

Reading the posts on here and laughing how silly and ironic this is.

I never wanted my wisdom teeth removed. I was absolutely terrified and the pain was something I didn't want to experience.

Buuuut I was forced into it and let me tell you, IT WASN'T THAT BAD! One second I was awake, the next I'm knocked out and it was snoozeland. When I woke up I didn't feel a thing at all, no pain whatsoever. The only thing i'd be concerned about it the aftermath which is puffy cheeks and you can suck that up! Just eat lots of icecream and soup, the only pain you'll feel is some aching but nothing Tylenol can't handle.


So if the dentist recommends you to take your wisdom teeth out, just do it! =D

Mine have been acting up lately. I'll probably have to get them removed. Teething child is definitely the analogy I'd use for it. >m<
