Getting My Wisdom Teeth Out...

Postby BaseballFann0008 » Mon Jun 09, 2008 8:14 am

About to leave in a hour or so to get all four of them yanked. Any tips? suggestions? How long does it take to recover?

some people are really sore for a week, some people feel fine except for some general discomfort for a day or two. They'll give you a few days worth of happy pills though.

I would just stress the rinsing of your mouth with salt water. One of my friends was lazy about it and ended up with dry sockets(I'm sure they warned you of those), whereas I rinsed every time I ate and had no longterm problems.

I had a chessesteak for lunch the day I had mine taken out. They weren't impacted, so I wasn't in much pain, though it was a little sore. It took me a while to get used to eating though, I used to use them to eat and I bit my cheeks constantly.

Definitely rinse as mentioned already.

I never had wisdom teeth...neither did one of my parents. I guess some people are just more evolved than others... ;-7

Its not that bad, the best is waking up after going under.

And each person reacts differently. Some bleed a lot and are hurt for 6 days, some are fine after a day and ready to go.

Mine were hurting like hell before I had them taken out (pain pills helped though ;-D ). I didnt go under, just took the shot, and didn't feel a thing. I also had a great doctor who game me any meds I wanted, which worked out nice. DO follow their instructions though! My wife is a dental hygenist, and she had some nice horror stories to tell me. 8-o

I had wisdom teeth (and had them removed) but I only have one central incisor on my lower jaw. Most folks have two.

I had 6 wisdom teeth and they were all impacted (two extra on top). I don't really remember the two days after. Be sure to ice to keep the swelling down and keep your head elevated. And make sure to rinse like they say cause you don't want dry sockets.
