I feel like I'm the only person I know of that had a somewhat positive experience with getting my wisdom teeth removed. I only had two wisdom teeth, both bottoms. They were removed last spring. I got there in the morning, got to business, and woke up after. Since I they don't allow you to wear contacts, I have a very blurred memory of it (my vision is -8 or something like 20/2000), but I remember trying to rip the ice wrap thing off my head multiple times until they took it away. I just didn't know what it was or why it was on my face. I wanted it back after I completely woke up..
I went home and slept for the day, then went to school the next day. I was given percocet, which actually works on me thankfully (vicodin has very little effect for me). My face was a little swollen for a day, then went down. I never really experienced much pain, just a dull ache whenever my percocet started to wear off, so I took more.
Basically, I just go to spend 10 days completely doped up. Best part was, I was completely messed up in my last class of the day..and I hated it and the teacher. 'Twas fun.
And when I went in for the checkup afterwards when they give you that weird syringe to clean out the sockets, they said my sockets were already healed and I didn't need to clean them out. Woo.
