RIP

You won't be able to eat solids for about a week. And take the pain killers they give you. Otherwise you'll be dying of pain.

Everyone goes through it differently, but usually stay on the painkillers for a few days as well as aspirin, don't drink out of a straw, make sure you clean it out and keep it all from getting infected, and that's really it.

You don't feel a thing during the actual surgery, and just make sure you take some painkillers immediately before the anesthesia wears off.

I had one get infected while I was in Iraq.  They had just opened the dental facility so I headed over to it, and when I got there I discovered the only piece of equipment they had was the chair.  Now my jaw was so swollen that I couldn't open it enough to eat without a lot of pain so the tooth had to go.  Since they didn't have any of their tools they went down to the motorpool and got a pair of pliers, washed them real good, and with no pain killers of any type pulled the tooth out.  They didn't have anything to stitch the hole up with so they gave me some antibiotics and sent me on my way.  On the bright side I didn't have to get the flu shot the next day, yay!  +%$% hurt so much

^^ excellent advice.

The idiot who pulled my wisdom teeth out did a terrible job with the sutures so I didnt stop bleeding for well over a day.  On top of the pain I had to deal with the discomfort of having gauze in my mouth (which I had to change out regularly).  If your wisdom teeth are not impacted it should be exponentially easier and less painful.  If they are impacted and the doc has to cut to get to them, its a toss up as to how you will respond.  Mine got infected and it was quite possibly one of the worst weeks of my life.  My cousin on the otherhand was good to go a few hours after she got em pulled out.  Hell she even came out to the bar the same night she had her teeth removed (even though she didnt or couldnt drink).

Am I the only one who had hardly any pain and zero swelling when I got mine pulled!?

I was expecting worse, but it wasn't bad at all. Ur not allowed to eat solids for a while tho...

Only problem I had was that I previously had braces, and I think my wisdom teeth may have held them in place aftwerwards.

Once they got taken out, I noticed a gap coming in. Luckily I still had my retainer...all good now!




O and be sure to have one of your friends drive u home when ur all drugged up....I think I told my moms I smoked weed lol.

Its bad... Swollen face, blood at 1st in your mouth, not being able to eat solids for awhile, & a little bit of bruising (atleast for me). Lasts about a week.

Nah, the two I got pulled in the States weren't bad and both were impacted.  Dude had to really dig to get them out, but I went and got a burger immediately afterwards.

i got knocked out when i got mine. woke up a mess lol
demanding for a mirror to look at cuz my face felt so weird. drooling all over the place.

had to eat mashed potatoes, jello, apple sauce ect ect for about a week. got a prescription of vics too, only 500 mgs SMH

if you're a smoker RIP, whether its da Gange
or the tobaccy..sucking in can cause your stitches to pop. so no drinking out of a straw either.

i think i ate shrooms the night after i had em removed lol. my boys were blowing me shotguns since i couldnt smoke.

I had impacted teeth and had to get 2 of them removed, they put me asleep with i.v fluid when they removed them.

My mouth hurt for about 2 weeks but i think i had one of the bad cases since they put IV's in me.
