i'm worried mine are plotting against me. Has anyone had them out?
oh god, this is going to be bad. They don't like taking them out anymore though :(
uhm...oh dear. One feels like it's split in half.
For two days i was pretty much disabled, but the pain went away after that.
it was revealed to me that I had a wisdom tooth growing sideways at the back of my mouth. I'm dreading it.
all of my wisdom teeth are impacted and, to make things more interesting, the roots are growing around the main nerve in my jaw. So if I do have to have them out (the left side were hurting like buggery last week) it'll be a major operation and leave me unable to eat solids for fucking ages! What a pleasant prospect...
But there's one which is completely sideways, growing in the bit that connects the top and bottom jaw at the back, nowhere near my other teeth. It looked really weird on the x-ray.
Also, have a :(.
it's alright. i had to have mine taken out when they weren't even hurting. had a pre-op when they asked me lots of questions and took xrays etc. then when i had them taken out i went under general anasthetic... so i waited round a lot and counted down from 10 to...er ... 7 and then i woke up and my teeth had gone. that was pretty much it. wisdom teeth are stupid.
i still need to get a filling tho.
all 4 wisdom teeth infected and 2 impacted when i was in berlin, moved back to the uk shortly after, after seeing my dentist and him going 'oh dear, ok you'll need an operation' had to wait 4 months on a list until it was done. had a general anaesthetic and, like shadyadie, viola they were gone. i saved up my codeines and got high for half a week. i also ate a full roast dinner the day after the op.
you'll be fine.
