    OT: Wisdom tooth removal.

    Going to the dentist tomorrow, Wondering if it hurts

    I noticed it started to hurt on the bike in the morning to school. When i got off class, It started to grow throw the top layer of my gum.

    I couldnt ride today cause everybump makes the tooth grind into the gum i cant close my mouth.

    this sucks.

    Had all four of mine taken out 13 years ago. Was knocked out for the surgery (they were cut out, not pulled). The jaw was sore for a week or so, but the meds helped with that. It's not fun, but it's survivable.
    There's nothing for you to see here...just move along, now...

    When i broke my joint in my thumb, They just put some stupid plastic thing on it and said dont bother trying to move it for 6months.

    They exrayed it and asked how the hell did this happen?

    In my thumb i cracked my joint down the center and and crossed again so it made a T on my joint,

    I broke it cause i caught a football running forward and i feel onto the grass and my thumb landed on a rock or something.

    Right now my tooth is killing me. im using advil D: not working

    It's not that bad. I got all four of mine out under general anesthesia. It didn't hurt that bad afterwards... the worst part was my jaw being really tired from holding the gauze in.

    Got my three out four years ago. Didn't even need the post-op vicodin. Just be sure to keep those mfers clean; possibly the worst pain i've ever endured was three weeks later, when one of the sockets got infected. I had this racquetball-sized lump stuck in my cheek and the gf had to drive me, in tears, to the ER at 3AM.

    Oh, and try not to turn into this guy:

    I had 3 wisdom teeth removed all at once. the oral surgeon just gave me a red valium that I took 30 minutes before my appointment, and then wacked me w/ some novicane. it only took about 7 minutes from start to finish. the sizable holes in my gums didnt hurt so much but appearantly I have a small mouth and my surgeon has hands the size of shaq because he streched my mouth open so far that it ripped in the corner. I have a scar on the inside of my mouth now from it. the other pain I felt was the $700 bill my insurance company sent me, and I have the good dental plan!!! total was over $1300.

    It is not too bad.

    I was knocked out for mine, then drugged up afterwards.

    I had to up my dosage, though, because prescription pain killers are like LOLNOTGOINGTOWORKFORYOU.

    I am going to have to get my wisdom teeth out soon. I am surprised that I have gone all through high school and this long (3 years) through college and not had a problem. They don't hurt at all.


    BUT pretty soon my health insurance will change, and I want to "get it while it's still cheap."

    Go to the dental section of a full-service drugstore, like Rite-Aid.

    Get a bottle of clove oil and a bottle of mouth wash with hydrogen peroxide such as Colgate Peroxyl.

    After the bleeding stops, gently wash the surgery site with the clove oil, using a Q-Tip.

    If you get dry socket ( an empty hole with no blood clot in the socket) use the Colgate Peroxyl very gently, without swishing or forcing anything into the socket, and follow up with gentle washing with the clove oil.

    The clove oil will address the pain.

    Clove oil has a remarkably strong taste, and the intensity of the taste makes it mildly unpleasant; but much less unpleasant than the pain of a dry socket.

    Use the Q-Tip to keep the clove oil in and on the dry socket and off of the rest of your mouth.

    If you don't get dry socket, ignore all of the above.

    If you DO get dry socket, the above will save you a lot of pain.

    If you have insurance that covers the op, get them out now. When i got mine extracted there was no pressing need aside from the fact i was about to lose my dental plan.

    Removing it won't hurt thanks to anesthesia, but that's a girl's way out, man up and have the dentist skip the anesthesia and use pliers instead. Anyways, I had mine removed before. It does not take that long, compared to a filling. First the dentist would use anesthesia, 2 kinds (well for mine anyway), one that is applied directly via brush and another via injection to the gums, the dentist would first cut around the gums and then use a lever between the tooth and your jawbone and lever the tooth out. Afterward, stitches will be used to close up the spot the tooth was; they do not need to be taken out, they'll be made from self disintegrating tree resin.

    Your mouth will be swollen. Swelling depends on how many are taken out and how skilled the dentist is.

    Try some over the counter orogel in the mean time? Should run you up about $5 - 6.

    Try a different dentist.

    Get that critter out of your mouth while you have money, insurance and your health.

    I had all four of mine taken out at the same time, under local anesthetic. It was a... "memorable" day.

    Afterward,the dentist told me "next time, don't wait until you're 40 years old to get this done." Apparently, the older you get, the harder they are to pull. More time to lock in place, I guess.

    My two lower ones were removed when I was in my early teens. Both were badly impacted and they had to jackhammer them into pieces to get them out. My jaw was swollen shut for a week. I still have nightmares from that experience. My two upper ones never developed and are still there causing no problems. I've still got all but one of my regular teeth and one implant. Right now, I've got no dental insurance until I go on Medicare in June, so I'm fortunate not to have any dental issues.

    I had a awful experience getting my teeth out. I was in so much pain that the drugs they prescribed me on top of advil and tylenol didn't in take the edge off of the pain. I mean, the experience is different for everyone, I know people that were fine a couple days later but it took me a month for the pain to go away.

    I had all 4 of mine cut out after they were all impacted. I was under general anesthesia and really throughout the recovery and all felt little to no pain. Just minor discomfort from being swollen and having the stitches in my mouth. This is a procedure that if done by the right surgeon, has been done hundreds of times. Therefore, its nothing more than routine and has been made to be as painless as they can make it. It really isnt anything to be worried about. Just follow doctors orders and keep your mouth clean after surgery to prevent any infection from screwing things up.

    The problem you are experiencing is called Pericoronitis. The condition develops when a flap of gum (technical name is "operculum") covering the wisdom tooth (third molar) becomes inflammed.

    Two ways of treating this condition: Operculectomy (cut away that flap of gum), or surgical extraction of the wisdom tooth. If the oral surgeon is real busy and needs to triage the cases so he can treat people with more serious problems than yours, he will most likely opt to do the operculectomy (which is fast to do). If he has time, he might opt to do the surgical extraction.

    Local anesthesia is good enough IMHO for the extraction. A well-placed injection of Lidocaine right next to where your mandibular nerve goes into the jawbone in the back will numb up the whole side, and you won't feel pain at all during the extraction.

    And just follow the oral surgeon's post-operative instructions and you should be able to avoid the painful dry socket (the technical name of the condition is alveolar osteitis, and requires professional treatment-- Don't rely on OTC meds if that happens to you). Avoid smoking, drinking, spitting or sucking through a straw. Those are the activities that will dislodge the blood clot and cause the painful dry socket.

    Good luck.
