AHH ok i was told that my wisdom would not have any room to come in and well they did and i didnt have any problems but now i feel like there is more teeth trying to come in and i am getting a sore throat and my face hurts and ears hurt sometimes. I am going to call the dentist tomorrow to see if i can get in because they are really starting to bother me. I havent been to the dentist in probably 5 years ( i know im bad) I Have always hated going to the dentist. I had oral surgery when i was 10 to put 14 K gold chains in my gums for my teeth to come up straight, then had to have elastic sewn threw them on top of that braces for 5 years. Im wondering if i should have them done before the wedding. I am getting married on September 13th. I hate going to the dentist.

No problem. Sounds like you might need a week of antibiotics though. Make the appointment, get knocked out and you will be looking back to normal within a week. My advice, make an appointment NOW, so you lose the pain and can focus on the wedding afterwards.

Ouch. I hate going to the dentist too! I go regularly and always end up with at least one cavity…bad genetics I guess. If you’re in pain (and it sounds like you are), then you might want to go. I hope everything works out for the best.

When I had my wisdom teeth taken out, I was in some pain for a few days but nothing that painkillers couldn’t do. Though a trip to the dentist isn’t a visit to a theme park, I say do it now so you can enjoy the wedding pain-free!

Oooh, sorry to hear that your wisdom teeth are bothering you. I had all 4 of mine removed, and while it isn’t pleasant, after 2 or so days of discomfort, you’ll be better. I’d recommend getting them out before your wedding so you have one less thing to worry about. Good luck!

Aw, sorry you hate the dentist… I think to avoid complications you should get it done before the wedding. I had all my 4 wisdom teeth taken out at the same time in 45mins.
After 3 days… I was back to normal. Ask your dentist what he/she thinks

Yikes, that sounds super painful. For sure go see the dentist and see what they have to say. I think you should take care of it before the wedding, though, because you don’t want it to go away but then flare up again right around the wedding.

i would get it done ASAP. it is a simple procedure and they knock you out. you’ll be as good as new within a few days.

I also had wisdom teeth stuff come up last week – I was having pain about 3 months ago and had x-rays taken. The pain went away a bit later. Last week (!), 4 weeks before the wedding, they called to say that I had impacted wisdom teeth that needed to come out. I saw the oral surgeon and he said that most wisdom teeth pain was from infection, not from the teeth "pushing" out, and that if I had more pain before the wedding, I could get on antibiotics, as it was too close to the wedding to make an appointment, get in recovery time, and be back to normal. You should definitely see someone, but you may be able to take antibiotics and postpone the surgery.

get them done NOW. You’ll be fine by September
If you let them grow in a little more all "no big deal" like my parents did with me, they’ll ruin your orthodontic work. wisdom teeth grow in sideways. 7 years of braces and i have crowded lower teeth. Get them out!

Yikes! I hate the dentist too. I always have to sit on my hands so I don’t slap them away from my mouth! I would also recommend having your WT out before your wedding. There’s still enough time left, that if you end up swelling like some people do, that should all be gone by the time your day arrives!

Go NOW! When FI had to have his out (about a month ago), they had become impacted/infected, so he had to go on antibiotics for a week before he could have his sugery, and it took him two weeks before he was back to regular food. So get it out of the way, asap- it can turn bad quickly if you don’t- we thought FI would be fine until the end of summer, but it seemed like in less than two days he developed a really painful infection 🙁 He’s perfectly fine now though!

i’m sorry about all of that 🙁
I had braces in 2nd grade. awful.
I just recently went to the orthodontist and they told me that I need braces AGAIN!!! I’m 23!!! I told them that it would have to wait until after the wedding!!

I agree-go now! I had mine taken out 6 or 7 years ago. Mine were impacted so I elected to be put to sleep while they did it. My body didn’t take well to the anesthesia and the Vicodin (I was sleepy & groggy for 2/3 days) but within a week I felt better and within 2 weeks my face wasn’t puffy and bruised anymore. Good luck!
