The aches in my bottom wisdom tooth is becoming more frequent. I don't think I'm brave enough to make an appointment and get surgery! Who else TERRIFIED of the dentist here?
sure dentist sucks,
but it's not like i ever smile to anyone,
or talk to girls.
who /fuckedupyellowteeth/ here?
You'd better do it, I had three months of my wisdom teeth stabbing into the side of my mouth and still have scars years later.
I got put under and had all four pulled and the ordeal was way better than anything you'd be awake for. Just passed out, woke up and it was done. Had some minor pain and swelling but just took a bunch of oxycodone and everything was great soon enough.
> In my last year of dentist school (no idea if there is an English term for it)
> beforehand did a three year apprenticeship to become a dental assistant
are you terrified of me? What about qt dentist assitant girls?
if thats actually your scan you definitely don't want to wait it out.
If you're terrified of the operation find a dentist that does a full anesthesia instead of just a local one. Might cost you a little extra but its worth it - also it usually means less pain afterwards.
dude just go get it done. the anesthesia puts you out in 5 seconds and the next thing you know the surgery is over. you will get lots of t3s so you wont feel much pain. i got mine out sep 1st 2015. it was a blast thanks to the opiates.
Dude I don't know why that is.
My theory is that for some reason a lot of pretty girls start the apprenticeship - and the few ugly ones that start it rarely finish it because they drop out.
Ayy lmao Dylan don't worry I just had all of my wisdom teeth along with a milk tooth extracted a few months ago. I was terrified and kept having panic attacks.
I was brought into a room with a really sarcastic asshat of a doctor who explained everything and then had very polite nurses bring me blankets to put over me, attach suction-cup like things to my body to monitor my heartrate and then they cleaned my elbow which was cold and poked me with the IV.
It felt like a really cold rush in my veins for a few seconds and I was like "my arm is cold." I looked and there was a stand with a water baggy on the top attached to a line which led to my needle in my arm. The nurse was injecting something and I was like "is that the medicine" and the last thing I remember is her saying "nope." Bitch lied.
45 minutes later I was hauled off in a wheelchair to the car by my mom and trying to call people with gauze in my mouth. I couldn't feel my lips and was crying because I thought there were worms on my face.
All in all it was hilarious but not really painful at all.
And mine were a LOT worse than yours.
They ended up having to drill into the bottoms. I will give you some advice for it as well: the top doesn't hurt at all really, so don't worry, but the bottom does.
Also they're gonna ask you to squirt water into the holes to keep it clean about a week after the surgery which is the worst part, I got mine done in September and all holes are closed except the bottom left that sometimes still leaves a grossish taste in my mouth from a teeny tiny opening.
Pic related, my teeth before getting braces. Got braces on over a year ago and ofc in September had the procedure done (which I should've done a year ago desu)
Procrastinating makes it worse.
> I thought there were worms on my face.
I've been hearing stuff like this a lot coming from the US. What the fuck are they giving you?
It depends on lots of things how much money you end up making but its definitely far above the average - even for people that hold a degree.
OH and if they give you penicillin to prevent infection your pee might smell gross after a while on it, just keep taking it and don't worry. It eventually became nauseating to me and I flushed the last two pills of mine but it still took a few days for my pee to smell normal again.
Just don't sniff the penicillin before you take it and you shall be good.
I have no clue what they gave me.
I just know that I was out like a light and when I woke up I was very disoriented and kind of in a daze. I really felt like I was making sense but I recorded it and I was talking in a way that is barely sensible. In my mind I was speaking clearly and concisely. The initial fear of worms being on my face were me touching my lips, having never felt the sensation of numbness, and my brain inable to realize they were not worms since they didn't feel right. I was really drowsy and mostly felt slightly impaired. I was also reeeeaally interested in recording/trying to see what my mouth looked like.
Feels kind of like you do when you're dead asleep but someone wakes you up and wants you to think very logically but you're still kind of happy and warm and cozy and out of it. It was honestly probably the best I've felt in a long time. The medicine I had after was hydrocodone and penicillin.
Here's a vid of how I was acting after for keks/to show that it wasn't too bad. No hallucinations or anything. Just slightly disoriented and swollen: tiny(dot)cc(slash)anasthesiakek
I had a root canal a few months back, and don't get me wrong, it hurt a little a times, but if anything it was a combination of boring and interesting. I'd spend a lot of time looking directly up at the dentist while he was working and observing the equipment he was using to defile me teeth and after a good bit of doing that it got boring.
You can ask them to put you to sleep if you really need it, I believe.
I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out and a root canal. Just use Google and find experienced oral surgeons your insurance will cover.
Next goal is to get braces but I don't have enough dosh atm
It doesn't hurt at all. Get the twilight sleep anesthesia, it's where they inject you with this stuff that keeps you in stasis between unconsciousness and consciousness. You wake up an hour or so later feeling groggy, then you go home and rest for a couple days. The pain is negligible, I took care of it with 800mg ibuprofens, and saved the oxycodone to get fucked up on.
dude just do it.
You also made me realize that my panoramic x-ray was shit.
I should rape the technician to death.
He positioned me wrong, so it's blurry, and he set up the machine wrong, so my jawbones aren't all visible.
also what is this?
Did you have an extraction, or is it a new one coming out?
>untreated teeth problems can literally kill you.
I second this.
I wish I knew the issues a dental infection can cause beforehand.
At least you don't have it as bad as me. My bottom wisdom teeth were growing horizontally, so the dentist had to cut my gum open in a triangle shape and BREAK the fucking tooth into smaller pieces, pick them out and then sew it back together.
It was a literal fucking nightmare.
I had to go to the dentist since I can remember. Behind two of my upper front teeth, the second from the middle, was a little bump thad had to be abraded every three months. My dentist was one of the nicest persons I knew and after each visit i got a booster of the old Pokemon cards. After that I got my braces for a few years and when I was done with them my wisdom teeth had to be removed. I created a playlist with epic music, Two Steps from Hell etc. and listened to it while they removed them. One was no problem, but the other one grew so fucked up that they had to cut it in Pieces. That motherfucker of a tooth needed 25 minutes until it gave up. I didn't go to my dentist but to an oral surgeon and I suggest you to visit one too. He removed a fucktons of wisdom teeth in his life on a daily basis and even joked with me during the operation. I was so relayed that even my heart rate was as low as it is while I'm typing this.
call an oral surgeon, ask google to find a nice one near you, trust him and get those motherfuckers removed while listening to some epic music.
I woke up during my wisdom teeth removal
Dentist didn't believe i was in pain
Told my mom "he's just reacting to pressure"
>tfw the dental assistant calls asking if I'm ok and says she need a Xanax to calm down after hearing me scream
Probably abscess, you should get it checked ASAP, becuase it can spread to your blood system and get you a serious blood contamination.
I'm going to the dentist for a check up this saturday, then probably getting the tooth pulled and the abscess drained
This is the first time I'm going to the dentist in about 12 or 13 years and I'm completely terrified.
I had mine removed yesterday and now my jaw is swollen and I can't eat properly. JUST
I have an appointment with an oral surgeon later this month to have all four of my wisdom teeth removed. My insurance doesn't cover anesthesia do I have to be put under nitrous and local anesthetics. Not really looking forward to it. I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with nitrous and tooth extractions.
