Got knocked out and had them all removed a few years ago. Despite my intense worries over surgery of any kind (as well as the fact that, since I was on public insurance, I got sent to a sketchy looking oral surgeon) everything went well as far as I know and I recovered within a couple days. Didn't need any pain meds, either.
Yes, all four. I think I was around 16 when I got them taken out. The actual procedure wasn't bad. I wasn't put to sleep, I just had novakaine so I could feel the dentist ripping them out but there was no pain. It was weird. However, the next few days were fucking hell.
Not yet, but once the time comes I'll be ready. Ready to feel the pain of the needle sticking my gums, and having my teeth pulled out. I imagine it will be bloody and nasty. Then feeling the after effects of my sore gums, sounds pretty exciting when I think about it. Even though I would have to drink soup for awhile. Anyway good luck man and stay strong and firm, like me...
Yeah... it was a terrible experience all around. There was something wrong with them (I forget what the dentist said it was) that made them extremely weak, so they started breaking. By the time I got in to have them pulled, one was just a painful, jagged spike. It had to be done in two separate sessions, I needed way more Novocaine than I should have, the roots were strong and hard to pull, and the second time, I got dry socket which is hell.
Had all four out at once, plus two more top molars (so total of 6 at once). They put me out and pulled'em all. I knew going into it that having teeth pulled was going to suck, so I just wanted to experience it once and be done with it rather than only get a couple done at a time.
They gave me hydrocodone for pain, but I stopped taking that the very next day. I'm the kind of guy who has to have a really bad headache just for me to take aspirin, added to the fact that I was super paranoid about developing an addiction and I got the fuck off those things as soon as possible. That night I threw up because I swallowed too much blood. Also the whole time I was worrying about developing dry socket. My diet consisted of mashed potatoes and gravy for about two weeks. The worst part about the whole experience for me though was the thirty minutes immediately after I woke up from whatever gas they used to knock me out for the removal. I wasn't in pain or anything, but that weird loopy feeling was something I never want to experience again.
I've had an impacted molar and a wisdom tooth removed so far. For some reason my dentist referred me to the dental surgery dept. at the local hospital (never told me why) I was rather nervous heading in, as it was obviously my first time. Didn't help the guy took ages to get prepped, to the point of the assisting nurse getting a bit pissed off. He either didn't jab me up correctly or not enough, because I could still feel it when he started working on the molar. The wisdom teeth was out in a couple of minutes, but the impacted molar took a while; all in all I think I was in there for about 30 minutes. I got a prescription for a giant box of ibuprofen from the hospital pharmacy, but I ended up using only 2 bags to see what kind of effect it would have. Aside from some soreness and the swelling, it wasn't all that painful. The giant ass needle he stuck in my palate was the worst part of it. Regardless, I have to head back in sooner than later to have the last two removed, and i'm not looking forward to it.
Got them removed last Summer iirc. During Week 2(3?) of Air-Force BMT, everyone gets Dental X-Rays and stuff done, so they eventually got back to me like, "These teeth are probably gonna bother you at some point, so why not get it done now while it's free?"
Like any smart person would, 19 year old Flappy jumped at the opportunity and got totally fucked up. One of the assistants missed a vein in my arm, so she had to stick a needle in the other one while apologizing repeatedly. Once that got settled, I felt a cool sensation in my body and remember laughing like an asshat before passing out. Other than a single instance where I heard them drilling away at one of my teeth, I was KO'd.
The thing is, it only got worse from there.
I couldn't really eat anything outside of peanut butter and yogurt, so I was fucked (I was still a trainee at the time, so I didn't have the luxury of getting the good stuff). Blood going down my throat was a constant issue, along with numbness of the mouth/chin, hunger, swelling (I did sound like Kanye in Through the Wire for a bit, so that was cool), and overall lots of discomfort. Flushing out my gums to avoid infection was NOT fun. As a slender dude, losing 12 pounds was not cool at all.
On the bright side, the entire procedure was free, I got access to stupid amounts of percocet, AND I was still getting paid despite being a miserable, drooling wreck...
10/10 would do it again.
My wisdom teeth are almost completely through now, and haven't given me any trouble. Had a little bit of toothache whilst the top ones were first coming through, but nothing major. I'm lucky, I guess. No need for expensive and painful dental surgery for me.
got two of them removed 2 months ago, it was more painful to have it in because one of them was rotting from a cavity, otherwise i would have never taken them out. my healing process was painless though(no soreness or swelling), i guess i have a high tolerance for pain.
I'd like to add a little advice to those of you who haven't gotten them removed yet.
Have them removed by an oral surgeon, NOT a general practicing dentist.
I said that I only got three removed today. My first removal went wrong. I lost all sense of taste in half of my tongue, which hasn't come back. Don't worry about me though, I may just be without it for a few more years. Nerve endings heal very very slowly.
This isn't to scare you all, just be safe and have a surgeon remove them and you'll be fine.
I was 18 when I got mine out. Was about to start college and the week before my dentist recommended I have them removed. I underwent the surgery without any complications, except that all four of them were impacted and in full contact with the 2nd molars. Removal involved lots of 3rd molar shattering to get them out. I had no swelling until a week after the surgery (first day of college), but I never experienced any pain.
Believe my mother used all of the pain medication for her own ills.
Four pulled all at once. I was 19 or just about to turn 19. Procedure went fine. Honestly don't remember if I was put under, which I guess means I probably was. I don't remember much about that day at all, really, except after it was over I remember the bleeding carried on a bit longer than the dental surgeon warned me about so I ran out of gauze and for about a half hour or so I just stood over the sink in the bathroom drooling blood, because you aren't supposed to spit since they might break the sutures.
I think I recall some talk that they cut my teeth in half and pulled out the halves, or something along those lines.
You mutant extra toothed people need to be rounded up and locked away! Maybe experimented on, for science.
All 4 in one visit, local anesthesia. It wasn't so bad except for the sound and being awake for the yanking, but my bottom left was really stubborn and had to be broken into pieces to get it all out. My recovery was normal, but the first night after the dentist's stuff started to wear off was terrible. Especially the 20-30 minutes it took for my take-home pain meds to start hitting me, only to find out they weren't hitting me hard enough. Thankfully that was the only time I needed something stronger than ibuprofen.
Got all 4 removed when I turned 30. They were all really impacted.
I had them removed by an oral surgeon. It was a multi-step process. He X-ray'ed my mouth and gave me a consult.
On the day of the surgery, they knocked my ass out. Ruptured a vein in my arm putting the needle in; it was bruised as hell. I woke up an hour later as if I had woken up from a nap. I was so scared of the pain, I went home and took the pain killers (which just really screwed my stomach up.). I only took one pill before tossing the rest. I had no pain. No ache. I just had a weird phantom tooth sensation for a few days.
The most terrifying part? The oral surgeon asked me as I was going under, "I'm taking out the front teeth, right?" and before I could answer, I was out cold.
I just had to keep the sockets clean. A week later, I had a check up and that was that.
I guess the worst part was my face was numb for HOURS after the surgery. I went in at 7am and that stupid tingle sensation did not go away until the next morning.
I don't see an option for "Other" or "I had a dentist transplant wisdom teeth from the left side of my mouth to the right side because my molars were removed before they grew through my jaw".
Technically I've still got all 4 wisdom teeth, they're just all on the right side- 3 on the bottom, one on the top. Yay science!
The last time I went to the dentist, which admittedly was like 12 years ago, I was told I had no wisdom teeth, so I thought I could live without worry. Almost two years ago though, one started coming in on the right side. Nothing ever developed from that, though. It's still just peeking out of my gum, and it hurts every so often, but that's really about it. Hopefully that's all that ever happens with it, because I'm terrified of getting them pulled.
I have had all four removed, and I was awake for when they did it. Just had my gums numbed up real good. Honestly I didn't think the process of having them removed was that bad. It was the rest of the day that was annoying, what with having to constantly switch out gauze pads, and being unable to open my mouth to talk or eat/drink normally.
