    You have had surgery. That's way better than a doctor's note. You can indulge any stay at home fantasy you have ever had with that.

    redbull saidI had a friend that had his out...he woke up in the middle of the night, blood everywhere, almost passed out driving himself to the E.R. the dr said if he hadn't have woken up he probably would have bled to death...dont think I will be taking mine out anytime soon.

    I don't understand how that would happen. Did he not keep gause in his mouth until most of the bleeding stopped? If he was still bleeding heavily why did he go to bed instead of calling the doctor?

    As for me, this has been a much less traumatic experience than I expected. I've fretted it for years, but if I knew it was going to be this easy, I would have done it years ago.

    I had mine removed earlier this year. I ate a lot of soup for the first couple of days. It didn't hurt after about 4 days. Apparently my wisdom teeth weren't growing very awkwardly, so it was an easier process.

    In college...it was quite easy, fortunately. Slept pretty much all day when I got back from the dentist. Took a few pain pills the next day and a half. Avoided getting dry sockets. Was back operating normal about 2 days after. Stitches dissolved on their own.

    The half-assed Navy dentist broke one of mine and didn't get it all out and then for days afterwards I had bits of tooth working up and out of my gums.

    I got mine removed last Friday. Didn't hurt at all afterwards and I've been able to eat any food I want if it's cut up small to fit it in my mouth. Still can't open that wide

    I suffered a surgery the surgeon removed my 4 wisdow teeth... is pretty easy the hard part is after you need to take all your medicines in the right hour and sleep in a good form. the awful part is when you only have to eat soups all the days!

    had all 4 removed when I was 18, they had to use this motherfucking drill that was as thick as a dildo to get to one that had "grown inward" neck and cheeks were swollen green and blue for a week. was popping Tylenol-3's like M&Ms

    Broseph, why not set up a consultation with an oral surgeon. Ask about the advisability of taking them all out and also ask about having sedation while it is done. If they are all to come out at once, the sedation will be more than worth it and you will have less trauma because you won't remember the procedure.

    Broseph saidMy new dentist encouraged me to have my remaining 3 out, despite not having any issues with them, because "it will be worse if you do it when you're older." I'm still balking at that one but I'm told it's a common suggestion. If he wasn't also trying to sell me a slew of other services (that previous dentists hadn't) I would have taken him more seriously. I'm in a holding pattern of confusion now...


    I was SUPER reluctant to have mine out.
    The dentist suggested I have all 4 of mine out at once. I was all "um, why? they're not bothering me....no way, not doing it".......

    10 years later I wake up with a dull pain in my jaw like in the back and thought maybe cuz I was eating almonds the day before I had cut my gum chewing one....let it go for 3 days....finally the pain was unbearable and went to dentist.... my widsom tooth was trying to break through and had become infected. I could have died..... They were right! I was wrong.

    So, had to be put in a 10 day course of antibiotics because they could not perform procedure with an infection. Finally, got all 4 ripped out at once under sedation... It wasn't that bad.

    The hardest part was the week after. U wanna avoid dry sockets. Also, it's hard to eat and u generally feel a bit under the weather, but once the initial week was over...it was like whatevs i feel fine now. I was 28 when this happened.

    Be sure you get antibiotics for afterwards and to take them on schedule. Infections in the jaws are serious business.

    I removed my wisdom teeth on my own with a mirror and a spoon.

    Had all four taken out. No puffy cheeks. However, I was told I sure got a kick out of the laughing gas I was given...wish my dad filmed that. I'm sure it was a little something like this...

    Thanks. I just worry about infections and possible complications. It should be OK.

    I never had wisdom teeth. I guess that means that I'm not very wise.
