Since I haven't posted around here in ages, I thought I'd delight you all and complain at you with my recent experience of having my wisdom teeth out! It happened this morning, and I was paranoid about waking up from the anesthetic at the wrong time, but when I woke up it was all done and I hadn't felt a thing. I have to make sure to eat mushy stuff; no crunchy stuff for me. But it's not so bad - they weren't impacted, I just didn't have enough room. So here goes a couple days of eating broth and soft stuff, and taking painkillers and making sure I don't bleed! I bet a bunch of you have had yours out - what was it like? What did you eat? I got all four out, how about you? biggrin.gif

How odd! I had my only filling put in this morning. The result of biting a granite table while under the influence of too much bourbon...

Had a local anaesthetic jammed into my mouth from a 2inch long needle (which came out BENT) and then proceeded to have plasticy goodness shot into the cavity. Fun stuff!

Half my face paralysed and I've been slurring words like a redneck all day. How charming. smile.gif

OK, not quite wisdom teeth but it was a strange experience for me and I wanted to share. smile.gif

When I was about ten or eleven I still had lots of my milk-teeth, so the dentists decided that I should have them removed to make space for the new ones that were supposed to grow... One slight snag, I had 20 teeth at the time, and 9 were milk-teeth so they were going to take out half my mouth!

The day before I went in one of the teeth came out by itself, but I still had 8 removed at once. I was eating soup for days. The irony is, even now I'm an adult I still am about 9 teeth short of a full set (not that there's really enough room in there as it is. I must have a small jaw, or something).

So there you go: (very nearly) half my teeth at once. Beat that! biggrin.gif

I had to have four teeth out for braces, but they injected me with anaesthetic 8 times! It made me laugh a lot though, I'm not sure why. It hurt horribly but the anaesthetic was very funny. And then I tried to drink afterwards, which didn't work at all and all the water just poured out of my mouth!

To be fair, we don't slur, we're just not in a hurry to talk.

I've yet to get my wisdom teeth removed, but they are coming in. Only on the top, though. I look forward to it.

One thing to look out for when you get injected in your mouth is to try not to dribble. When I got some of my teeth out for braces, I went out with a white t-shirt and came back with a red one >_>

Yeah, when I took a nap I ended up with some blood leaking out. But it's mostly stopped now, thank goodness.

the only odd thing i had to deal with was getting my teeth pulled for my braces, having 2 cavities filled, and receiving my braces all in the same day. *blinks* i dont think they are supposed to do that.


but it was great walking around looking like a fish for the day.

I had to have 8 adult molars removed to have my braces put on. I have a REALLY small jaw and my teeth were REALLY crowded. I also had to have all of my wisdom teeth removed. And that's just the most recent teeth I've had out.

Three quarters of my baby teeth were taken out by my dentist, albeit one at a time. I just didn't have enough room for everything to be there at once, so as my molars and adult teeth came in, he would pull out an old tooth or two. But until I had those 8 molars removed, the most teeth I'd had taken out at once was 4 (two adult teeth came in at the same time and my dentist yanked the two baby teeth on top).

I had a wisdom tooth out last Friday. I lost it at the front desk when I was paying for it, and nearly passed out. Had to have a lie down in the waiting room for a half hour, then get the receptionist to call Mrs Jonman and ask her to come pick me up.

The poor bloke who was after me walked in to see me, white as a sheet, layed out on the waiting room floor - can't exactly have inspired confidence in him, but there you go.

Yikes! I've fainted before at a doctor's - stood up too fast after a blood test, and passed out in the waiting room. Because it was the waiting room, though, they called the paramedics, citing some reason that I don't remember... anyway, my father said none of the doctors would look at me. Odd. Anyway, hope you're feeling better.

My gums don't even hurt anymore - took a little less than a week to heal; I'm very happy. biggrin.gif

Your mouth is the fastest place to heal in your body. I think it has something to do with increased blood flow there.

I had my wisdom teeth out when I was 16 and it was a very strange experience. I got knocked out and I remember right before I fell asleep that pretty little dots were coming down from the ceiling and talking to me. I also remember waking up and being strapped down to a bed and feeling very freaked out. They had strapped me down so I wouldn't roll off the bed and hurt myself, but it's still strange to wake up and be unable to move.

I remember I couldn't use the vicadin (sp?) they gave me for the pain because it made me ill (found that out again after having a cist removed from under my tongue) and that I got to have lots and lots of yummy sherbert. The thing that really sucked about it though was the fact that my right half of my chin has yet to wake up from the surgery and it's 11 years later now.

It's been way too long to sue and besides you sign a paper before you go in for the surgery literally signing your life away. You have to check all these boxes that say "The doctor is not at fault if such and such happens" of which death is included, then you sign it. It's not a big deal the only thing it really affects is whether or not I know if there is food on that side of my chin.
