stupid teeth!


I say get them removed. Although the recovery sucks, it is well worth it I assume. I lost a bunch of weight though from being able to only eat soups for a few weeks.


I'm5"2 and only 93 pounds :(I cant afford to lose weight

Well, not touch per se, but they're meant to come down close enough to each other to look like they're closed (though an underbite or an overbite will prevent them from touching). Mine close in a way that the gap is so big I can have my back teeth touch, yet stick a finger through the hole in the front. For most people their bottom or top front teeth would prevent anything from going through, and efficiently come down close to each other to aid in biting food, but I can't do that.

Luckily it's not much of a problem for me. I can eat and talk fine, and it's such a small problem that no one has ever noticed until I've pointed it out, but it's still strange. I always find it funny when someone says 'close your mouth... close-your-mouth' and I'll say 'But it is closed' and bite a few times to make a biting noise, but my front teeth won't be anywhere near each other. It's funny. I have a bit of an overbite too, but I think most people have it. It's so small it doesn't inconvinience me at all.

I might be in the minority, but losing mine was overall a good experience. It was a bit preemptive, so I wasn't having pain beforehand, the laughing gas was nice, and afterwards I just rested for a couple days with only slight numbness. I played a bit of baseball three days after the surgery (ah the good ol' days). Well, my mouth became more sensitive to cold water, but I adapted to it after a while.

I had both of mine pulled when I was 16 cause the roots were growing into my jaw. If they hadn't pulled them when they did they would have had to break my jaw :/

stupid teeth!

Mine totally hurt when they came in. I wasn't super cranky, but I was shocked by how much it hurt. That said - all 4 are still in my head & fit fine. I actually have more room to spare in my mouth...so there's that.

My bottom two wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning both are growing horizontally instead of vertically in so they are pushing my bottom teeth slowly together and the front ones overlap a little. They are very close to a major nerve or what I have been told. Apparently it is so bad that the army didn't want to remove my wisdom teeth for fear of partial paralysis in my face. They don't hurt whatsoever though so lucky there I guess.
