Depends on how old you are.

They should show up on dental x-rays. I had all of mine removed at about 21, they hadn't started growing in, because they were on a collision course with the rest of my teeth.

I had mine pulled 2 at a time, the first 2 one of them were infected so I was dog sick for a week as my body fought the infection. The second 2 was a breeze & I had no issues.

Good luck!

Mine weren't bad. They came in straight and it was pretty easy procedure. Didn't get knocked out, just a bit of novocaine and some gas, he cracked them and pulled all 4. I only had a small amount of swelling and was pretty much good to go the next day.

My hubby didn't have it so easy. He had to have surgery for his and ended up with a dry socket afterwards. He had a good amount of pain.

I'm in the same boat! I only have 3 wisdom teeth, but they are coming out soon! And just like you, I'm perfectly fine with doctors and needles and everything but NOT dentists! I managed to find the only dentist in my city who specializes in sedation, so I get an IV pretty much every time I go (yeah, it's that bad).

He just referred an oral surgeon to us and I'm so nervous! Not because of pain (pain I can handle lol) but I don't wanna get nauseous haha. I know Vicodin is supposed to be taken with food, because it can make you sick on an empty stomach. Supposedly, we're not supposed to drink through a straw for a period of time, either.

Bah, at least it'll be over after this! And try not to panic haha, I'm nervous too but all my friends say it's really not that bad. Good luck!

SH, I had 2 removed (one started to break, and then year later the one opposite to the removed should me removed as well). All I'm gonna to say it depends on dentist. My dentist is great and he told me once pulling teeth is his favorite, because he gets those $100 for 5 mins of work.

So basically yes, the whole procedure took 1 min (plus 15 mins prior that to wait for numb medication to take effect on tissues around the tooth). Then he stitched it (another 2 mins) and that was it. I had no pain or discomfort when the numbing was gone (and didn't take any antibiotics). I could also eat and drink whatever I like (although personally I tried to use other side of mouth for couple days to be on safe side).

P.S. You don't have to go to oral surgeon for that, a knowledgeable dentist can do it perfectly well and with less pain.

Wow am I one of the few that have all four no problems? Within four months of turning 18 all four came in, I didn't even know it until I went to have my braces off and they pointed it out. Both dentists (one for braces one regular) said that most time it is a money grab, unless they hurt no need to come out. Whats funny I have problems with my jaws, bottom one is too small (never grew), and slightly off center twisted a little to the left, but I still had room for them.

My best friend had to have hers out because of a infection (they hadn't erupted) in two. For two weeks she didn't eat, threw up hourly, lost 20 pounds, weighing less than 100 pounds when health that's not good. Good luck to all getting them pulled, I would recommend a second opinion if you can afford it, why would everyone "need" to have them out.

Mine are so crooked that I have to have surgery for mine >.> I'm having all four of mine taken out this summer. I'm mostly afraid of bleeding, because when I had two of my incisors pulled for braces, they bled for 8 hours straight and I almost passed out from loss of blood. I was anemic for a month or two afterwards too.

I do know though, that if you're on Birth Control pills, you're supposed to stop taking them a while before surgery because it caused Dry Socket. It happened to my mom and she said that it was like birthing a child through your mouth. Ouch!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

The name of the Dr. who did mine was Dr. Slaughter(in Medford).....how reassuring...

I had all four of mine done at the same time. The anesthesia made me goofy, apparently I told my mom that "it was fun having teeth pulled"...yep, real fun.

Make sure you get your painkillers fast so you can get them in your system. I was pretty sore for a couple of days and had an incident of puking, passing out, getting stuck between the toilet and the wall and my mom had to pull me out..LOL, that was due to taking too many pain killers and it made me sick.

Good Luck, best to get it now rather when your 40 like my dad, bad deal, I never seen him in so much pain.
