@_summergirl_1:  not a big deal at all (as long as you don’t get dry sockets!) I had all 4 done at once and was eating almost normally that night.

It’s not bad at all.  I had all four out (impacted) when I was 16.  It was sore for a few days, but that’s all.

My husband had three of his removed at once. They were impacted & the roots were disfigured.

He was prescribed vicodin and he didn’t need it one. He was a total trooper. A little sore for the first few days but other than that, he was totally fine.

I had all 4 removed at once.  It was the only dental work I’ve ever had done, and it wasn’t that bad.  I just ate pudding and shakes for a day or two… Didn’t even need the Rx pain meds they gave me, I just took Advil.

I had mine out when I was 18 (28 now), and I didn’t think it was bad at all. I guess everyone is different though. I didn’t needs the pain meds either. I actually remember going out the night I got the out…ughh, to be young again…lol.

EVERY person is different.  Don’t worry about it– they will provide you with pain medication (vicodin, probably) so you won’t have to worry about the onslought of pain.

 

I was a little “out of it” for a day or so.  But then, I was put under and had all 4 teeth surgically extracted.

I had all 4 out when I was 16, it really wasn’t that bad. Though my dad also misread the dosage on the painkiller bottle and gave me way too many… so I was really out of it.

I had IV sedation and I felt like I took the nicest beauty nap.  Seriously the best way to have teeth taken out EVER..  Went back to class the next day and hardly had to use any pain killers.

I’m a dentist and I take out teeth all the time.  If your teeth are impacted, chances are you’ll experience at least a lil bit of discomfort in the days following.  People who have the teeth fully erupted are usually completely fine the days following.

If you’re going to be sedated, good for you!  You won’t remember a thing.  If you’re not and are just going to receive local anesthesia, the worst part is the anesthesia (needles).  After that, you should only feel a lot of pressure/pushing.  You might also hear noises, as a tooth sometimes has to be sectioned before taking it out.

Good lucK!  You’ll only have to do this once.. (rarely more!)

the pain after the removal is nowhere near as bad as the pain of having them.

As a PP stated the pain is different for everyone! I didn’t take a single pain pill after having all four removed (prescriped or OTC). Fi got his done about 6 months later and was in bed for 3 days! Only ate jello, he was a bit of a baby ;p

I waited until I was 37 because I was so scared (and messed up my braces straightened teeth in the process). It wasn’t that bad, I did it with just novacaine because taking a pill that would make me forget everything before I even left to go to the dentist scared me.

I got a dry socket, that part was horrible, had to go get it packed every morning. If you can follow the instructions to a t and avoid a dry socket it’s really not that awful

I had mine out at 19 and it was fine. They took one of them out a couple of months before the other three because it was the most problematic one and couldn’t wait. They kept me awake for the single tooth removal and put me under for the other three. Afterwards I was woozy for a few hours from the sedative. Just eat soft foods for a few days afterwards and avoid getting a dry socket and you will be fine 🙂

If you’re scared of the pain of the IV, ask for some Lidocaine (sp?)  That will numb the area before they put the needle into the vein…you won’t even feel the needle going in!
