I had my wisdom teeth removed today...

Posted by   + Show Post
All 4 of them at once. I'm not feeling so great. Does anybody want to share their story of healing up from this very quickly and cheer me up??

Do you mean your back tooth was overlapping it/ in the way? I was just wondering, because ALL my back teeth are crowding y wisdom teeth, causing them to be partially out, but they are under my back teeth because I have large teeth/small mouth. I was just windering if they remove the back teeth too.

I had one out last October. It was impacted and they had to remove the molar in front of it. I ended up with dry socket. Honestly it wasnt the worse pain I have experienced but it was bad. I think I only lost part of the clot and not the whole thing. The pain was relieved within one hour of having it packed. I lived with the pain for a week before I even went in. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

You would be in so much pain you'd contemplate suicide.


Quoting 2ArfarasMom:

What is that exactly? How would I know if I got that? Mine were taken out Tuesday

Mine was painful, because all four were impacted. Fortunately, my mom worked for the doctor, so she knew exactly what to do to keep me comfortable. Definitely remember to take your meds, and keep it consistent. Use ice packs, they're your best friend. Rest is the most important thing. I was back to normal after about 5 or 6 days :) I had them out on a Friday and went back to school on a Wednesday (I had the monday off of school already, but I took Tuesday just to make sure that I was back to normal).

Yeah I didn't know what to expect since I never take pain pills. For me to even take an ib profin takes a lot. The oxy just made me very dizzy and sleepy. So I took the two the day I got them and that was it. But it's interesting that the day after I had hardly any pain, and today I've been in so much pain. It sucks!

My wisdom tooth was impacted sideways and it was pushing on the nerve on the tooth in front of it. I had three consults and nobody would remove the wisdom tooth without taking the molar. I have a small mouth and everything is crammed together.

Sorry, I don't have any good stories for you. I ended up with a dry socket, I had a bad reaction to the vicodin (so I had very little pain relief), and half my lip was numb for a year because they bruised my nerve. I'm just glad it's all over.

I was completely off pain meds by the third day, and never took anything stronger than Tylenol. (I had three impacted and one regular tooth.)

The swelling took about ten days to go down, and it was a little while before I had full range of motion in my jaw again, but at least it didn't hurt :)
