Hi guys! So I am getting two of my four wisdom teeth out this upcoming Tuesday on the 4th...I'm not super super scared about it or anything, but with any dental visit I am a little nervous. All four of my wisdom teeth are out--the top two are fine and I'm getting the bottom two removed. The one on the left is half out, straight up, and the one on the right is half out, at an angle towards my other teeth so I figured if I don't get those two pulled out it could crook my now perfectly aligned teeth. I'm not getting knocked out or breathing laughing gas during the operation. I'm only getting my mouth frozen and I will be wide awake for the entire procedure It makes me feel a little uneasy, but laughing gas is TOO expensive and the dentist said if I want to get knocked out I should get all four removed instead (which I don't want yet). So, any advice on how to prepare myself before the operation and how to take care of myself after? Also, please share your experiences with your wisdom teeth removal--did it hurt during the process (I hope not!)? Did it hurt a lot after the anaesthics wore off? Did you bleed lots? Did it feel like there was a gigantic hole in your gums and for how long (until it healed itself)? Were you sore for many days? Swollen? How long did these symptoms last? What kinds of foods did you eat while you were recovering and how many days did it take until you could eat "normal food" again? Did you lose weight during this time? Did the dentist damage your other teeth in the process? How were your wisdom teeth removed? I'm hoping for people who have/had a similar situation as I do...just getting two removed, only having local anaesthetics. Both my sister and boyfriend have had theirs removed awhile back, and from my sister it wasn't that bad but from my boyfriend he said he was sleeping for 90% time after his operation because it hurt so much. Please share!!
