Wisdom tooth removal on the 17th :( - Page 2

post #31 of 37
I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed at one sitting. Believe me that hurt alot less than the two tattoos I got!! (now those hurt!) Many people love to share "horror" stories, but really the worst part is the post-op discomfort for the next few days after the surgery. Then you are home free!

I've never had to have wisdom teeth taken out. The dentist says I don't even have any signs of any wisdom teeth!

You'll do fine! Don't worry and just follow the doctor's instructions!

Everyones experience is different Cougar. Just try and relax, most likely it will be fine and you'll recuperate in a few days or so.

I had my 4 out when I was 16. I went under anesthesia so I felt nothing. The few days after were painful, but manageable w/ some ibuprofen or tylenol. And within a week or two I was back to normal.

Good luck!

JasmineCat, its good to know its not 12 shots! Thanks for informative posts
Caprice, you woke up in the middle of the sugery? Did you feel any pain?
I think I might be able to take another shot in the mouth if they blindfold me, and strap my head to a table.
I hope it turns out easy for me.
On the topic of Nitrous Oxide. Is that the same stuff you can add to your car? So if I could tap a 12lb. bottle of it, I could numb myself before the sugery

Thanks everyone, Im starting to feel better about it already.
Ill keep you up to date,

When I woke up, I didn't feel anything except the affects of the anethsia wearing off. I started to cry because it freaked me out, but I was ok and out again once they gave me another shot. I was not very happy with going through it though. I am sure you will be fine. Everyone has different side effects, you sound like a strong person--so you'll be ok!

(not that being molested is funny, it isn't...but thought this comment was... )
