    Hopefully mine too.

    I still have mine and hope I will keep them. Dentist work of any kind is not my cup of tea.

    I had braces on for 3 years but they never talked about extracting them. Maybe it's because I don't have all of them yet(almost 16).

    Thanks soo much for ya'lls words of incouragement and all. Sounds like some of you have had terrible times with your wisdom teeth.

    For the record, I had all 4 taken out. My gums where they are all stitched up feel like a big gummie bear. The swelling is at a maximum right now (I like to think :P )

    I got those out my senior year of high school. I had this thing at the time about not getting knocked out. So I was awake during the whole thing. Only nitrous oxide. So I thought it was pretty funny. Like cracking walnuts thats all.

    I don't envy you at all! I can still remember when all four of mine came out. They tried to knock me out but my veins would collapse when they tried. Thank God for Percodan. I was popping one an hour each time I changed the gauze. A couple of them had to be broken apart to get out and I was having bone/tooth chips pushing through the gum for weeks afterward.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Mine came in perfectly too, but a couple of years ago they started shifting around and causing stress (ie: pain) on the other teeth...wound up having all of them yanked at once....thankfully I had them knock me out.

    What are the widsom teeth? And why do ppl get them removed?
    The wisdom teeth or third molars are some teeth that grow at age 17 to like 20. They are located in the deepest corner of the mouth, aside the second molars. They can remain asymptomatic for lifetime, but most people find they have no space for them, or that they are coming twisted, so they extract them.
    thats what it was then ... new teeth growing at the corner of my mouth. Ive been wondering why the heck it was doin that or whether thats normal or not. thanks, hopefully i dont have to get them removed.

    Had 2 lower wisdom teeth removed a few years ago under a general anasthetic. Saw an x-ray before they were removed and were very impacted and growing horizontally along the gums forcing other teeth to become displaced.

    I was out for about an hour and woke up with a mouth full of padding which was soaked in blood. The holes left were stitched up although I did pull one side out after a few days when brushing teeth.
    Back,shoulders, neck ached for a week and I was signed off work for 2 weeks, face was very swollen and yellowish from bruising. Apparently because of the difficulty in removing my teeth, my jaw was unhinged! which meant I could hardly open my mouth for several days. Survived on soup as I could not open mouth to get a fork or spoon in. Also could not clean teeth much so mouth taste was nasty and could peel paint off walls just by breathing

    Hope I never need the other 2 removed
