Roy’s Getting Wisdom Teeth Removed!

Hello Everyone. Well, as the subject line suggests, I will be a bit out of the loop for the next few days while I recover from getting not 1, not 2, not 3, but all FOUR wisdom teeth pulled. The good news, or so “they” tell me, is that all teeth have erupted,(this is suppose to mean the procedure will go better) are not impacted and should be a “sinch”! Hmmm. Why do I feel skeptical but in Good Faith I march forward with the procedure. In the meantime, I wanted to include an educational, though quite simple, video on what the procedure includes for wisdom teeth extraction. I suggest this video because it didn’t turn the stomach unlike some other educational but graphic videos located on YouTube under Wisdom Tooth Removal. For those of you whom I spoke with prior to this procedure, who did not have such a simple procedure, and you know who you are, I’ll be thinking of you while undergoing the procedure.
So, please say a prayer for me while I undergo the knife and I want you to know that I looks forward to my next video blog entry when the swellings gone.

  1. Funnily enough, I just had all four wisdom teeth removed 1 February of this year. I was apprehensive as people were all-too-eager to tell me their “Wisdom Teeth Horror Stories”. Gack.
    My dentist is a brilliant guy though, and while two of my wisdom teeth were infected, I never had any real discomfort. He never used anything but a local anesthetic; nerve blocks and infiltration with novacain.
    I went to the pharmacy(while still biting on the gauze)to get my meds, took advil, the antibiotics and one other med he prescribed, and went home. Put on ice packs throughout the rest of the evening, and went to bed.
    I had pictures taken for an ID the next day, and went to a meeting the day after that.
    No pain meds (other than Advil), no swelling.
    My guy is brilliant!
    I wish you the same speedy recovery.


  2. I had my wisdom teeth removed when I was in high school. When I was in there, they told me to start counting down from 100, and I remember doing that, and as I was doing that, I saw them picking up their tools, and I closed my eyes. The next thing I remember was them waking me up, and this lady bringing me a box of tissues. “You bit your lip,” she said. So I touched the tissue to my lip and then looked at it, and it was covered in blood. So I held it there, as I waited in this little waiting room. Then my mom and the lady helped me walk out to my mom’s car, right through the waiting room where there were about four or five little kids staring up at me with big wide eyes, around the room, sitting next to their mothers. “Ha ha ha, you’re next” is what I thought, as we left the building.

    The dentists’ names at the place I went? Dr. Pain and Dr. Panic. (Though spelled differently, that’s how they’re pronounced.)

  3. Hope you are doing ok after the extractions. Glad to hear that you are getting all 4 out at once. That way it is all over at once and they don’t grow back.LOL Rest up use, the ice and take the drugs as prescribed and you will be fine. Now aren’t you sorry you didn’t have them out as a kid when your mom and dad would have paid for it? LOL

  4. I am glad it went well with the procedure. I am 16 and have to get my wisdom teeth out because they started to bug me and are impacted.

    P.S. Good work on the videos, I like them and they are very informal on showing me what to do in various situations
