Well i am mostly ignorant on the subject of having a wisdom teeth removed or not but i would guess if it caused you pain and continues to you should most likely remove it although the dentist is pretty scary due to many reasons.

My dentist kept insisting that I would need to take my wisdom teeth out, but he's been saying "they're going to start hurting soon" since I was 17. I'm 21 now and I still don't feel a thing, and until I do, I ain't gettin' 'em out. He's said I may not need to, so I'm like; "K, if I don't need to, I ain't."

It's not so much the surgery bullshit that has me not wanting to, but the pain afterwards.

I don't have any. I was born without them/they never formed. I guess I'm a lucky one.

A fuck. Planning to get mines removed soon. Right now, I'm worrying about the payment. I'm very stingy, that's why it'll take some time to let go.

I should be more worried about the pain, right?

I don't know what the pain would be like.

I only had one set of wisdom teeth (my bottom), my top never grew in. I had to get them removed and four other premolars because I needed space in my mouth for my teeth to shift because I was getting braces. Literally, I don't remember anything. It didn't hurt. And when I got them out, didn't hurt afterwards! Most people I know go through a bad experience but nope, not me.

Nope and I still have all 4 my dentist said I can keep them in as it's fine ^^

Getting my wisdom teeth out was a huge pain figuratively and literally. But it did get me out of playing at band practice for a week or 2 so there's that.

I have 3 but they are not fully erupted. They usually don't bother me but sometimes my lower left one will ache during the winter.

Wisdom teeth are a drag, had mine out because they didn't fully come in. It was a fun experience let me tell you, most fun i had ever. Once that numbing wears off you have 2 choices deal with the pain or have fun being loopy. I chose the first one at the time...yea it was pleasant.

I'm 33 and just had mine pulled last year.

They were impacted, I let them go let them go.

The cracked and broke because of the pressure buildup.... I let them go.

Then they got infected....

I contacted an oral surgeon. He said two weeks till he would see me.

Two week goes by. they get worse. I try everything to numb and kill the pain. I end up having to take a trip to the emergency room where they gave me a penicillin and vicodin script and a $700 bill (no insurance) The oral surgeon says that there was a mixup and the surgeon needs to go to a funeral so it'll be another week.

A week goes by, and the oral surgeon sees me. He takes a look, says it looks fine, but take more penicillin and vicodin and a bill for $450 and he'll work on them in a week.. This is 4 weeks of not getting my teeth fixed, and I've had about $20 in penicillin and vicodin, but have paid about $1200 for it.... (there were a few xrays in that too though)

A week goes by, I come in, I get the remains of the teeth popped out, and it's done with four shots of novacaine and ten minutes of prying. No stitches, a wad of cotton to cover the bleeding and told to press down on it firmly and no solid foods or no straws for a few days. I also get another $700 bill and a script for... you guessed it: more vicodin.

I didn't take much of the pain killers at any point. The penicillin was crucial though. The pain the infection caused was beyond absurd. The pain on my wallet was OBSCENE....

but, in the end it was better off without them than with. I wish I had done it much earlier though I feared the costs. I also know that prices had risen steadily throughout the years, so if I had it done earlier, it would have been far cheaper.

I dunno if I feel less wise for having them taken out... To be honest I actually feel much wiser

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.


So uh.... Kinda weird question here....

ummm... your dentist.... Was she cute?

Are wisdom teeth causing you pain and making you as cranky as a teething child?

stupid teeth!


Had my first one yanked while in the army the dentist wasn't using enough lidocaine his assistant caught on before he got much further than the first twist on the tooth. Glad she did I didn't want to go to the stockade. The other three came out in a grand total of 30 minutes 15 to numb me up good and 15 to pull them the dentist was impressed. So was I, my mom was disgusted took 4 hours for one of hers.
