So cu/ck/s, what are your favorite soft foods that you ate when you had your wisdom teeth out? I'm on the second day and I'm pretty damn bored of soup and oatmeal.
Pic related, what they looked like.
I had three wisdom teeth pulled when I was in the Army. At the time, I worked as an Infantry NCO processing recruits through the 30th AG in Fort Benning, GA. As you would expect, Army dentists aren't as sharp as their civilian counterparts. The Major left me with a dry socket twice. I ate jello and drank tequila for weeks. And since I was unsupervised when doing my job, I could get away with being drunk during the day. It was the only way to numb part of the pain until the dentist could see me again.
It was horrible. I would rather get a daily paper cut across my eyeball than have to endure that ever again.
I made lots of vitamised/blended soups when I had mine out. Potato and leek, cauliflower soup, ham and pea, etc, try and mix it up soupwise. I couldn't chew for about 10 days when I had mine out because I had a big wound that would open if I chewed. Soup and jelly, god it got old but it was great being able to eat proper food again afterwards.
Getting mine pulled was a bitch.
The procedure itself wasn't anything. Pull, pull crunch. Done. But then of course you got the sockets and the gauze. Painkillers, God bless those because it still ached even through the goddam oxy.
So one of my sockets started to get bad. Wasn't dry socket they told me. In that case I never -want- dry socket because that shit was daaaaayum.... And then they had to clean the socket by squirting -ice cold water into it-. I was never afraid of dentists but I am now because I never wanna feel that again.
I would get loaded mashed potatoes at my grocer's deli. But after I came back the third time dude looked at me and said.
>"Wow, you really like mashed potatoes."
Which with the tone and facial expression was like
>"You some kinda freak, son?"
Depends. I got mine removed in two sittings. First left then right.
The first time all went well, it was a little swollen for like three days and that was it.
The second time the teeth were deeper in the gums and lodged in between some other stuff, so they had to cut a tooth in half and then remove it. This took like two weeks to heal. I wouldn't want to do it again, but it wasn't the worst thing ever either.
Fun story: a friend got his removed and while still on painkillers from the surgery, he thought the whole thing was done and doesn't need any extra time to heal. So he had a giant spicy kebab thing right away. He regretted this decision afterwards.
dont know what all you puss pusses are talking about i had mine all out in the morning and 12 hrs later i was eating solid food i smoked too and they say not to do that cuz dry sockets but i smoked after a couple hrs and i drank straight liquor with no problem all they gave me was 600mg ibuprofen and not much pain
lmao you're a fucking liar.. you have four open wounds in your mouth after they smashed 4 of your biggest teeth into pieces and cut them out.
besides the fact that your face looks/feels like you got bunched in the face from the inside more than once, but there are gaping holes in your gums that are bleeding for like the next day.
I had my four wisdom teeth removed and a fifth tooth removed in my lower left side. I have perfect teeth and never had any cavities in any of my other teeth, but at 29 I ended up cracking all of my wisdom teeth due to them starting to get cavities.
The process is not eating for 8 hours before the surgery, because it can mess up the interaction of the drugs if you get knocked out.
If you get put under its the weirdest feeling ever. They stick an IV in and the next thing you know, you're awake and the process is over. I wasn't that messed up coming out, kinda a feeling of waking up in the morning after a long night of drinking and you still haven't sobered up yet.
There was no pain at all for me, I did take a ton of ibuprofen and acetaminophen which were prescribed for the first five days to prevent any pain from starting... plus I enjoy pain killers.
I saved the Vicodin for after I was healed up, just because I wanted to see what a high was like on it. When I took the Vicodin one pill at a time I didn't get how people could get addicted to it, it didn't do much except make me feel like if I took 4 acetaminophen pills or Advil. I decided to take 3 at a time and realized that it gives you a very chill, numb, walking on clouds feeling. Be careful with it, because it sucks when you come down, you get a little depressed.
The one thing that saved me from any pain (and healing went fast) was that I would carry around a ziplock bag of table salt. From day 2 to day 5 I would take a good pinch size amount of salt and put it in my mouth, then I would take a drink of water and swish it around for 1 minute and spit it out. Make sure when you swish that you do it very lightly and don't force it. I did this every 2 hours and had no problems healing and it prevents pain. Also since it sucks balls to brush your teeth, it does act as a cleaning agent.
When I had my wisdom teeth removed they fucked it up. As a result I had these sharp shards of fragmented teeth that slowly pushed their way up through my gums and would cut the inside of my mouth. This lasted two weeks and resulted in me having to go back multiple times so they could remove them.
I wasn't able to chew and talking was extremely painful. My diet consisted of vicodin, some oxys I bought since they were being Jewish with the vics, and tomato soup. Never again
generally speaking the average modern human has a jaw too small to comfortably fit that many teeth.
I know some people (myself included) that had all their wisdom teeth come in fine without needing to be removed
I had my bottom two removed after they had already started growing out of the gums.
It only hurt a day or two after for me and it was mostly from having to hold my jaw open that wide for a long time.
I healed up pretty quick and was back to eating (mostly) normally 4 days after, I just avoided spicy stuff for a little while after that to make sure.
You're such a lucky fuck. My wisdom teeth were growing sideways (FUCKING SIDEWAYS, as in perpendicular to the orientation of my other teeth) . The had to be removed all four at once, and the dentist didn't just pull them out, he drilled through and broke them, of course I didn't feel anything due to the anesthetic but the sound of my molars shattering hunts my dreams to this day.
To answer your question: flan, or jello with fruit bits, shit is cash
I had eight of these as a kid.
Then I had to get four of my other teeth pulled out because my mouth was too small.
Then I got six wisdom teeth.
I pretty much ate nothing but cream of wheat.
Cream of wheat is fucking delicious and like an old friend to me. I think I'll make some when I get home from work.
I broke my jaw before, six weeks of having my jaw wired shut. I ate a lot of protein shakes and instant mashed potatoes the entire time (instant is easier and thinner). Ate a bunch of pasta with meat sauce blended the first couple weeks. You don't want to know what I ate the last couple weeks. I would put anything in the blender at liquefy at that point. I looked like a skeleton by the end of that.
I only got my left two wisdom teeth pulled so now I have a lopsided mouth.
Oh right, the question.
I just had milkshakes, I thought everyone else did when their teeth decided to rebel against them. I wasn't really in the mindset to decide what my favorite soft food was, mostly focusing on how uncomfortable the whole experience was, especially the fact that there was now an empty, bleeding hole in my mouth being filled by some loose cloth.
>what are your favorite soft foods that you ate when you had your wisdom teeth out?
I was born without them. I'm glad I didn't have to deal with that shit.
>hear all the stories about people being in agony for days afterwards
>mfw my dentist was such a pro he pulled all four out and stitched them up in 15 minutes
>mfw no swelling, didn't even need the medication
I remember going to subway an hour or so after mine got pulled out and had a sandwich no problem (small bites and used my front teeth to chew). Only bad thing was that I blacked out from the meds when I was halfway into a cookie.
I woke up during the surgery and couldn't scream. there was about 20 more minutes to go and they gave me more pain meds so it didn't hurt but I couldn't really move and I wasn't asleep. I remember them sawing through bone. I shouldn't have waited so long to get the surgery. The second your dentist tells you they are coming in or impacted, get them out.
Vanilla Ice Cream
[Not chocolate because apparently it has caffeine and doctors often ask post-op patients to avoid caffeine for whatever reason (except in cases of head trauma where caffeine helps with wound healing for some yet to be discovered reason)]
Plain apple sauce
Pancakes and spaghettios for days, I actually posted on here looking for recipes and it took only an hour and half for someone to give me one, and it ended up not tasting like anything.
