RE: Wisdom teeth extraction
I know what she shouldn't do. Join the Navy and have some Navy boot camp dental student who didn't even know how to properly administer local anaesthesia dig them out before they were even coming in while looking at a book for reference. 4 Tylenol 3's for recovery. Yeah, don't do that.

RE: Wisdom teeth extraction
Even 1 is very painful. 4 sounds like a nightmare!

Shocking

All four of mine were slightly crowded and had to be removed; knockouts were standard procedure but apparently mine were a super easy job in any case. I still have them in a nice jar of preservative. If they all need to go eventually I don't see any reason not to do it all at once. Easier for everybody else that way, too.

My daughter wants to know if she can eat anything afterwards if she has all four removed at one time. I had one pulled at a time so I could sort of chew on the other side so I don't know what to tell her.

It guess it would depend on the severity of the surgery; like I said, mine was pretty clean. If there's any rooting around involved or if the nerves of her remaining teeth are contacted it'll be worse.

My molars and gums were too sensitive to chew for the two days after, but there's a lot you can eat without any serious chewing. If the whole jaw's out of commission for a little while that's another matter entirely...

It took about 4 days, but I still had some bruising even after the pain pretty much went away. I do think everyone heals at a different rate--but that was my experience.

I had mine done on a Wednesday evening; I was pretty much fine by Friday and clearly could have worked but at that point who wouldn't use the excuse for an extra-long weekend?

RE: Wisdom teeth extraction
I had one out, I refuse to touch the other three.

Just no.

Not a day goes by that I don't regret just doing them all when I was 18.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Exactly why did all four at once.

They wanted to take two and said the other two would need to come out before long...I told them that if they were going to knock me out to get two they better get all four cause I knew I would never go back.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Wisdom teeth extraction
I had all 4 at once, I remember carrying around some Tylenol + Codeine and was a bit slow for a weekish but that was all.

I had to push back an Astronomy class presentation a day because the pain was getting to me by the time the class started, which bothered my overeager partner, but it wasn't any issue after that.

I had several pills left over I never took that none of my friends ever wanted from me.

RE: Wisdom teeth extraction
Thread needed a poll.
All 4 no question.
Who would want to go back for the other two, really? That would have sucked.

When my dentist told me I made some research on it and apparently 6 wisdom teeth would have been a Neandertal trait. Remember, evolutionism is a filthy lie invented by communist baby eater who want to destroy America.
