I've had mine taken out years ago. All four were coming in sideways, so yeah, those had to be out of there. First few days were a bloody and painful mess, then my mouth was swollen, and then it was over within a week's time.

I am hoping I do not get a swollen face, and that this can all be over with soon. The pain is not too bad today, and I've only been awake for 15 minutes and have spent that on the laptop here, so I am not too certain about blood today. I am hoping that has passed, as I hate having to bite down of gauze, I keep gagging on it when I speak.

As long as my face does not swell, I'll be happy.


Yeah, whatever.

I need to get around to getting em out at some point. I figure I'll wait until they hurt. Maybe by then evolution will have been accomplished and they will disappear into nothing.

I'm 22 and my wisdom teeth are already out in my mouth, I think.

It doesn't hurt or anything, I think I'm just lucky and actually have room for them.

how did people deal with wisdom teeth in the olden days?

I asked my girlfriend that same question, and she told me that the pioneers / indians (here at least) used to have a sort of plant that they would bite down on while somebody else ripped the tooth out, it eased the pain somehow through something in it, and then I guess they would just deal with the bleeding and pain like men.

I don't know if this is fact, but her mom's ex-boyfriend is a native man and he had one of the plants there and said that was what they did for tooth extractions and other things back in the day.
Who knows for sure though?


Yeah, whatever.

The only good thing about having your wisdom teeth removed is that it only happens once.

Most of our jaws have gotten narrower because of evolution. A very long time ago, this wasn't really much of a problem.

My wisdom teeth were highly impacted and extremely bothersome quite a while ago. I had an oral surgeon remove all 4 on January 10, 2008. The procedure took about 30 minutes and I decided not to be IV sedated. I handled myself pretty well during the surgery and post-operatively. At the time, I was 17 and almost 18.

For anyone that hasn't gotten it done but is thinking about it, try to get it done before you're 25, because if you try to get it done when you're 25 or older, you greatly increase your chances of getting your mandibular nerve and all its branches (particularly the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves) temporarily or permanently damaged...at least for your lower wisdom teeth. For the upper teeth, there's also a much higher risk of your sinuses being exposed or perforated. All of this is due to the fact that wisdom teeth roots start to fully form when you're around 25, so getting them out early long before that happens is a much smarter thing to do and much less painful...and that is only if you need them out to begin with. If your wisdom teeth are completely asymptomatic--as in they aren't impacted, perfectly aligned and not bothering you, it's not practical to try to get them removed because you'll just suffer needlessly and waste a lot of money. That's especially true if you're already 25 or older, which I would say is a very big contraindication in itself. My dad is almost 50, still has his wisdom teeth and is doing okay. My mom for some reason waited until she was 40 to get hers out and that wasn't a smart decision, but she's fine now.

I've had a tooth pulled before - a wisdom tooth, that had a nasty cavity, but that's what comes from not seeing your dentist for about 7 years...

He's a genius and had the tooth out, before I'd noticed, to be honest. Yes, he put the pliars in my mouth and I thought he was still working a loosening it off, but no, he presented me with a bloody tooth, with pretty distorted roots, compared to those teeth that you see in cartoons. Just be sure to swill your mouth with warm salt water (and have something nice to take the taste away afterwards) to stop you getting an infection from the open wounds and the high levels of bacteria in your mouth.

You'll be fine.

I had that done done 10 months ago when my wisdom teeth began eroding real bad. Honestly though it wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. I was knocked out at the time of them doing it, and even after I had it done I wasn't a hot mess like most people were plus I had a four day weekend because of it. I guess I lucked out with mine.

10 minutes? That was a fast working dentist. When they pulled mine out it takes them some 30 minutes or something. I guess my dentist is kind of lazy.

Is it even possible for anyone to not have to have their wisdom teeth pulled?

I'm 99.9% sure mine are already in and surfaced. I've never noticed any discomfort or pain or anything.

Yeah, everyone exaggerates pain for everything.
Wisdom teeth weren't that bad. Just make sure you have medicine ready to take when you are in bed, because the pain may wake you up for a few nights. It did for me, about 6-8 hours after the last dose of medicine.

Damn...I know that getting your wisdom teeth pulled is extremely painful and will be very painful for the next few days or so to come, but sounds to me like it'll be better than the pain you described in the beginning...ouch...

That sounds scary. I might have mine pulled when I'm older unless they grow out more.

Get a panoramic x-ray or CBCT scan of your jaw just to make sure they're perfectly aligned and not impacted, because if so, you don't need them pulled. Also, there are a lot of people that never grow wisdom teeth at all.
