The Lone Clothespin....
Wisdom teeth removal!!
I got mine out yesterday, all four.
The top two had broken through the skin and we're almost normal teeth, but the bottom ones were impacted, so they all had to be removed.
For a while i thought i was going to be a badass who was going to have 4 extra functioning molars, but x-rays disproved that notion.
Now on day number two, there is virtually no pain to speak of, and i haven't taken any meds except my antibiotics. Isn't this supposed to hurt more?

I didn't take pain meds at all, and I was just peachy. I just iced my face the first day or two. Just don't get anything (like food) stuck in the holes where your teeth used to be. One of my friends had that happen, it got infected, and his tooth-holes started bleeding and excreting pus. Pretty gross.

After I had mine taken out (5) my face was swollen just a little bit. The next day no pain and I was playing guitar at some talent show type deal.
We must of been lucky, cause everyone else I see has huge swollen cheeks, and are out for a few days.
The only part that sucked was washing out the holes. Not that it was hard, just felt weird. And then when the stitches dissolve, those feel weird too.

All four of mine were badly impacted. I had them removed in 1970 in the hospital. It was done under general anesthetic they were so bad. After a few days the oral surgeon's daughter, who worked in his office, removed the stitches. She was adorable. I asked her out right after she removed them when my breath must have been at its worst ever. I went out with her a few times after that. All in all it was a most positive experience.

My top 2 wisdom teeth grew in so removing them was just like pulling teeth.
My bottom 2 wisdom teeth are still there, right where I hope they will stay. They are not causing any problems. The roots are so deep that removing them would be a serious issue.

I was under general anesthesia for my 4-pack removal.
The doc said he had to use a hammer and chisel to break 'em apart before pulling 'em. I'm glad I wasn't awake for that.
I spent a week in bed on pain meds afterwards. Amazed that you guys were functional the next day... wasn't the case for me at all.
