    Thumbs down Ouch! My TEEF HURT!

    So I woke up at 3:30 am today, was driven to the oral surgeon, beat the rush hour traffic and arrived 3 hours early, waited outside in the cold until the place opened, and got all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled.

    I was under general anesthesia, and felt nothing, but now the pain and swelling are kicking in! I guess it's too soon to see if I've got a wisdom tooth horror story, but I'm sure it's gonna suck in the next few days.

    So, tell me any of your wisdom tooth/dentist/orthodontist horror stories to scare me while I heal.

    man I had a blast getting my wisdom teeth pulled. I sat in the chair..they hooked up the drip, and said count backwards from 10. "10, 9...zzzzz"
    I woke up in a completely different room...I have no idea how they got me in there. I'm kinda light - I wonder if one the nurses just threw me over her shoulder and dumped me on a bed.

    After that they gave me codeine and I had a pretty pleasant week after that. I was hoping more wisdom teeth would grow just so I could live it all over again.

    they had to drill into my jaw to get mine out... i threw up blood a couple times later that day, I guess I swallowed a lot.. shit was swollen for about a week and I had big black and blue bruises on one side of my face from my jaw about up to my cheekbone. Took forever for the bruise to heal, looked like I had jaundice for a better part of a month; it turned yellow after it was black & blue.

    ***gross*** then after it healed, I was really bad at cleaning out the holes, I was always rushing out to class after eating- don't do that! that shit was awful, food actually decomposing in cavities your mouth. seriously disgusting, like having lil bits of poop in your mouth. sorry to gross anyone out

    somebody once threw a rock at me. they hit, my front teeth suffered. i was just a young, innocent lad at the time. after 2 hrs in that dentist's office, i knew the meaning of pain.

    then, a couple of years later i had to go back, cuz i'd actually managed to break the dental work whilst running around in some forrest.

    dammit, i can still remember that awful smell. that smell which, as i was sitting there in the dentist's chair, reminded my of the time i sawed up some moose-antlers cuz i was making a sheath for my knife. metal grinding into bone and the friction causing a strangely sweet smell of something burning.

    i got my bottom braces put on a week ago and havent been able to clos emy mouth properly for a week. my top teeth rest on my bottom brackets, making it impossible for the rest of my teeth to touch as they should, this means i cant chew food.

    i made spaghetti the other nice, but due to the face i cant bite threw the spaghetti, the spaghetti kept running down my neck half way. now i dunno if any of you have experienced that, but imagine having 1 end of a spaghetti noddle on the back of your tongue, and the rest of it sliding down your thoart. all this is while i have a mouth full of spaghetti.

    this past week ive been in a constant state if discomfort and "eww". its pretty pretty gross.

    i havent been able to eat anything that requires too much chewing, since theres like a centimeter gap between my molars. and you cant get full off smoothies... ive tried...

    i had a baby eyetooth for a very long time and it just wouldn't come out. my dentist x-rayed the area and found out that my adult eye tooth was lying horizontally in the smack dab middle of the roof of my mouth, so they had to take out my baby tooth, dig into the roof of my mouth, attach a gold chain to that tooth and drag it down bit by bit into place. This took several years and it was very painful evertyime they tightened the chain.

    My oral surgeon when he took my wisdom teeth out saw the progress of this tooth and said "hey, you know your orthodontist is bringing this tooth in backwards right?" Turns out the front of the tooth was facing inwards. I told my orthodontist this and he flipped out cursing the oral surgeon saying he doenst know what the hell hes talking about. I showed him what he meant...he said "oh. Oops".

    I fired him and got a new orthodontist who had me out of braces in 9 months ;P

    Rick Hershey needs to pop in, he just had some whicked work done back there.

    Mine were out in about 7 minutes under a general. I only had them removed because cleaning was tough back there and I was starting to lose bone mass in my jaw.

    I had all four out in no time... but I had no feeling in one vertical strip from my nose to my chin across my mouth for about a month. They weren't sure if feeling was going to come back at all... While it was numb I could do all sorts of cool things, though... like drool...
