I had 2 impacted and the other two were starting to push out. The impacted ones took a day or so longer to heal, but I had the surgery on Friday and was fine by the next Tuesday.

All my brothers (3) have had theirs out…and i watched the whole process…one of them had all 4 impacted also…his swelling was gone after a week. You should be fine. just make sure that you do EVERYTHING they tell you to. and ice, ice and more ice for your face!

All of my swelling was gone within a week, but my little sister just had hers out, and her swelling only lasted two days!   Everyone is a little different, but you’ll probably be fine two weeks after at your bridal shower.

As long as you watch out for dry socket, and follow the follow up, you should be fine.  If you’re a quick healer, I would figure you’d be alright.

I’ve had friends that have had pretty bad swelling, but it was gone within a few days.  Lucky me, the only way people knew I was gumming my meals was because I told them.  I think all four of mine were impacted, and I had another four taken out for braces.

You can’t wait until right after the wedding? I had all 4 of mine out last year and was fine within a few days. My face was slighty puffy for a week, but honestly after 7 days it was gone.

You’ll be fine!! I felt better in a few days, and was 100% back to normal in no more than a week!

My sister’s were impacted and she was fine within the week. I haven’t had mine out yet, so I don’t know what mine will look like as of yet. = ) I think you’ll be fine.

You’ll be fine! I had 4 impacted, was knocked out for the surgery and everything went A-OK. Just listen and follow all the doctor’s recommendations for eating so you dont get dry sockets. Sleep as much as you can in the beginning and your body will start the healing process. I survived on jello, ice cream, and applesauce!! Oh- and dont drink from a straw!!

I had three impacted. I swear to you, my cheeks didn’t swell AT ALL. it was crazy. I can’t swallow pills, so I didn’t even take the vicodin they gave me! I took liquid tylonol and that was it. 

You’ll be in pain for a few days, but if you listen to their instructions, and eat VERY carefully (and clean your mouth like a maniac when they say you can), it will be fine. Best of luck! As for missing planning time..I didn’t sleep that much. I actually spent a LOT of time on WB that week!

You’ll  be fine! I had all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth out. I went into the hospital and they put me out and took them all out at once. They gave me the choice of having 2 out at a time in the chair or having them all out at once – I chose all out at once cos I didn’t want to know anything about it! LOL

I came home at about 4pm and slept until about 11am the next day and apart from my new “gaps” being a bit tender I was fine. I didn’t have any swelling or bruising and I soon got over eating custard and stuff and was eating normal food. The biggest thing I had to remember was to wash out my gaps after eating – ICK I know! You’ll be fine!

i hate to scare you, but my experience has been different. it may be because i got mine out at 28, which the dentist said is unusual. i had swelling for about 8 days and the healing process has been very difficult. 2 weeks later, im still not eating solid food. not to mention the holes that are there when the stitches dissolve. food gets stuck in the wholes and the dentist gives you a tool to flush them. i was told the holes can take up to 2 months to completely heal.  if you get it done before the wedding, try only to have smoothies that day.  you dont want to excuse yourself during dinner to flush the chicken out of the whole.  i flused mashed potatoes last night…it was disgusting.
