I had my wisdom teeth and my back molars all removed at once. I was only 14, so they had to dig my wisdom teeth out of my gums. Recovery was hell. I lived off of applesauce for 3 days, and since I couldn't swallow pills, I couldn't take any pain medication.



Good luck!

I had all 4 of mine done at the same time, and I had to have my gums cut open and them cut out, so they put me to sleep for it. My mom was awake for hers and she said the worst part of it was that she could hear them breaking up the tooth and digging it out. She didn't feel anything, but she heard a loud *crack* when they broke the tooth.

My so had one taken out and I was there. The cracking noise had me almost have a panic attack :( I'm taking ear phones and my iPod hopefully it will help

i had mine taken out the same way, i freaked myself out so bad beforehand that i was literally shaking in the dentists office, but once i was numbed i didnt feel a thing! don't get yourself worked up, its not as bad as you think. BUT be sure to take your pain meds as described, DO NOT let the pain come back before you take them, that was hell.

Um hell no! I demanded to be put under. I had valium the night before and morning of, general for the surgery and percocet afterwards. It was hell. They accidentally broke my jaw too. I was in horrible pain for 2 weeks. :(
If they're not putting you under maybe yours are better positioned and will be easier!

I was put asleep for mine because my wisdom teeth were growing outwards (towards my cheeks) and they have to cut into my gums and dip them out.



I had them all done at once and turns out I had FIVE wisdom teeth. :shock:. Recovery was hell, and I got an infection ( Idk why but after every surgery I've had I've gotten an infection) which made my mouth taste like rotten nasty when I chewed lol.



But it's really not all that horrid. I was in a lot of pain for 3 days or so. I go them out on a Thursday and went on a field trip in school on Monday. :). BEst of luck.

I had all 4 of mine taken out while awake. They finished my right side in 10 minutes if that, my left side was hell because the one on top was impacted and I could feel it still for some reason so I was screaming and crying for that one. It took about 45 min from numbing till I was calm enough to leave. I had the worse headache of my life about an hour after I got home so I took a percocet and passed out for the rest of the day. Eating was a pain for a few days so I just swallowed some warm soup and those liquid yogurt drinks. Wasnt fun but labor was way worse than that ha!

I had two of mine removed 3 years ago and it wasn't so bad. pain was tolerable with the vicodin lol. it took about a week to feel normal again. i am currently about to go to the dentist to see about removing my other two...i am dreading it because now i have a 3 month old daughter and am breastfeeding sooo i am not sure how it will work. i expect to be down for the count for at least 3 days..
