The teeth are gone. Only one was a wisdom tooth. The reason why they had to take the other non-wisdom tooth out is a sort of a long story, but basically six years ago when I had braces and was at the height of my orthadontal work, my right-most bottom tooth was sideways, lateral, and it just had to be removed for the rest of the teeth to align. Well, the matching top tooth for the one that got removed six years ago, was difficult to keep clean because it hasn't had a bottom tooth to rub up against for six years. So it came out.

I think he stitched up one of the extractions, but not the other.

The painkillers work, but they also wear out. My mouth is now screaming for more.

And being put under beats just having your mouth numbed any day of the week.

I'm not sure if your dentist/oral surgeon told you to do this--I'm surprised at the number who don't--but to prevent dry socket, rinse your mouth with warm salt water periodically. It will make your experience a lot more pleasant until it heals.

And yes, the one that was cut out of me was a lot more miserable than the open sockets. Thank goodness I only had one that needed to be cut out.

I had major oral surgery 6 days before Christmas 6 years ago. My face was a balloon and I couldn't eat solid food for a month afterwards.

The results, though, made it worth it.

That's brought back another memory...yep, I remember doing that (It must have been after having the teeth out. I wouldn't do it for any other reason would I?). didn't enjoy that part of the experience either.

The being reassuring about it thing isn't working is it?

feel better namkcur!!
easy on the pain pills, they'll make bathroom time not much fun if you know what i mean.
ice packs also help when the soreness kicks up.
know the icepack, love the icepack.

I had all 4 pulled in August and while I was in some pain, It was so friggin' uncomfortable. Percocet is my best friend ever!

And the rockin edge is right. Take your time eating and go slow with chewing. It'll just hurt like a mofo and you'll want to kick yourself. I suggest baby food, popsicles, ice cream (vanilla because you can't see blood if you eat chocolate...sorry for the visual) and also have lots of paper towels handy. I drooled all over the place...it was so sexy!

Hope all goes well!

Ugghhh I feel your pain! I still have all 4 of my wisdom teeth. The top ones came in perfectly though so it's my choice to get them pulled or not. However,down on the bottom they are impacted and grew in horizontally. Pushing on my other teeth so once I get them out my teeth can have more room. Have no dental insurance though so Ive been paying my dentist out of the pocket! Talk about getting EXPENSIVE! Would just love to get the wisdom teeth over with but oral surgeons aren't free,lol.
