cls9q:  Have you had them examined by a dentist to see if they are impacted or growing into your other teeth?  Two of mine did when I was 18 and since the other 2 looked like they would be impacted eventually, I ended having all 4 removed at the same time.  Prior to that I had pain intermittantly on and off over a few years, plus it caused my bottom teeth to crowd so they’re crooked.

I went through this a month ago! I ended up having an infection from where the teeth were trying to break through and had to be put on medicine for  10 days to remove the infection. Then I had to get the teeth removed after that. The only thing that helped the pain was mouth wash with aniseptice, it worked miracles!!

cls9q:  It’ll go away. I just had mine taken out.. like seriously a week ago. Every now and then they would start coming in a little more and my mouth would be so sore for days. 

Since all of my wisdom teeth were through the gums, they just had to pull them like pulling any old tooth. I still had IV sedation. Whole thing took like an hour.

I came home from surgery, slept for abotu 4 hours, and then I was up and moving around like normal. Of course, I took the 800mg ibuprofen they gave me every 8 hours, changed the gauze, and I would take the narcotic pain pill before bed just to make sure I wouldn’t wake up with any pain in the middle of the night. Bleeding stopped by dinner time the next day. 

I’m still taking two 200mg ibuprofen about every 10 hours or so. Still doin the soft food thing because I know my gums are still tender and I don’t want to hurt them.

My FI had a completely different experience as his WT were impacted. He ended up with dry socket- ouch! If yours are through the gumline like mine were, though, you’re definitely at an advantage.

Get them out. You wont regret it!

You need to get them out or the pain will just keep getting worse and you do not want your wisdom teeth to damage your good molars in front of them. I would contact your dentist or an oral surgeon asap.

cls9q:  all of mine came in straight. They did crowd my teeth slightly, but not much. 

Honestly, unless you dont take the pain meds or you get an infection (which is rare these days with proper care), the surgery and aftermath is nothing compared to the pain you’re feeling now.

cls9q:  It’s probably an infection, I’ve had it a couple of times. Because they’re partly cut through, food and bacteria get caught between the tooth and the gum (and under the gum) and cause an infection. If you go to the dentist they can give it a good clean and flush some antibiotics through and may put you on a course too. It’s awful pain, isn’t it?! It radiates all through your ears and head, ugh. I’d recommend finding some good pain killers.

I was in Thailand when I got an infection once, and through a massive communication breakdown while trying to buy some pain killers I ended up with surgical strength medication. SUCH blissful relief ;).

I need mine out too, they’re pushing my once perfectly straight bottom teeth out of alignment :(. It’s just so expensive in Australia, I don’t know what it’s like cost-wise where you are :(.

cls9q:  my bottom ones still had the flap of gum like youre describing, which is why i’m still tender there. The top ones were a breeze and arent tender at all

MichiganGirl24:  If you don’t mind me asking, how much did it cost you (and where are you based)?

You totally don’t have to answer if you’re uncomfortable.

cls9q:  I don’t think so, no. It is AWFUL, I’ll be straight with you. I was crying but it was definitely worth it.

cls9q:  Usually at an oral surgeons office you will have one consult appointment to get an x-ray and figure our their plan, then your 2nd visit would be to get them extracted.
