Emotional blackmail makes the family stronger. Right?

I'd say it started a week ago that I began feeling slight throbs and pinches ("Oh, maybe I ate something cold. Maybe too much sugar."-- you know, telling yourself it's nothing because you literally don't think it's anything.) I've had my share of careless dental hazards; cavities, none too bad. My dentists noticed them as soon as they sprouted and they were drilled and filled within seconds. About two years ago I busted my face up, chipped a front tooth, had to get it capped and the nerve of that tooth removed also (root canal's aren't that bad, just make sure your anesthetic doesn't wear off halfway through the procedure.)

Sunday night, I woke up at 2 in the morning with severe pains; the entire right side of my mouth was throbbing horrendously. I couldn't tell which tooth was hurting, nor could I even differentiate which side the pain was coming from. I took some ibuprofen, the pain faded in 30 minutes or less and I went back to sleep. The next day at school, I texted my mom and told her about that night; she called the dentist, and made an emergency appointment for the next day (today.)

I was talking to a friend about it, and she suggested it was a dying nerve (what causes you to need a root canal) I shrugged. "Whatever, I've had one before, I can handle another; no big deal." I believed her, because although wisdom teeth begin to come in between the ages of 16 and 25, many people don't experience difficulty with them this early. Of course, I know people that have, but then again everyone is different. Tartarus just recently had his ripped out and he's 19. Tongue

But no. I get to the dentist today, they throw a bunch of x-rays at me, and tell me all of my wisdom teeth are starting to peak. The top and bottom lefties are still in their little socks. The bottom right is halfway through the sock, but still has some time left before it starts causing me pain. The top right is the one causing me pain, and according to my dentist, tops are always the worst to deal with because the pain is difficult to identify (I didn't know what tooth/whether top or bottom was hurting, because everything hurt) and the pain can even cause problems up in the eyes, brain, and extend to the neck. My tooth is cornered against my back tooth, the tooth that's next to it, and it's slowly pushing that tooth. If it continues to do so, it will damage the root of that tooth, and I'll have to have it pulled as well.

I want to slam my head into the sharpest dagger on the planet. The throbbing has continued since I've returned home. Shy

Monday, I go in to meet my oral surgeon, who will then cut open my gums and surgically remove the little bastards.

My deepest sympathies Ferdi. I had the horizontals, and it hurt like a claw hammer to the head. All four ripped out at once.

Thank Science for anesthesia.

Typically if it's a pain you cannot pinpoint, (most commonly) your problem is a dying root or your wisdom teeth. They come in between 17-21, sometimes later, sometimes earlier. My aunt didn't have hers pulled until she was in her 30's, but my friend had his pulled two years ago as soon as he turned 16. Depends on the person. Go get x-rayed.

Horizontals are the trippiest, and in my opinion, look the most painful. Especially if you don't expect them, and have no idea they're there (not going to the dentist about the pain) they begin to grow into the roots of other teeth. Sad

RE: Wisdom Teeth
Strangely enough, I had mine pulled at age 33 and it was one of the easiest medical procedures I ever had. Went to sleep, woke up with my jaw and tongue completely numb and went home. By the end of the second day, I was eating solid food again. I even never had to use the opiate pain killers, just 800mg of Advil every six hours for a week.

It's all dependent on how deep the teeth are in the jawbone. If they're near the surface and breaking the gums, then they should come out with little hassle. It's when they're deep in the jawbone near the nerve is when it becomes complicated and painful to remove.
