Captain FuKu Posted May 17, 2004 Share Posted May 17, 2004 Alright this sucks. Well, my wisdom tooth may potentially cause me problems if I just let 'em stay. See, I already had my braces off a while back, but as my fricking wisdom tooth wants to emerge, it's crowding up my jaw and my top retainer still fits (sorta) but I can't get my bottom one to fit anymore cuz my teeth are starting to become crooked once more, thanks to the emerging wisdom teeth. Wonderful. So I am at a point in which I must choose to probably get surgery to have these f#ckers removed or just let 'em stay and continue to f*ck up 2 and 1/2 years of Orthodontic work! Cuz frankly, I don't think I wanna let my teeth get any more crooked than it is started to get. To add to the problem, I've also got some cavities which I probably need to get taken care of before any surgery can be done on my wisdom teeth; and no doubt I'll probably hear some lecture from my retarded dentist about taking care of my teeth blah blah. (I blame this on all those coffee I've been drinking in order to stay up doing school work/studying, only to end up exhausted and just crash into slumber land without brushing -- poor excuse?) (I planned on enjoying my two weeks off from school before I start summer school, but looks like it ain't going to turn out like I hoped for.) Anyway, I hear the recovery can be rather slow after removing these "wisdom teeth", and sometimes bleeding may be very persistent, swelling of the jaw may occur, possible complications from surgery, and on and on. Great. Just great. I know surgery is not a must, but my teeth tend to have deep roots and already I'm getting flashbacks of my retarded dentist manually trying to extract 4 tooth (2 lower, 2 upper) before I got my braces. That bastard was sweating and puffing like a pig, and I remember that the skin from my tongue peeled off because his stupid instrument rubbing against it as he tried to extract my tooth -- tongue was bleeding for like 2 straight days after. Yeah, I'm probably gonna need to have it surgically removed. I know most of you guys here are around the age when you get your wisdom tooth or just past that age, so I was hoping some of you can share any stories you may have and whether you had them removed, and whatever. (I'm done for now, but ask me for clarifications if you need.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
