Share your pain!

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 23, 2012, 2:27 AM

Fun piece of irrelivent trivia about me. I have been feeling rotten for a while...turns out one of my wisdom teeth is infected and I now have to get all four of them removed.  :icontearplz: I have also opted for local anaesthesia and sedation so the recovery time is shorter :la: And I am a total wierdo and I will likely enjoy the procedure..

Share your wisdom teeth stories with me :eager: or anything dental? Was it under local or general? and how long did it take to recover?

I still have mine...I'm not usually very assertive at the doctors or dentists, and subsequently bad stuff tends to happen to me! But when the tentist started talking about taking them out even though they didn't look like they wouls cause any problems, I flipped out.

I got all four of mine pulled at once six months ago.

All I remember was the dentist talking about his son who goes to my high school. He was sitting in a chair next to me. Then I felt like I blinked and he had disappeared, so naturally I was confused as hell. Then I felt nothing on my face. And I was so very tired.

But as soon as the anesthetics wore off, the pain was incredible. I had to wait twenty minutes for my prescription, but I'm a baby about pain so it felt like death.

After the first day, it wasn't too bad. But you really CAN'T eat anything. Just liquid stuff. I lived on Jello and banana smoothies.

Now I hate banana smoothies :noes:

The end :D

i mostly only get drilled for cavities. but a lot of people call me crazy because, until my last one, i never let them numb me up because i hate needles more than i do drills. so i'd get my cavities drilled without being numb...and i never felt a thing :dummy: except for cold...but ah well. i'm actually going to wait as long as i can before getting my wisdom teeth removed...mainly because i'm sort of afraid to have teeth pulled...

The wast thign that's happend to me in the dentists, is when I chewed the side of my tongue raw whiel it was numb. I couldn't eat without complaining forhree days traight. XD

I have very straight teeth. Mom says I'm lucky. Now I jsut need to either brush my teeth more, or get back to chewin' gum like a religion.

The summer before I had braces I spent a lot of time at the dentist. I eventually got desensitized to the shots and the poking in my mouth. Then awhile after I had gotten my braces on, I was watching tv and I thought that my mouth felt strange. After some poking around I found that I had lost a bracket on one of my molars. So I went to the orthodontist and told them I had lost a bracket. Their response was "Uh, yeah, and like half of your tooth. Doesn't that hurt?" I had no idea, so for my birthday that year I got a major filling. It turned out I had a small filling on that tooth and underneath it had been rotting away. I suspect that it will eventually happen again.

I had every tooth in my mouth, aside from eight, pulled at once. I was given a local, and a strong relaxer, and so I was almost carried out the place. It wasn't at all :P Felt everything despite the pain killers.

Um, what are wisdom teeth? D;
Is it a fancy name for molar teeth? >n<;;

I had some blue coloring on top of my molars for the longest time and the dentists always picked at it. Even though they were the ones that gave it to me. I still don't know what they were for.
If wisdom teeth are molars, then I got some of them removed once. But I was a bit too young to remember much.. I think that's a good thing..

I might has to get a root canal in one of my molars >_< the dentist forget some of a cavity in my tooth and filled it. Well the cavity grew and i had to get the filling out and the cavity drilled out again and one of my wisdom teeth are growing in. :(
