    Give me some info guys...I woke up this morning looking like a chipmunk. Off to the oral surgeon at 12:30 to get my wisdom teeth checked. How long is recovery? Cost?

    Damn baseball season started monday so I don't have time for this stuff now.

    Your insurance should cover most of it. Recovery time isn't too bad. I had mine out my Freshman year of HS.

    I had my teeth cleaned a few weeks ago and the dentist said they were coming in straight and I had plenty of room.

    Just talked to mom, she had hers out in her early 30s:roll2:

    I had mine taken out earlier this year and it hurt like a bitch for a couple of weeks untill I talked the dentist into giving me a perscription for perkaset.

    It depends on your insurance. When I was in my early 20's I had two come in bad. I did not have any dental coverage so I had them taken out with only local anesthetic. It was not so bad other than you can see how violently they treat your mouth to get those bastards out. They actually took a hammer and chisel and had to break the tooth up inside my mouth to get it out. The other two I had done after I got married and had good ins. General anesthesia this time woke up, went home and sat around for a while and then stained my deck that night and played golf the next day. I think the recovery and pain are all depending on how hard they are to get out and how much they have to mangle your mouth. If you take the painkillers, and rinse with the salt water you should be functional the next day. You may not want to fill your mouth up with tobacco for a couple days though which may be tough during baseball season. :)

    Good Luck

    grad21 is a teacher so I'm sure his insurance is very good and would cover all if not most of the cost incurred.

    I think that was one of my problems... I was smoking about 6 hours after my surgery and I never rinced with the salt water.

    Okay so it's my own dumbass fault that I was in pain for so long! Who cares! At least I got good drugs out of the deal...

    It hurt for a couple days, but not too bad. I think I was back to workouts by then. Just hope you don't get dry socket. I hear that's bad. My girlfriend went to Cedar Point the day after getting hers out.

    So... 21 are you getting the idea that it goes from "No big deal" to "It fucking sucks for weeks"

    The one thing I've noticed that's good is that you used the term 'oral surgeon.' You know... some dentists actually do this stuff... and everyone I know who's dentist did it.... looked like they spent an hour with Freddy Krueger.

    Had the exact same experience... had my done in my early 20s and got the local treatment. The Oral Surgeon actually asked for my help getting me to place my fist under my jaw as he got on a stool and started pounding the chisel to crack the teeth.

    Needless to say I played softball that night and swallowed a few of my Tylenol/Codeine 3s to get me through the doubleheader.

    Yes I just hope I don't giggle amidst my gutter mind thoughts if the "oral surgeon" is female.

    How is that possibly avoidable... just don't think of it if they put you out and start you with Nitrous to take the edge off the anesthetic.

    Remember.... don't think of it then.

    i had 4 impacted wisdom teeth and had them all taken out at once.

    now i have had ACL replacement surgery, and and partial femur removal for leg lengthening surgery, so I know about pain. That was worse than getting my knee scoped before ACL replacement.

    first off, they couldnt get me to pass out from the IV, then I woke up before the surgery was done and the surgeon still had his hands in my mouth, and the meds had worn off. It hurt like a mother. So essentially, the last 10 minutes of the surgery I was awake. Then, since they were hurrying to get it done since I woke up, they did a piss-poor job of stitching me up on one side, and the stitches broke the next day.

    it was a bad experience.
