Hardest decision ever...

Went to the dentist the other day and they found out that my two of my wisdom teeth are impacted (growing at an angle toward my other teeth) and I am going to have to get them cut out. Only problem is the dentist office that will put me to sleep to cut them out doesnt have an opening until September. However another office has an opening but they will not put me to sleep, they will just shoot me full of novocaine and NO2. So i have to make the desicion whether to wait a month to be put to sleep or go ahead and have it done. One of them is already coming thru and has gotten infected so I really dont want to wait but i really dont like the idea of being awake while theyre taking them out or being put to sleep. My cousin said they didnt put him to sleep and it wasnt that bad so Im thinking of going ahead and just getting it over with. What do u guys think?

If they can prescibe you something to make the pain bearable and keep it from getting really badly infected, I'd wait. From what I understand, when it's a routine extraction, being under isn't totally necessary, but for impacted teeth, I think it's more (and a longer, more elaborate procedure) than you'd really want to be awake for.

Either way,

And whenever you do it, make sure you've got a few bags of frozen peas on hand... they make the best ice-packs (days 3 and 4 you WILL be swollen).


(FWIW, I was totally out for mine... thank GOD!)

I had all 4 of mine removed at once. With novacaine and all impacted. I was 18.
It wasn't bad. The secondary infection i got from vomiting after the painkillers the night I had it done was much worse. I missed 2 weeks of school.
Anyhow its not bad....just do what they say afterward.

I got all of them out at the same time, only one was impacted... I was totally awake for the whole thing... Just Novacaine... Oh, and the two shots they put into the roof of my mouth were HORRIBLE.

It was kinda a neat experience really... First they use a mini-dremel looking thing to cut the tooth basically in half, then they use a Craftsman flat-head screwdriver to break it in half, then they pull it out... It makes a horrible sound and to get enough leverage for the guy to do it I felt like he had his knee in my chest... maybe he did...

I dunno, I had to tell them that someone was coming to pick me up afterwards, but fluck it... I rode my bike home... They ripped my ass at my follow-up visit...

Oh yeah, they also prescribed Percocets... none of which I took until I was healed and could properly enjoy them.

Don't be a puss, it's not that bad... I didn't even take the pain pills until I was completely healed.... Plus you can spit a ton of blood afterwards... Heh... In the CVS parking lot right afterwards when I was filling my script, I took off my helmet and spit a huge mouthful of blood onto the sidewalk... I looked up just in time to see a little asian lady like ... I just and went inside.
