    I go Monday to get them pulled. I'm scared! Anyone care to tell me how bad this is going to be?

    I had them pulled when I was 20. Went fine, I had no pain at all and by the next day I was eating regular food. Apparently I am a rare case, but I real had no discomfort. But I do have very high tolerance for pain, so maybe you don't want to go by me.

    It'll be ok Synth, hang in there.

    It's nothing. I had all four pulled at once and all went fine. They sent me home with a bunch of gauze and painkillers and I never used any of it.

    Shitty thing is, I wish I'd kept those teeth.

    Don't worry about it, it'll be

    I had all four taken out a couple of years ago. After I went home I was supposed to get painkillers, but didn't get there until AFTER the novacane (sp) had worn off. Not cool.

    It was painful for the first day, but after that everything was fine. Wait until you hear the sound your teeth make when they crack as they're being taken out, Synthy.

    Ouch... LOL.

    I've heard good stories and bad stories, Synth. I always got the impression that the younger you are when you have it done, the easier it goes. Then again, I'm not speaking from experience.

    Good luck, though -

    I had all four of mine when I was 28, I had been putting it off for years. I was terrified of having those bad boys yanked, I let it go to long and two of them were comming in sideways and caused abses's(sp) so I had to have Root Canals also. Having my wisdon teeth out wasnt bad at all, my jaw was a little sore for a day but after that I was fine. I had very little swelling and discomfort. I had prepaired for it and rented movies and bought soup, ice cream, all kinds of liquid food, here is a hint - DO NOT EAT ICE CREAM!!! The cold hit the open wound's and I thought I was going to jump out of my skin!!

    My best freind had his out two weeks after I did and was in bed for 3 day's and looked like he had put baseballs in his checks.

    When I was 16 I picked a freind up from the dentist after he had had his pulled he was fine and made me take him through the McDonnalds drive through on the way home, no swelling or pain what so ever.

    I think it just depends on the person, some its bad some it doesnt fase.

    Part of that is true, when I had my WTP'd I had to cancel after I was down in the chair and they said something to the affect that if I had used narcotics the week before I would DIE. I was like WTF? Popped straight up out of the chair and had to schedule it for the next week. It so happened that YES I was up a few days the week earlier hammering out some new songs with my band. I never did hear that of the alchohol though? ...

    Btw Synth, it went fine nothin major.
    Whoever said to ask for sleeping antibiotics was right, you do not want to be UP when the pain rears it's ugly head.

    What's cool afterwards is when you have those holes in your gums and great big gobs of food get stuck in there and you can't get it all out. You take that little water squirter thingy they give you and you wash out some disgusting shit that's been fermenting in your gums for the past few days. Yummy!!

    no shit, some of u were not knocked out for this? wtf?!

    no worry synth, i had em all out and 6 hours later was running laps around the track, but my doctor's have always told me ai have a high pain tolerance.

    ur face is gonna swell up if you do not keep ice packs on it for the first 24 hours so make sure you do it. no ice though after the first 24 hours because then it has an adverse effect, u'll swell like a chipmunk! as far as pain, it will hurt some, everyone is different. i personally couldn't eat any hard foos for like a week, i lost like 5 pounds and i was pissed. one can only eat so much mased potatoes and protein drinks

    u'll get vicodin or perkasette; probably vicodin. and do not take any tylenol along wiht ur vicodin as vicodin already has acetaminophin in it.

    there, how's that synth?

    LOL

    Not a big deal, synth--just make sure they put you on cloud nine beforehand...

    My problem afterwards wasn't pain--it was bleeding. I bled for 24 hours straight. Went through about 96 pounds of gauze.

    I'll say a little prayer for ya', girlie...

    I had a couple of them pulled last month. It took the guy 45 minutes on one of them. I knew something wasn't right when I noticed the guy stretching his back in the corner of the room. I was awake. It didn't hurt but let me tell you,there is no way to deaden bone. CRUNCH, SNAP, CRUNCH. It echoes through your ears. The assistant held my jaw as he pulled so as not to break it. He said "hey even though the other two wisdoms are't giving you any problems you want me to pull them.?" I simply replied, MERCY.

    It didn't hurt, but damn I'll never forget that crunching sound.

    Hey, thanks to all you guys for the scoop! I'll make sure and tell them that I want to be passed out cold.

    JMJ, the part about losing 5 pounds sounds great, to me!

    Gobs of food stuck in your gums!? Well, I'll try not to eat any caramel corn.

    Guess I'll let you all know how it goes on Monday afternoon....

    I was knocked out for this.....

    they knock you out and talk to you (you're really awake but you don't know you're awake) but you never remember what they asked or what you say......

    Recovery isn't too bad,ls, as long as you don't get dry sockets

    Hey I din't think it was a big deal. I wasn't put out, but my Dentist gave me what he called a number 4 block in my mouth. I felt nothing put pressure. Then my Dentist asked to keep my teeth since they were weird an unique. I had funky roots or something. He gave them to his son to bring to dentist school. Just plan on taking it easy for a day or so. Don't over do it. I over did it at work yesterday at work, an most of you know what I did on friday. ......I popped a blood vessel and bruised uup again down there. REST REST and more REST.
